Adaptation Of System Expansion To Marginal Cost Based Rates Using A Load Simulation Model
AbstractChanges in the pricing of electrical energy in Canada to encourage a more efficient use of the country’s resources will have an impact on both electric utilities and economy in general. The purpose of this paper is to outline a framework within which these impacts can be studied and evaluated. The following points will receive consideration: (a) The reasons why the present rate structure encourages an inefficient use of resources, (b) The role of a load simulation model in the planning of system expansion, (c) The important characteristics of the load simulation model we have developed, and (d) The integration of a utility’s planning with a consistent cost/benefit evaluation of alternative pricing policies. The evaluation procedure is discussed from the points of view of both the utility and the public.
