Application of optimization techniques for determining the optimal operation policy for reservoir is a major area in water resources planning and management. Linear programming, ruled by evolution techniques, has become popular for solving optimization problems in diversified fields of science. An LP-based yield model (YM) has been used to reevaluate the annual yield available from the reservoirs for irrigation. This paper extends the basic yield model and presents a yield model for a multiple-reservoir system consisting of single-purpose reservoirs. Optimum yield of reservoirs system is calculated by yield model. The objective is to achieve prespecified reliability for irrigation and to incorporate an allowable deficit in the annual irrigation target. The yield model is applied to a system of two reservoirs in theManarRiverinIndia. This model can act as a better screening tool in planning by providing outputs that can be very useful in improving the efficiency and accuracy of detailed analysis methods such as simulation.
