    Can you provide more information as to who you are, what organization you are affiliated with, and what kind of license you have?

    Saddam, we are unable to provide this level of technical support for free academic licenses.  Have you taken the online course yet?  Perhaps that will answer your questions.

    These kinds of issues are discussed in detail in the online course: https://goldsimcourses.appspot.com/basic_goldsim/course

    S.Y.,

    We have developed a simple hydropower optimization model. Keep in mind, this type of model is site specific so while we don't have a 1-size fits all type of solution for you, I think this example might help you:

    https://support.goldsim.com/hc/en-us/articles/115012825368-Hydroelectric-Power-Revenue-Optimization 

    The idea is to run the model using our optimization routine to see how to change inputs in order to maximize power generation.

    S.Y., 

    I suggest that you use a submodel inside the main model. Have the main model run on a monthly basic time step. At the beginning of each month in the main model, trigger the submodel to run, which simulates only the current month. Configure the submodel to run as an optimization. This means the optimization is repeated each month. At the end of each month, the submodel outputs the optimized flow values you are looking for.

    Here is an example that uses a submodel to run optimization repeatedly: https://support.goldsim.com/hc/en-us/articles/360047679353-Dynamic-Optimization 

    Let me know if that helps. Unfortunately, we can't spend a lot of time constructing and designing this model for you but I'm hopeful that these types of examples will help you along the way.

    What elements in your model are the optimization variables, and point to the element in the model that is your objective function (that you are trying to maximize or minimize) each month?
