The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have initiated a collaborative project - the INTEGRAL Project - to develop improved tools for coordinating power generation and multipurpose reservoir operations. A Decision Support System (DSS) will be developed to aid in the collection, analysis and display of reservoir and power system data. An Integrated Modeling System will also be developed to support the scheduling, forecasting, and planning functions of the DSS. The decision support and modeling systems will be generalized for use by a variety of electric utilities and water resource agencies. An overview of major INTEGRAL Project components is presented.
