Linear Programming for Optimal Reservoir Operation of Chao Phraya River Basin
This paper presents the optimization of reservoirs operation in Chao Phraya basin of Thailand. Linear Programming was applied to calculate the optimal volumes of water released and water storage of Bhumibol and Sirikit reservoirs. The results are the optimal solutions that compare with the actual volume in year 2011 and 2012. It helps decrease the volume of downstream flood peak, if applying the results controls the reservoirs operation.
