A high resolution flood forecasting tool and hydropower simulator
MetadataShow full item record
Two hydrological models for two regions in central Norway using respectively observation inputs from stations and distributed inputs from a meteorological model where set up and calibrated to test their performances; surprisingly the model with distributed forecasted data performed similarly to the one with observations. To use such models in a proposed flood forecasting system, a simple hydropower simulator routine has been coded in order to represent the dynamics of non natural rivers. Such systems has been the applied to two case studies, showing the limitations of the flood forecasting system in simulating events happening in limited areas and its higher accuracy when simulating a hydropower system that encompasses a bigger catchment area.
