Abstract: According to the specific circumstances of Wanjiazhai Reservoir, establish a reservoir optimal scheduling nonlinear mathematical model with a maximum generation capacity target, this paper uses an improved simulated annealing genetic algorithm to solve the model. The algorithm is in view of the defects of the traditional simulated annealing genetic algorithm to improve the algorithm from three aspects: introducing the niche technology, using adaptive crossover and mutation strategy, using the elitist strategy during the selection. Through examples are calculated and compared with the traditional simulated annealing genetic algorithm, the improved algorithm effectively overcomes the stagnation phenomenon, to enhance the global search ability. Its optimization performance is better than that of the traditional simulated annealing genetic algorithm.


Keywords: Reservoir optimal operation, Simulated annealing genetic algorithm, Ecological niche, Adaptive, Optimal preservation.
