The optimization of water pumping plants activation schedules is a signicant issue when managing emergency and costly water transfers under drought risk. This study analyzes an optimization problem using the scenario analysis approach. The model searches for the identication of optimal decision rules by balancing the risk of water shortages and the operating cost of pumping stations. Scenario optimization provides 'barycentric' values dening activation threshold comparing hydrologic synthetic series results.

Abstract

The optimization of water pumping plants activation schedules is a signicant issue when managing emergency and costly water transfers under drought risk. This study analyzes an optimization problem using the scenario analysis approach. The model searches for the identication of optimal decision rules by balancing the risk of water shortages and the operating cost of pumping stations. Scenario optimization provides 'barycentric' values dening activation threshold comparing hydrologic synthetic series results.
