Pool bid generation at both A and B. To simplify, each location has the same bid curve, starting at 2¢/kWh and increasing by l¢/kWh for each 100 MW. Hence, a market price of 5 cents at A would yield 300 MW of pool-based generation at that location. Likewise for location B. • Two bilateral transaction schedules, Blue and Red, each for 100 MW from A to B. Each bilateral transaction includes a separate contract price between the generator and the customer; the ISO does not know this contract price.
In fact, in performing the economic dispatch, the ISO treats the Red transaction as just this type of bid. Under these circumstances, the price at A could drop to zero, or lower, with a corresponding increase in the opportunity cost of transmission. Furthermore, suppose that Red's true short-term generation cost is 3 cents, but it refused to make a decremental bid to the ISO. Then in the 100 MW case above, Red would have acted irrationally and would be worse off than if it offered such a decremental bid.
