Paper deals with the problem of long-term control of Hydro Power System. Actually, this is the problem of optimization of the regimes of Hydro Power Plants (HPP) with reservoirs, aiming to achieve the maximal economic effect. The problem is dynamic with traditional constraints. The model is based on the method of Markov decision process. The matrices of transition probabilities and the corresponding recurrent inequalities are composed. One practical idea is also suggested to avoid the dimension problem in the case of a large number of HPPs.
