OPERATIONAL CONTROL RULES BASED ON COMPONENTS
1. Purpose and objectives
To provide a basic framework, terminology and introduction to the use
of a series of individual aspects of water system information components
which can be combined to develop operational control rules for water
resources management, with minimal data requirements.
This report explains how to establish control components covering the following aspects of relevance to the authorities responsible for the operational management of water resource systems.
It shows how flexible operational control rules can be produced for
most situations by separating the problem into an appropriate combination
of components selected from the above list. It explains how to blend,
pre-monitor and revise the selection to produce a final, easily used set of
rules for routine operations. The report also includes a case study of a
river basin in Wales, UK, and other examples which illustrate all aspects
of the method.
To apply the methods outlined in the component report effectively, the
user needs to have information on the reservoirs and other water resource
works in the system, the demands placed on them, and some basic data on the
hydrological characteristics of the basin.
An effective package of control rules for operational management,
especially suited to the local conditions, can be produced.
5. Operational requirements and restrictions
