Abstract

We analyze the effects on social welfare of two different processes of transmission network expansion planning. A first model (integrated model) considers decisions on electricity generation and transmission as interdependent activities. A second model (disintegrated model) assumes that these decisions are independent, so that network expansion follows an exogenous process. This duality of approaches has been subject of academic and policy discussions in diverse systems, as it is the case of the electricity system in Germany. These two models are simulated for the transmission network in Southern Baja California, Mexico. This is a self-contained system with relatively few nodes and links that allows the development of a realistic study on the characteristics of efficient expansion of the electricity grid. We demonstrate that the integrated approach to expanding transmission networks results in higher levels of social welfare for different network topologies in this system.
