Determination of Transmission and Distribution Charges
#1
Dear All, 

A slightly off topic question. 

TIMES is a generation system planning model but transmission and distribution are also the part of power system so my question is what is a good way to allocated transmission and distribution cost in the power system using TIMES?

Option a: allocating capex and O&M cost for transmission asset similar to a generation asset? But the problem with this transmission of power is dependent on distance? Is there any place where I can find global reference cost of Capex and O&M in per MW terms 

Option B: Allocating a per unit cost for transmission and distribution of each unit of electricity?

Which one is a better option to be used in TIMES based power system model?

Regards
Vinay
