Methodology of systems analysis has received wide practical application as widespread universal methodology of scientific researches. Its effectiveness is shown in both researches and elaboration of complex objects with large number of connections between structural components, and in process of student learning, especially in higher education system. Features of use of basic principles of system analysis for decision of problems of modeling of objects of power engineering, in particular their representation in disciplines of electric specialties are considered. Examples of definition of categories of systems theory (super system, system, subsystem, element, process) which improve students' understanding of essence of modeling in electro energetic are represented. Importance of consideration of relationships between components of system model, possibility of change of efficiency of functioning of system, and even its functions, when change both components of system and relationships between them are explained. Definition of components of model of type “black box” and sequence of complication of structural model are considered on example of system “Power engineering”. Possible variants of structural models at steps of detailing, their dependence on purpose of research or discipline studied by students are shown.
