This article proposes a transmission pricing method that integrates the
transmission loss component with the distribution factors enhanced transmission pricing
method for the pool electricity market. Two new schemes are proposed: (1) New Scheme
1—the losses are allocated only for the locational charges and (2) New Scheme 2—the
losses are allocated for both locational and non-locational charges. Both methods use
justified distribution factors to evaluate the transmission line flows more accurately. The
transmission losses are allocated among the market users by integrating the generalized
generation justified distribution factors and generalized load justified distribution factors
with the modified pro-rata method. The proposed approach is tested on the 10-machine
IEEE 39-bus (New England) system to prove its effectiveness. Results show that the
proposed method is able to reconcile transmission service cost fairly.
OBJECTIVES : In 2010, South Africa reported an early mother-to child transmission (MTCT) rate of 3.5% at 4–8 weeks postpartum. Provincial early MTCT rates ranged from 1.4% [95% confidence interval (CI): 0.1 to 3.4] to 5.9% ...
