Task of shipping operations control of the Gabčíkovo Project is to synchronize several requirements. These come from versatility of GAP and must meet with the following goals. The operation of GAP must be effective (maximization of the ship locks capacity, maximization of income from electricity production in hydropower plant); reliability of operation of the ship locks must not be limited or endangered by defects on technology parts of the ship locks caused by illegal parameters of water flow in the filling and emptying system; and shipping safety must not be endangered or limited by unsuitable parameters of river way (navigable depth below minimal shipping depths in ford sections caused by flow changes on Gabčíkovo Project and ships crushing into riverbed of the Danube river).

By taking these goals into account, it is possible, in general, to define operation of Gabčíkovo Project as complex multi-criteria optimization task with many technological, water management, energetic and environmental constrains. Standard approach in solving this problem includes elaboration of optimization or simulation model of Gabčíkovo Project operation. If mathematical description of problem does not exist, ‘classic’ expert control system management must be applied. Based on above stated criteria, most effective approach to this problem appears to be creating software application that combines both approaches.

In this case, expert control system of shipping operation on Gabčíkovo Project will be software application to model hydraulic links and hydraulic regimes (discharges, water levels and flow velocities) based on relevant inputs on the ship locks and whole section of the Danube river, that is affected by Gabčíkovo Project operation.

The paper describes possible optimization solution for achieving above mentioned goals. Architecture of proposed expert control system is described in the paper and the focus is mainly on analyzing suitability of heuristic optimization methods for solving above the stated optimization problems.
