Oligopolistic Competition in the Japanese Wholesale Electricity Market: A Linear Complementarity Approach

Abstract

Using a linear complementarity approach, we simulate the Japanese wholesale electricity market as a transmission-constrained Cournot market. Following Hobbs (2001), our model adopts the Cournot assumption in the energy market and the Bertrand assumption in the transmission market. The Bertrand assumption means that generators consider transmission charges… (More)
