Abstract : The major intent of this report is to provide guidance for the use of HEC-PRM (and deterministic optimization models in general) for seasonal and long-term operation planning. Seasonal and long-term operation planning are fairly different undertakings, in the level of analysis detail, the role of hydrology and uncertainty, and the frequency of policy revision (seasonal operations can be revised monthly). Thus the details of setting up, conducting, and interpreting optimization model results can differ significantly between these two applications. For both optimization model applications, simulation modeling is an important, if not essential, companion. As such, it is useful to review the wide variety of operating-rule forms available for reservoir system simulation modeling.
