DPRCI /GAUSS A Program to Calculate Reservoir Yield Curves Using a Dynamic Programming Reservoir Operation AlgorithmBuras, Nathan; Smiley, Mark; Department of Hydrology & Water Resources, The University of Arizona (Department of Hydrology and Water Resources, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1994)This report presents a computer program which will calculate reservoir yield curves for reservoir operation policy based on optimization accomplished using a. dynamic programming algorithm. After discussion of the dynamic programming and Gauss elimination algorithms, the input requirements, execution procedures, source code presentation, sample output, and references are presented. The programs run in a relatively short time on an 80286 personal computer. They are written in FORTRAN7.7 and compiled using the LAHEY F776 compiler.
