Non linear discriminant based on mixture of distributions: an application in return time of heterogeneous maximum flows observed in the Paranapanema river basin-Brazil
Keywords:MGEV, Discriminant Analysis, Flows, Return Period
In this work, maximum flows observed in the Paranapanema river basin are modeled by a mixture of two GEV distributions whose components correspond to the summer and winter subpopulations. The nonlinear discriminant function allowed to confirm the assumption of mixture model.The proposed model is then used to determine probabilities of exceedance and return periods associated with extreme flows, which are of fundamental importance for hydraulic projects. The results show significant differences when a mixture model is used and therefore an approach more coherent with the observed data.
