Neuro-dynamic programming for the efficient management of reservoir networks
The management of a water reservoir can be improved thanks to the use of stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) to generate management policies which are efficient with respect to the management objectives (flood protection, water supply for irrigation and hydropower generation, respect of minimum environmental flows, etc.). The improvement in efficiency is even more remarkable when the problem involves a reservoir network, that is a set of reservoirs which are interconnected. Unfortunately, SDP is affected by the “curse of dimensionality” and computing time and computer memory occupation can quickly become unbearable. Neuro-dynamic programming (NDP) can sensibly reduce the demands on computer time and memory thanks to the approximation of Bellman functions with Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). In this paper an application of neuro-dynamic programming to the problem of the management of reservoir networks is presented.
