Estimation of the maximum water flow pass-through with an exceedance probability of 0.01% through the structures of the Volga-Kama waterworks cascade is conducted, while accounting for disconnection of units and closing the spans of spillway structures. Calculations were performed with the use of dynamic curves and static curves for reservoir volumes. A comparative analysis of the obtained results was done.
