The Tigris hydropower system operations: the need for an integrated approach
MetadataShow full item record
The Tigris hydropower system is analyzed through an integrated operational policy. The operation algorithm is formulated in terms of non-linear programming to maximize energy production while satisfying water demands in the basin. The system is optimized for different cases, and the effects of system modifications in terms of the reservoir volume of Ilisu Dam and the demand constraints are examined. In addition, the state of the Garzan subsystem is analyzed to explore plant utilization when optimizing the entire system operations. The results show the necessity of such an integrated operation plan to supply water demands in the basin.
