A grouping approach may ease the process of supply prediction. It is shown that trend of the streams in the same basins have similar trend and it is also important to analyse that whether there are similarity between the trend of the neighbour basins or not. It is seen in the experiments that structure based hierarchical clustering makes the clus- tering based on the trend of the time series and this method reveals the connections between the basins which have similar trends in the flow of their streams. The aim of this thesis is to find the basin based clustering of the hydroelectric power plants and stream-flow and hydroelectric energy production datasets are used and the results of both are compared with each other. In conclusion, it is shown that basin based clustering is done successfully by use of structure based hierarchical clustering on the stream-flow dataset and the result is visualized on the Turkey map.
