ABSTRACT. – Optimizing the operation of a reservoir with complex uses. Case study for hydrotechnical system Vârșolț. Water reservoirs play an important role in ensuring water resources, especially in the case of watercourses that have a strong torrent character with high flow variations and which requires flow regulation and water reserves. But few reservoirs have only one role. In the operation of reservoirs with complex uses, conflicts often arise, in particular, on the priorities of satisfying various uses and the distribution of water resources over time. These conflicts cannot always be solved by the level of the market economy, or by moment interests or local interests. Solutions are even more complicated when the reservoir is part of a complex hydrotechnical system. This paper work proposes some general solutions for the optimization of the operation of a hydrotechnical system (operating regulation, support system of the exploitation decision) and, as a case study, the optimization of the operation of the Hydrotechnical System Vârșolț.
Keywords: reservoir, hydrotechnical system, conflicts, running optimization, operating regulation..
