Abstract

Network flow programming (NFP) can effectively simulate water allocation due to its computational efficiency and structural flexibility. One of the key issues while using such a model is to mimic the complexity of water allocation rules by properly assigning a set of cost coefficients to every arc in the water supply network. Similar to the concept of Israel and Lund (1999), this study proposed a procedure to determine the cost coefficients of a pure NFP-based simulation model. It can correctly preserve the water allocation priorities which were originated from allocation rules of water rights, reservoir operating rule curves, water convey preferences and multi-reservoir storage allocations, etc. Water allocation rules were converted into linear inequalities composed of arc cost coefficients through path enumeration analysis. These linear inequalities are then solved to obtain a set of cost coefficients which conform to the allocation priorities.
