- Kariba Dam Kriging Interpolation principal component analysis genetic algorithm
- The Kariba Dam on the Zambezi River is in dire need of maintenance. This paper is intended to study the strategy of removing and replacing the Kariba Dam.The elevation map of the watershed of Zambezi River is made and rasterized by using Kriging Interpolation. Combining the precipitation and geological condition of the basin, this paper identifies 21 points as candidate points and ranks them with the method of principal component analysis. Then the lowest cost is regarded as the objective function, simultaneously capabilities of water resource utilization and levels of protection for Lake Kariba regarded as the restriction. Eventually, this paper determines the specific number, 18, of dams through the genetic algorithm.
