Abstract

The study presents the results of genetic algorithm application to optimize energy utilization of the reservoir Sance on the river Ostravice The aim of our research was a proposal of operational rules for reservoir management in real time to obtain the maximum of hydropower energy Our solution has shown that proposed technique with operators of selection and crossing is very effective and can approach the optimum area more rapidly than other methods. 1 Introduction Drinking water for the population in the region Ostrava is the main purpose of the reservoir. The supply of drinking water has recently significantly decreased contrary to the project assumptions, because the Czech Republic has embarked on new economic conditio
