Optimising Melbourne Water’s Bulk Water Supply System with a Five Year Horizon

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Melbourne Water uses a tool called OPTIMISR, developed in-house, to plan monthly reservoir volumes as well as transfers of water over a 12-month horizon. The goal of this project is to explore the application of the MiniZinc optimisation technology developed at Monash University to this optimisation problem, to increase the planning horizon from 12 to 60 months, and improve the interactive user interface to the system.
