This paper reports on a case study for Ghana's thermal/hydroelectric generation system that evaluates the incremental cost of returning dam outflows to pre-dam or near pre-dam conditions. This mode of operation is termed Run of River (ROR) operation. It appears that two key factors — the availability of alternatives for economically expanding hydro… CONTINUE READING
