Optimization
The RiverWare Optimization solver uses a preemptive linear goal programming solution. Instead of solving a model on a timestep-by-timestep basis, Optimization provides a single global solution over all objects and all timesteps. Typically Optimization is used to determine the “best” solution in terms of a stated objective, such as maximizing the value of hydropower over the run period, while satisfying higher-priority policy constraints.
For details about the RiverWare Optimization solver, see “Optimization Overview” in Optimization.
