The short-term optimal operation model discussed in this paper uses the 2016 to 2018 daily and monthly data of Baluchaung II hydropower station to optimize power generation by minimizing water consumption effectively in order to get more revenue from optimal operation. In the first stage, run-off-river type Baluchaung II hydropower station data was applied in a mathematical model of equal micro-increment rate method for optimal hydropower generation flow distribution unit results. In the second stage, dynamic programming was used to get optimal hydropower generation unit distribution results. The resultant data indicated that optimized results can effectively guide the actual operation run of this power station. The purpose of the optimal load dispatching unit was to consider the optimal power of each unit for financial profit and numerical programming on the actual data of Baluchaung II hydropower plant to confirm that our methods are able to find good optimal solutions which satisfy the objective values of 17.75% in flow distribution units and 24.16% in load distribution units.
