Optimal Long-Term Operation of Electric Power Systems

This book deals with a very important problem in power system planning for countries in which hydrogeneration accounts for the greatest part of the system power production. During the past thirty years many techniques have been developed to cope with the long-term operation of hydro reser­ voirs. Th...
