An operational and institutional modular analysis framework of Transmission and System Operator Why Transmission and System Operators are not ideal ones

Abstract : Transmission and System Operator (TSO) is the power flows externality market designer. And so, not only is TSO a module of power markets but its missions that are related to the management of power flows can also be studied thanks to a modular analysis. An ideal first-best TSO can then emerge as a benchmark for comparison with real TSOs. The governance structure of TSO accounts for the gap between such an ideal first-best and real TSOs. Then, although the economic theory specifies a unique arrangement to reach efficiency, the diversity of transmission governance accounts for the diversity of arrangements to manage power flows. Moreover the comparison between an ideal first-best TSO and two reference TSOs, PJM and NGC, with quite opposite features accounts for heterogeneous results among TSOs.
