Abstract The completion of Shuibuya, the last hydropower station to be constructed in the Qingjiang cascade, signifies China's successful development of the world's largest mixed cascade hydropower generation system. Joint operation of such cascaded hydropower stations is considered necessary to improve hydropower output in China. In this study, two modeling methods – routine and optimal operations – were adopted, based on existing rules of reservoir operation, to determine the effects of joint… CONTINUE READING
