Hydro generation scheduling is a nonlinear programming problem. This paper describes the hydro generation scheduling problem constraints. The optimal hydro scheduling problem is formulated as a large scale linear programming algorithm and is solved using a commercially available linear programming package. The selected objective function requires minimization of demand and generation of a hydro system. This paper also proposes Differential Evolution (DE) algorithm to solve the nonlinear optimization problem for hydro generation scheduling. The feasibility of the proposed method is demonstrated for the daily generation scheduling of a hydro system.
