Due to the effects of climate change and population growth, reservoirs play a more and more important role in water resources management. The management of a multi-reservoir system is complex due to the curse of dimensionalities, nonlinearities and conflicts between different objectives. The optimal operation of a multi-reservoir system operation typically involves optimization and simulation models, which can provide the quantitative information to improve operational water management. The objectives of this paper are to extend previous state-of-the-art reviews in the operational management of a network of multi-purpose reservoirs with recent developments and to focus on the application of Model Predictive Control for real time control of a reservoir system.
