Transmission Planning

Electricity delivery infrastructure is critical for ensuring reliable electricity service to homes and businesses. Planning and operating this infrastructure is complicated by a variety of technical and institutional factors. This topic of research is focused on the review and analysis of topical issues affecting transmission planning, such as congestion cost measurement practices, transmission benefits that are not or are difficult to capture in traditional cost-benefit analysis, and assessments of the benefits of ISO/RTO formation.
