Relevance. To ensure the safety of hydraulic and hydropower facilities, to organize constant monitoring of their condition, including the installation of additional control and measuring equipment is required. It is also necessary to introduce modern information and diagnostic systems that allow in real time to assess the state of both individual elements of the structure, as well as mutually influencing structures and complexes of structures. At the same time, the results presented in the article are aimed for describing the fundamental structure a new generation of information and diagnostic system building, developed within the framework of a software and hardware complex. The aims of the work. The main purpose of the proposed system is to increase the level of monitoring to ensure the safety of hydraulic structures, which have a possible impact on each other during operation and construction. The tasks of creating a unified platform for assessing the safe state of hydraulic structures during the construction and operation of hydraulic structures (hydroelectric and pumped-storage power plants) are being solved, the foundations of a unified information-diagnostic system on a modular basis are laid, which allows comparing monitoring and measuring equipment readings, statistical samples and calculated values obtained within the mathematical modeling objects. Methods. The paper presents the structure of the interaction of individual blocks included in the information-diagnostic system, the interaction of the information-diagnostic system with the user for decision-making during the operation of the hydraulic structures. Results. A modular shell has been implemented, consisting of a combined information-diagnostic system, expert and calculation modules, which allows a comprehensive approach to the issue of safety of mutually affecting hydraulic structures. Software links have been developed to assess the change in parameters that can lead to deviations/irregularities in the operation of the hydraulic structures.
