Synopsis:

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the emerging issues and problems associated with decentralization and liberalization of energy markets. These are two main groups of issues: how to address economic issues within interconnected markets and how to address economic issues within a decentralized market. In the course, students will learn how to connect technical calculations with the determination of economic variables - especially prices. Key issues are supply zones, transit payments, loss-sharing, re-dispatch. It is also about dividing costs between customers, setting tariffs for electricity, dividing effects from decentralized production and more. Within the subject, the students will replicate the calculations and procedures that are currently delivered within the interconnected electricity system. The aim is to analyze and identify the strengths and weaknesses of these processes.
