Monitoring and supervision of waterworks, waterworks failures and special floods. Reliability of water works. Issues of winter operation of streams, reservoirs and waterworks, ice phenomena and processes on streams, reservoirs and waterworks and management and active influence of the winter regime. Surface water quality in streams and reservoirs, modelling and management of water quality in reservoirs, temperature and oxygen regime of reservoirs. Operation of hydropower plants, surface water permits, operating regimes of continuous, peak-load and pumped storage hydropower plants. Failure conditions and their treatment. Reconstruction and modernisation of dams, weirs and navigation facilities. Optimisation of operations, damages and risks. Relationship between hydraulic structure operations and the surrounding environment, environmental impact assessment of hydraulic structures.

Study Objective:

To familiarize students with the operation of hydraulic schemes, both theoretically and practically. To teach students how to define questions related to the operation of water works and to find answers to them leading to specific organisational and technical solutions.
