The model of water-supply networks is optimized by improved hybrid genetic algorithms in pursuit of the state of lowest energy expenses under the restricted conditions of 24 hours' forecasting for water consumption, the set of the pump stations, the first and final levels of reservoirs, electricity charges and hydraulic conditions of the networks. Meanwhile, the optimal scheduling of the pumps in periodic operation is also obtained in this paper. And the validity of that algorithm is verified fully in following field simulation.
