This paper provides an analysis of the Mitis River System, as part of Hydro-Quebec’s overall power generating system. The intent is to develop a linear program to model this river system and to recommend optimal solution to maximize electricity output, while considering environmental and operational constraints. Finally, analysis of the operational constraints will provide valuable insight into which constraints are binding and which may be modified to improve production.
