Objects of the course are stochastic and system methods of solution of reservoirs and water resources systems. Includes probability concepts for solution of storage and flood control capacity of reservoirs, optimization problems in system design and management, real-time management issues including the use of mathematical models. Control theory and its applications. Linear programming, nonlinear programming, dynamic programming. Multi-criteria optimization. Mathematical models for system control (especially simulation models, adaptive and learning models), use of modern real-time management technologies (expert systems), water management dispatching issues, system management in new economic conditions.


Defence of a seminar paper on a given topic. The content of the seminar paper is a critical literature search, a description of the methodology of solution and an analysis of the results of an individual or team task. Submission of the seminar paper in electronic form, oral presentation and defence.
