The problem of finding the optimal power spectrum of nuclear reactors for the projecting power system for the whole country is presented. It considers a large contribution of NPP and formalized in the form of a multicriteria optimization problem. Potential damage reduction from various risk factors and construction costs at maximum power generation is estimated. The genetic algorithm is proposed as solver algorithm. Recommendations are given for optimizing the power range of reactor plants on the basis of the performed calculations and reduce the overall risks of NPP operation during strategic planning
