|USMCA Excellent Young Researcher Award for Abdul Moiz（2017-12-07）|
Mr. Abdul Moiz (1st Year Ph.D. Candidate) was awarded the ‘Excellent Young Researcher Award’ at The 16th International Symposium on New Technologies for Urban Safety of Mega Cities in Asia (USMCA2017), held in Sendai, Japan during November 26 – 28, 2017, under the umbrella of International Disaster and Risk Conference 2017 ‘World Bosai Forum’.
The presentation by Mr. Abdul Moiz was titled “Cascaded Hydropower Scheme Operation in a Geospatial Site Selection Framework” which highlighted the development of a unique and robust decision-support system for hydropower dam site selection, considering the basin topography, hydrology and optimal operation of dams in a cascade. The use of this system overcomes the challenge of considering multi-reservoirs during the site selection process, which when further integrated with distributed hydrological models revealed more efficient dam site alternatives, with a significantly lesser impact to the environment and society.
