Generation and Transmission planning
One of the main aims of electric power industry liberalization is the attraction of investment for new more effective generation and transmission development. The objective estimation of needed investment can be made on the basis of new advanced procedures of generation and transmission expansion planning in a market environment.Generation planning
PML provides the load forecast (5 years or 10 years).Based on the load forecast, PML would make a study on how much generation capacity will be needed each year, where these generation plants should be located, how many transmissions corridors would be needed to transmit the power to the loadTransmission planning
Transmission planning is the process of identifying areas of the current transmission grid that are in need of expansion to cost-effectively maintain reliability and accommodate new generation and/or growing load.
