Abstract: A reservoir operations planning model for a potential reservoir site on the Karadj River in Iran was developed utilizing a personal computer and a commercial spreadsheet package. The model was developed to aid in the determination of the firm hydropower yield of this or any other potential reservoir site. The mathematical planning model can be used to size potential reservoir sites, to test alternative operating rules, and to choose near-optimal reservoir operation policies.
