Based on the analysis of features inherent in any complex system, including modern energy systems, this study argues for the necessity of adopting hierarchical principles of modeling of such systems when solving the tasks of substantiating their development and the way their operation is controlled. The study also provides a concise overview of general methodological research contributions that further the development of the technology behind hierarchical modeling of complex systems.
