“This paper explores the technical and economic issues of determining reactive power pricing structures in open access environment. Firstly, this paper discusses the characteristics of reactive power that must be considered in order to develop a framework for reactive power pricing management. Among several cost allocation methods for valuing reactive power, two workable reactive power-pricing structures are also proposed. The first is based on performance standards and second is based on the local reactive power market. Secondly, this paper describes a method to develop a Reactive Management program. Also included is a description of a system using this philosophy that performed efficiently during an extreme operating condition”--Abstract, page iii.
