Defined scenarios and sub-scenarios

ScenarioDescription
Optimization model to maximize total hydropower production in Seimare–Karkheh system 
Optimization model to minimize squared of the difference between release and need in Seimare-Karkheh system 
Simulation model under Hydropower Standard Operating Policy (HSOP) 
Sub-scenarioDescription
Hydropower system operation with no consideration of the downstream environmental flow requirements 
The release volume from the reservoirs is greater than or equal to the minimum environmental flow requirements (EMC-C of the FDC shifting method) 
The release volume from the reservoirs is greater than or equal to the flow bounded by the minimum and maximum environmental flow requirements (EMC-B of the FDC shifting method) 
The release volume from the reservoirs is greater than or equal to the maximum environmental flow requirements (EMC-A of the FDC shifting method)
