The paper discusses the trends, features, and current problems of the operation of hydro power plants in the interconnected power system (IPS) of Siberia. The main feature of the IPS of Siberia is a high proportion of hydro power plants and, as a result, a strong dependence of power generation on the natural fluctuations of water inflows into reservoirs. The problems affecting the power system efficiency arise when the inflows deviate from normal and close-to-normal values. The study indicates the need to improve the current system of managing and planning the operation of hydro power plants. The important factor that can increase the efficiency and reliability of the power system operation is bringing the permissible ranges of variations in reservoir levels in compliance with the design values. Planning the long-term power balances and increasing their validity should involve predictive scenarios of water inflows into reservoirs.
