A software system named Hydronomeas (version 2.0) has been developed to support the water resources management policy of EYDAP. The methodology implemented (parametrization-simulation-optimization) is based mainly on an original theoretical work. The mathematical framework used allows the allocation of the water demand to the different system components, keeping the number of control variables small. This enables the simulation and optimisation of complex hydrosystems such as the water resource system of Athens. For the simulation process with a given operating rule, multiple, competitive targets and constraints with specified priorities can be set, which are concerned among others, with the acceptable limits for the system reliability. In performing optimisation, users can select between three objective functions: a) the minimisation of the average failure, b) the minimisation of the overall average operational cost and c) the maximisation of the overall firm yield of the system for an acceptable failure level. The model uses as input historic hydrological time series or synthetic time series. The results are given in probabilistic terms and include the probability of failure for each target, the analytical water balance for reservoirs, the flow balance for aqueducts, and economical data of the system operation.
