For the purpose of real-time dam operation in large river basins, an integrated simulation and optimization system (ISOS) has been constructed by combining distributed hydrological inflow predictions with rolling horizon decision making. First, with operational quantitative precipitation forecasts (QPFs) over a forecast horizon (FH), the ISOS is applied to obtain an optimal rule for dam releases; second, with the corrected satellite precipitation, the prescribed rule is employed for the reservoir operation over a decision horizon (DH). The ISOS is applied to the Red River Basin (169,000 km2), to test its performance for optimizing multidam releases in the large river basin. Results show that by using the ISOS, two things were simultaneously achieved, reducing the water level at Hanoi to avoid flooding while raising water storage in Hoa Binh reservoir at the end of flood season for better hydropower generation. Through comparing reservoir performances with different FHs, the effective forecast horizon (EFH) was derived for the 3-reservoir system in the Red River. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

Reservoir is an efficient way for flood control and improving all sectors related to water resources in the integrated water resources management. Moreover, multiobjective reservoir plays a significant role in the development of a country's economy especially in developing countries. All multi-objective reservoirs have conflicts and disputes in flood control and water use, which makes the operator a great challenge in the decision of reservoir operation. For improved multi-objective reservoir operation, an integrated modeling system has been developed by incorporating a global optimization system (SCE-UA) into a distributed biosphere hydrological model (WEB-DHM) coupled with the reservoir routing module. The new integrated modeling system has been tested in the Da River subbasin of the Red River and showed the capability of reproducing observed reservoir inflows and optimizing the multi-objective reservoir operation. First, the WEB-DHM was calibrated for the inflows to the Hoa Binh Reservoir in the Da River. Second, the WEB-DHM coupled with the reservoir routing module was tested by simulating the reservoir water level, when using the observed dam outflows as the reservoir release. Third, the new integrated modeling system was evaluated by optimizing the operation rule of the Hoa Binh Reservoir from 1 June to 28 July 2006, which covered the annual largest flood peak. By using the optimal rule for the reservoir operation, the annual largest flood peak at downstream control point (Ben Ngoc station) was successfully reduced (by about 2.4 m for water level and 2500 m3·s-1 for discharge); while after the simulation periods, the reservoir water level was increased by about 20 m that could supply future water use. © Higher Education Press and Springer-Verlag 2009.
