Transmission impacts and visualization of new generation

With deregulation in the electric industry the process of siting new generation has changed dramatically. In the previous vertically integrated utility paradigm, the local utility could bundle the cost of new transmission with the costs associated with adding generation. With deregulation independent generators usually wish to site at locations in which their new generation will not cause any new overloads in the transmission grid. This paper describes a process for systematically determining the impact new generation will have on the transmission system. Emphasis is also placed on the visualization of these transmission system impacts.
