Abstract

In this paper, we removing the Kariba Dam and replacing it with 18 smaller dams along the Zambezi river. Furthermore, we set up three progressive models-the cascade dam system model, the long-term optimal dispatch of the new system model, and the successive linear programming optimal scheduling model, to construct and analysis the new multiple dam system, aiming at keeping a reasonable balance between safety and costs. The whole work is based on a more protective and efficient hydropower system. At last, we provide a strategy for modulating the water flow through the new system dams. Meanwhile, a comprehensive guidance to the ZRA managers against extreme conditions are also offed in our conclusion.
