Reservoir Inflow Forecast System
The inflow forecasting system is an essential tool to assist dam owners in decision making and planning. Effective and optimized hydropower reservoir operation, monitor and forecast inflows and lake level to provide benefits in maximizing energy revenue, while taking into account dam safety risks.
The system offered by TNB Research consist of followings criteria;
Automated integration of Forecast rainfall
Forecast inflow and lake level in a reservoir up to 7 days ahead
Part of Reservoir Early Warning System
Integrate telemetry, SCADA and operation to allow fast and accurate Decision Support System
Enhancement to support reservoir optimisation
Rainfall forecast from a Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) model
Telemetry - Real-time rainfall and river level measurements
SCADA - Real-time dam release and lake level measurements
Database Management System
Hydrology and Hyraulic Model
Improved water management : With a forecast system in place, reservoir managers can better predict future inflows and outflows.
Ability to plan for extreme weather events by alerting managers to potential flooding risks, allowing them to take proactive measures to reduce the impact.
Improved electricity generation by accurately predicting inflows, energy production can be optimized, helping to reduce costs and ensure a stable energy supply.
