Abstract: Hydropower is the largest renewable source of energy and is second largest source of electricity generation. The hydropower generation has many advantages which make it a desired source of electricity generation. According to estimate of water vision (2000), only about 33% of economically feasible hydropower potential of the world has been developed so far. There are many difficult sites of hydropower which are yet to be developed. India has hydropower potential of 84000MW out of which only 25% has been tapped so far. Tributaries have about 30% of power potential of India and only a negligible fraction of it has been developed. The main objective of the study is to know the maximum hydropower energy which can be generated from the given 10-daily monthly flows. The approach to the study is in the sequence of (1) Study of project as run-off the river scheme with reservoir. (2) To know the minimum reservoir capacity required to generate the maximum energy. Use of LP implicit stochastic reservoir yield model for the system. Use of software "L.INDO" for the solution of yield model. (3) Reservoir regulation using Standard operating policy (SOP) (4) Economic performance evaluations.
