A Genetic Algorithm (GA) model developed for determining the optimal operating policy for a multipurpose reservoir is presented in this paper. The performance of the GA model is compared with stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) model. The advantage of GA model is that it neither requires storage discretization nor need to have characteristic inflow value like SDP model. The GA model is found to be promising and competitive and can be used as potential alternative to SDP model.
