Evaluating Benefits with Independent and Cogenerated Power Production
MetadataShow full item record
New generation planning concepts must be developed which recognize an expanded list of "stakeholders", (e.g. IPP's, ·cogenerators, industrial hosts, utility shareholders and rate payers), and additional technical issues (e.g. generation dispatch, transmission, wheeling, etc.) associated with independent power generation. This paper investigates the effect of introducing "power value" concepts on regional generation planning. The effects of independent and cogenerated power generation, its capacity allocation, and the distribution of benefits will be described. The incremental sensitivity of variation in the economic parameters of a cogeneration project on the optimum power allocation will be illustrated. The illustrations and techniques described in the paper offer unique and flexible generation planning tools which can provide insight, indicate trends, and aid in establishing sensitivities for cogeneration planning and competitive guidelines in supplying energy to optimize regional benefits.
