The Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) at NICA collider has a substantial discovery potential concerning
the exploration of the QCD phase diagram in the region of high net-baryon densities and moderate temperatures.
The anisotropic transverse flow is one of the key observables to study the properties of dense
matter created in heavy-ion collisions. The MPD performance for anisotropic flow measurements is
studied with Monte-Carlo simulations of gold ions at NICA energies $\sqrt {{S_{NN}}} = 4 - 11 GeV
using different heavy-ion event generators. Different combinations of the MPD detector subsystems
are used to investigate the possible systematic biases in flow measurements, and to study effects
of detector azimuthal non-uniformity. The resulting performance of the MPD for flow measurements is
demonstrated for the directed and elliptic flow of identified charged hadrons as a function
of rapidity and transverse momentum in different centrality classes.
