    Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP), a complex problem that is vital to ensure the proper functioning of restructured electricity markets, is clouded by uncertainties. Timely and cost-effective transmission expansion is necessary for providing secure and reliable electricity service to customers, enhancing competition, and ensuring market efficiency in electricity markets. Given the irreversibil... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2633 KB)

    The problem of whether, where, when, and what types of transmission facilities to build in terms of minimizing costs and maximizing net economic benefits has been a challenge for the power industry from the beginning-ever since Thomas Edison debated whether to create longer dc distribution lines (with their high losses) or build new power stations in expanding his urban markets. Today?s planning d... View full abstract»

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) study "The Future of the Electric Grid," published in December 2011, examined challenges for power systems and concluded with a number of findings and recommendations. The study carefully separated recommendations for transmission from those meant for distribution. Transmission analysis focused on the lack of comprehensive planning at interconnected ...

    Transmission system expansion boomed in several South American countries in the 2000s and the early 2010s. Network capacity additions were required to cope with fast-growing electricity demand, prompted by average gross domestic product growth rates of around 5% per year in 2003?2008 and 3% per year in 2008-2013. Following a trend verified in most infrastructure segments, private sector participat... View full abstract»

    In July 2011, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued Order 1000, which instituted a competitive process for the construction of transmission facilities in the United States. Heretofore, transmission projects were identified by the regional planning entity or the transmission owner via a regional or local planning process and built by the incumbent owner, with costs allocated via ex...

    The China Southern Power Grid LTD (CSG) is a unique power system, featuring long-distance, largecapacity transmission by extra-high-voltage (EH V)/ultra HV (UH V) parallel ac and dc. Half of the load is located in the Pearl River Delta of Guangdong province in the east, while 90% of the primary energy resources are concentrated in Yunnan and Guizhou provinces in the west. CSG has 16 transmission l... View full abstract»

    The European Union needs to decarbonize its energy generation to reach its goals of climate change mitigation and energy security policies. In 2011, the European Commission published a road map to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) by at least 80% by 2050. The road map foresees five pathways, and, across all of them, renewable energy generation plays a significantly stronger role today. The deployment ... View full abstract»

    Much has been published over the past century concerning the large, for their time, U.S. and Canadian 25-Hz hydroelectric stations in the vicinity of Niagara Falls. However, little has been published about the very first Canadian hydroelectric station at the falls and how it became involved in an early ac international connection between the United States and Canada.
