In this study, an optimization model is developed for monthly operation of a multi-purpose
hydropower reservoirs using genetic algorithm. The real value encoding approach is used
considering alternative representation, selection, crossover, and mutation schemes. The
constraints are handled using the Multiplicative Penalty Method (MPM) function, in order to
evaluate the objective function in deferent conditions. The reliability of water allocation to
different demands and hydropower generation are evaluated using an economic objective
function which has been calculated based on the actual value of water and energy of Karoon-I Reservoir in southwestern part of Iran. The results of this study have shown the importance of selecting a suitable mutation operator for reducing the computational run time of the optimization model. The robustness and efficiency of genetic algorithm in developing the operation policies for a multi-purpose hydropower reservoir is discussed in the paper.
