Evaluation of the Agricultural Planejamentos for the Subsystem Catolé II and Po o Redondo in the Semi-árido Nordestino
Allan Sarmento Vieira,Valterlin da Silva Santos,Wilson Fadlo Curi
Engenharia Ambiental : Pesquisa e Tecnologia , 2010,
Abstract: To guarantee the reservoirs water use efficiency, because of hydrological uncertainties, has become a great concern for the water resources planning and management in recent years, due to increasing water demands for several uses and environmental degradation, which diminishes the water availability. The objective of this work is to analyze and to compare the performance 2 scenes of agricultural planning for the system of reservoirs Catolé II and Po o Redondo, in the Piancó’s river basin, located in the semiarid region of Paraíba state, through the combination of the optimization and simulation models, both based on sequential linear programming. Each model gets, respectively, from the dry scenario, the performance indicators (reliability, resilience and vulnerability) and the settings for an Optimal Agricultural Planning (POA) of the system, which is compared with the Agricultural Planning proposed by the State Water Resources Policies for the Piancó’s basin river (PAPD). The results showed that PAPD estimated irrigation water demand is not sustainable to attend during years of drought, failing up to 3 consecutive months, in which the attendance was 20% of the required demand. There were no failing events for the fulfillment of POA estimated irrigated water demand due the reduction of 11,5 % of the plantation area.
Choice of the Rules of Rational operation for Subsystem of Reservoirs in the Semi-árido Nordestino

Engenharia Ambiental : Pesquisa e Tecnologia , 2010,
Abstract: In the northeastern Brazil great part of the reservoirs presents great taxes of evaporation, high shed outflows and me the quality of its waters. This occurs, in the majority of the cases, had to the favorable climatic situations, due to a rational planning or, even though, for the bad sizing of the water structures. Based in this context, the objective of this research is to choose and to analyze the efficiency of four rules for operation of the reservoirs Engenheiro ávidos and S o Gon alo, considering or not it happened outflow of the river San Francisco. The operation rules, had been evaluated way the application of a simulation model, that uses techniques of sequential programming linear, that they minimize the losses for evaporation and vertimento and maximize the satisfaction of attendance of the demands. The results had demonstrated that the operation rule more efficiency for the system was with the volume the equal goal 75% of the capacity of the reservoirs, disclosing that the reservoirs look for to store water of the period of rain. Considering the happened outflow of the transposition of the River San Francisco, we can conclude that the adjusted rules of operation more, had been those that had presented the biggest synergetic profits

Engenharia Ambiental : Pesquisa e Tecnologia , 2008,
Abstract: Sustainability has been considered an indispensable requisite for the preservation of life on our planet with dignity for future generations. Thus, sustainability has become the main objective of several organs and institutions which deal with natural resources. So, this research project had as its objective the development of a decision support system facilitate decision-making in relation to the management of water resources, which can be allocated for several uses: human and industrial consumption, and irrigation. The model of this project involved two reservoirs called A ude Epitácio Pessoa (Boqueir o) and A ude Argemiro Figueiredo (Acau ) and each one has an irrigated perimeter, consultative use of water and the need for regular drainage. According to the results obtained, it was concluded that the software developed serves for any water system which has one or more reservoirs and one or more irrigated perimeters which can allocate excellent areas for several types of irrigated cultivars, aside from performing reservoir flow management.

Engenharia Ambiental : Pesquisa e Tecnologia , 2009,
Abstract: The substitution of fossil fuels by biofuels is being stimulated by governments because of the perspective of exhaustion of world oil reserves, in consequence of constant price rising and also because of environmental impacts. It is based on this perspective that this research work was realized, aiming to develop a search of information related to it, mainly exposing environmental, economical and social impacts of fossil fuels and biofuels that naturally are the substitutes of these. Through the research developed, it was noticed that there are many convergent information related to the positive side of substituting oil by biofuels, as also was detected a set of researches that show adverse information. These researches alert to a set of problems that must be solved before a total substitution aiming sustainability, such as: familiar agriculture incentive; delimitation of properties’ size; formation of cooperatives; creation of a national network of thousands of micro-plants integrated by cooperatives of small and medium rural producers; and so on.

Implicit Stochastic Optimization for deriving reservoir operating rules in semiarid Brazil
Celeste, Alcigeimes B.;Curi, Wilson F.;Curi, Rosires C.;
Pesquisa Operacional , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-74382009000100011
Abstract: this paper deals with the application of implicit stochastic optimization (iso) to determine monthly operating rules for a reservoir system located in the semiarid northeast of brazil. iso employs a deterministic optimization model to find optimal reservoir allocations under several possible inflow scenarios and later constructs the rules by analyzing the ensemble of these optimal releases. the operating policies provide the monthly reservoir release conditioned on the storage at the beginning of the month and the inflow predicted for the month. in addition to the classical regression analysis, this study establishes the rules by a two-dimensional interpolation strategy. after the rules are identified, they are applied to operate the system under new inflow realizations and show ability to produce policies similar to those obtained by deterministic optimization taking the same inflows as perfect forecasts.
