Experience in operating the Bratsk reservoir

Experience in the Operation of Hydraulic Structures and Equipment of Hydroelectric Stations


  1. 1.

    The Bratsk reservoir experience showed that the process of filling large reservoirs should be calculated with consideration of various economic factors.

  2. 2.

    For the successful development of the shore territories of reservoirs it is necessary to select the construction sites with consideration of possible occurrence of karstic and landslide processes; the construction of heavy structures requires special karst-control measures.

  3. 3.

    The regime of drawdown of the carryover storage of a reservior subsequently must be designated with consideration of experience gained in elminating the difficulties arising for all branches of the water-management complex.
