MiPWIF™- Water Inflow Forecasting

MiPWIF™ is designed to forecast water inflow in a dam/reservoir. Water Inflow Forecast (WIF) is used in water resource planning, power generation, irrigation and flood control.   In the context of power system engineering, WIF has importance in hydro system modelling. Accurate prediction of water inflow in a reservoir helps to predict future hydro generation accurately leading to better scheduling.

In deregulated environment better scheduling leads to economic operation of utilities. Water inflow forecasting is also useful in flood forecasting, reservoir operation planning, etc.
