This book assembles current knowledge about the economics and technology of electricity transmission, the focus being on current issues that are vital to utilities, other power producers, regulators, system planners, and electricity users. It will appeal to anyone who has an interest in understanding the complexities and problems surrounding the transmission of electricity in a market that is becoming increasingly deregulated and competitive.
An assemblage of papers addressing the current state of knowledge on the economics and technology of electricity transmission. The focus is on current issues of significance to utilities, other power producers, regulators, and system planners. The 12 contributions cover topics including the gap between the theory and practice of transmission pricing; an analysis of cost recovery in the marginal pricing of transmission services; transmission access and retail wheeling; making bilateral competition work; a dispatch based pricing model for the New Zealand electricity market; transmission pricing in Norway; and the second silicon revolution.
