Reservoir System Simulation Through Network Flow Programmingby Michael C. Archer, California Dep of Water Resources, Sacramento, CA, USA,

Abstract: A generalized reservoir system simulation model that makes use of a network flow programming technique has been developed for use in planning and operation studies of multi-purpose water resources systems as performed by the California Department of Water Resources. Advantages of the developed model over the conventional accounting type reservoir simulation model are twofold: 1) faster execution of the model in a computer and 2) more modeling flexibility due to the ability to assign priorities among the various purposes. A case study is presented to demonstrate these advantages through the example of the operation of Isabella Lake on the Kern River in central California.
