Abstract

This study proposes a heuristic algorithm to connect with simulation model for searching the optimal reservoir rule curves. The proposed model was applied to determine the optimal rule curves of the Ubolratana reservoir (the Chi River Basin, Thailand). The results showed that the pattern of the obtained rule curves similar to the existing rule curve. Then the obtained rule curves were used to simulate the Ubolratana reservoir system with the synthetic inflows. The results indicated that the frequency of water shortage and the average water shortage are reduced to 44.31 and 43.75% respectively, the frequency of excess release and the average excess release are reduced to 24.08% and 22.81%.
