[Bou15] Operational Optimization of a Multipurpose Hydropower- Irrigation plant

Rapport Scientifique : Date de dépot: 2015/09/10, Nb pages 8, (Tech. Rep.: CEDRIC-15-3396)
Résumé: This report summarizes my Ph.D. research progress from December 2014 to September 2015. This time period corresponds the first year of my Ph.D. candidacy. The goal of research is gaining an economic advantage through operational optimization of a hydropower plant and by the best irrigation practices while reducing environmental burdens. The challenge is to find the most realistic model based on the stochastic features of water resources, power demand and the irrigation profile. To achieve our goal, methods involving and joining data mining and mathematical programming will serve as a base for a Decision Support Tool (DST). This multi-functional tool for operation planning will be capable of enhancing the performance of a multi- purpose reservoir system on several levels starting with appropriate water releases, scheduled irrigation water allocation and cropping pattern. Based on the feature of DST, a distributed control structure is proposed according to the knowledge gained. LabVIEW is employed to develop human machine interface (HMI) and sequential control while MATLAB is used to implement analysis, optimization and simulation.
