The purpose of this project is to introduce new and efficient methods for hydroelectric studies in Bolivia through the use of mathematical modelling techniques. It is a collaboration project between Empresa Nacional de Electricidad, ENDE in Bolivia and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI in Sweden.
This report deals with the transfer of a stochastic model for simulating monthly streamflows and training in the handling of the model. The other part of the project, which is reported in Application of the HBV model to Bolivian Basins, ref (1), deals with the transfer of a conceptual model, called the HBV model. The HBV model extends daily discharge time series by using precipitation data from periods without discharge observations.
