This paper considers the modeling of a test power system with three nodes to analyze the effectiveness of using nonlinear models of thermal power plants in the study of energy security and reliability of power supply. Within the framework of the modeling, experiments were conducted using various types of generating equipment and loads, as well as calculations based on nonlinear models. The results of the simulation showed that the use of nonlinear models makes it possible to more accurately assess the level of energy security and energy supply reliability, which can be useful in planning and designing energy systems.
