A simplified financial transmission rights auction in the context of the New Zealand electricity grid

Geoffrey Pritchard, Winston LeMay Sweatman, Ghazaleh Mohammadian, Philip Kilby


This article considers the use of financial transmission rights for managing electricity provision on a power grid. The use of a sub-grid of hubs for dealing in these products is explored. Some suitable approaches to this practice are outlined. These identify the feasible size of sub-grid and locate additional constraints.
