The iRONS Knowledge Transfer (KT) Notebooks is a set of simple examples to demonstrate the value of simulation and optimisation tools for reservoir operations by application to ‘proof-of-concept’ systems.

This is the list all the Notebooks that are currently included in iRONS including their description and links to run them online:

1.a. Simple example of how to use Jupyter Notebooks: uses a sound wave example to show how to use Jupyter Notebooks and interactive visualization elements. Link

2.a. Calibration and evaluation of a rainfall-runoff model: shows how to calibrate, both manually and automatically, a rainfall-runoff model, which could be used to estimate reservoir inflows. Link

3.a. Recursive decisions and multi-objective optimisation: shows how simulation models and optimisation algorithms can be used to derive optimal release scheduling for a simple water reservoir system. Link

3.b. Decision making under uncertainty: shows how to deal with uncertainty - and the difference between deterministic and stochastic optimisation - when deriving optimal reservoir releases. Link

3.c. Reservoir operating policy: shows how to optimise the operating policy of a water reservoir system (using a “policy search” approach). Link

3.d. Types of reservoir operating policies: shows how to define different operating policies for different reservoir purposes and how to account for variability over the year. Link
