This course (118-0112-01 laboratory) can only be taken in combination with 118-0112-00 (theory part).

KurzbeschreibungThe course allows the students to apply concepts and methods concerning planning and management of water resources systems by developing a numerical exercise based on the real-world case study.
The theoretical framework will be given in the course "Participatory and Integrated Water Resources Planning" (118-0112-00)
LernzielAnalyse and model the relationship between hydropower generation and other water related interests (both socio-economic and environmental) in the proposed real-world case study.
Explore the effects of different hydropower reservoirs' operation strategies on the identified relationships and identify potential fair tradeoffs in water resources allocation.
InhaltStudents will develop a project in small groups.
The group work is organized according to the following structure
- Water system analysis
- Identification of criteria and indicators for water related interests
- Coding of water system model and indicators
- Scenario definition
- Design of the reservoir operation strategies
- Comparison and selection of interesting strategies
SkriptReading material (scientific papers, reports, etc.).
Handouts for each step of the group work.
Examples of code (basic programming and Matlab knowledge required)
