Energy, agriculture, and water: a multiobjective programming analysis of the operations of the Aswân High Dam
A multiobjective programming analysis of the operations ofthe Aswân High Dam is developed using an historical sequence (1871 - 1976) of monthly inflows as inputs to a simulation process. The trade-offs between hydroelectric energy generation, agricultural water needs, and environmental degradation from river scouring are examined. Production of short-term (three to four months) peak hydropower output is also evaluated.
