Abstract This paper addresses the problem of designing an optimal micro-hydro\n power installation in rivers with generic profiles, when micro-hydro\n schemes are studied. This is geared towards the application of Micro\n Hydro Power Plants to supply marginal isolated areas using small Pelton\n wheels, where both technology and resources are limited. For this\n purpose, a model of a Pelton micro-hydro plant is first developed.\n Subsequently, a discretization of the river profile is made, on the\n basis of which a set of integer variables are proposed, being the model\n transformed then into an integer optimization problem. Finally, the\n effectiveness of the proposed method is showed through a specific design\n problem. The application of the developed method is especially\n interesting when designing micro-hydro plants to provide electricity to\n isolated populations, where both technology and resources are limited.\n (C) 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
