This thesis examines three classical network pricing approaches: the Postage Stamp (PS), the MegaWatt Mile (MWM), and the Flow-Based (FB) methods. These are simple to implement but suffer from drawbacks such as potential negative generator profits. This thesis further examines a new type of network pricing introduced by the author that is based on the notion of network and generator disincentives. Finally, a numerical study is made to compare the advantages and disadvantages of all the aforementioned methods.
