Abstract
The Scania-HBV model has been used for modeling hydropower generation of California, USA. California is a state with considerable meteorological and hydrological diversity, meanwhile with a total capacity of 14116 MW of 386 hydroelectricity generation units with capacity larger than 0.1 MW, California is the USA’s second largest state on hydropower. For such a giant hydropower state, prediction of hydropower generation could yield big profit in the energy market, and the well developed Scania-HBV makes this prediction possible. However, as a conceptual model, Scania-HBV has to be adapted for individual situation, and thus model calibration and validation are compulsory for a reliable prediction.

However, as a conceptual model, Scania-HBV has to be adapted for individual situation, and thus model calibration and validation are compulsory for a reliable prediction. Meteorological and hydrological data together with generation data from 1981 to 2006 were collected, and used for calibration and validation of the model. The state was divided into three sub-regions that were modeled individually. (Less)
