Abstract

In this study, the Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm was developed to solve the Chenderoh Reservoir operation optimisation problem which located in the state of Perak, Malaysia. The proposed algorithm aimed to minimise the water deficit in the operating system and examine its performance impact based on monthly and weekly data input. Due to its capability to identify different possible events occurring in the reservoir, the ABC algorithm provides promising and comparable solutions for optimum release curves. The optimal release curves were then used to stimulate the reservoir release under different operating times under different inflow scenarios. To investigate the performance of both the monthly and weekly ABC optimisation employed in the reservoir, the well-known reliability, resilience and vulnerability indices were used for performance assessment. The indices tests revealed that weekly ABC optimisation outperformed in terms of reliability and vulnerability leading to the development of a better release policy for optimal operation.
