Özet

Electricity has become one of the main pillars of a well-functioning society and hydroelectric power plants (HEPPs) are one of the main providers of energy in Turkey that are also renewable. To exploit the energy production capacity of existing HEPPs in Turkey and efficient usage of water, operational optimization could help immensely. A non-linear constrained optimization algorithm with an extension, namely a heuristic that provides starting points, has been implemented to maximize the energy production of a cascade HEPP system based on monthly inflow data.
