Determining yield from reservoir of given capacity.

Demands & optimal Reservoir operation


  • It has already been discusse to how the reservoir capacity is determine for some specific demand and vice versa.
  • The demand may remain constant throughout the year or may be varying from time to time.
  • Demand pattern from a reservoir actually depends upon the purpose for which the reservoir has been made.
  • Hence it is obvious that demand will vary for different types of reservoirs.
  • Moreover, the demands are man-made, and if need be, they can be adjusted in such a way that maximum benefits are derived from the reservoir.
  • If by slightly varying the demands, lot of savings can bemade then we must go in for that.
  • This aspect is known as optimal planning for reservoirs. It involves economic considerations.
