Currently, the direction associated with the study of integrated energy systems is actively developing. This direction considers various types of systems (electricity, heat, cold, gas supply, etc.) as subsystems of a single system and allows you to get advantages over traditional approaches to the study of energy systems, in which these systems are considered independently of each other. The article proposes a methodical approach to organizing a single information space for solving the problems of developing integrated energy systems in the form of a single software platform. This approach includes the following components: platform building principles; platform architecture; technologies and development tools for platform implementation; the basic structure of the library of software components, their interfaces and integration mechanisms into the platform. In the process of building a software system, it is proposed to use ontologies that are used to solve the following problems: automatic integration of software components into the AnyLogic software environment; automated construction of a software system for solving the problem of managing the development of integrated energy systems; application of the software platform in solving practical problems. In accordance with the proposed methodological approach, a software platform prototype has been implemented. The solution of the problem of development is demonstrated on the example of the scheme of an integrated energy system. The results of a computational experiment on a test circuit of an integrated energy system, which was carried out using the developed software prototype, are presented. As a result of the experiment performed on the developed multi-agent model, it was possible to form the optimal scheme of an integrated energy system for power supply to consumers, taking into account system conditions and limitations.
