Flood Duration Optimal Operation Of Reservoir Using Moth Flame Optimization

Priya Chauhan and Sandeep Narulkar


In India, reservoirs are not only used for irrigation and electricity generation; they also play a critical role in flood prevention. During floods, water is stored, kept, and released from reservoirs for a variety of purposes. As a result, it is vital to efficiently utilize the reservoir's water in order to meet competing objectives. To optimize a large-reservoir system, thorough research and the development of system analytic methodologies, such as soft computing approaches, are required. In the current study, the Omkareshwar Sagar Project (OSP) Reservoir in India was optimized for target storage generation in order to satisfy annual demands, safeguard against flooding, and increase power generation. To ensure that the findings are as precise as feasible by Moth Flame Optimization (MFO), the OSP reservoir operations are optimized under two distinct monsoon situations. Optimized To maximize power output and satisfy the storage aim, a flood-proof system is required. Additionally, this work highlights the utility of Moth Flame Optimization in optimizing complex water resource systems.
