Optimisation of a multiple-reservoir system becomes increasingly complex when conflicting water uses exist, such as water supply, irrigation, hydroelectric power generation etc. Hydronomeas is a software tool, suitable for simulating and conducting a search for the optimum water resources management policy of a multi-purpose hydrosystem. The mathematical model is based on recent introduction and theoretical development of parametric rules for operation of multiple-reservoir systems. Software implementation was such performed that the model can be easily applied to a wide range of hydrosystems and that representation will be as realistic as possible, incorporating all natural, operational, environmental and other restrictions. Hydronomeas consists of several subsystems, including operational simulation, optimisation and visualisation. The first two cope with goals concerning both consumptive and energy-oriented water uses. Hydronomeas has been applied on the hydrosystem comprising all existing and under construction projects of the Acheloos river, its planned diversion and the related projects in Thessalia.
