A mathematical model of the equilibrium state of the new liberalized electricity market of Ukraine is proposed. The model is presented in the form of a system of nonlinear optimization problems, which adequately reflects the goals and conditions of activity of key market participants such as generating companies, transmission system operator, distribution system operators, trader, suppliers and end-users. The model establishes interrelations between such prices for electric energy in regional energy units and such volumes of production, transmission, distribution and consumption of electricity, under which the performance of each market participant is most closely related to its own purposes. The model allows you to analyze the market conditions,
achieved with different scenarios of the behavior of its participants.
