Keywords: State estimation, parameter estimation, Nordic hydrological model, run-off prediction, hydroelectric power production

Abstract: Parameter and state estimation algorithms have been applied to a hydrological model of a catchment area in southern Norway to yield improved control of the household of water resources and better economy and efficiency in the running of the power station, as experience proves since the system was installed on-line in the summer of 1978.
