Transmission Expansion and Renewable Integration Rationality of transmission investment under a dynamic process of renewable generation integration. Transmission investment under gradual substitution of conventional energy (e.g., coal or fuel oil) with renewables (wind, solar or geothermal energy) Diverse developments of the technological mix in the generation park that implies different network congestion scenarios 35/33 Outline 1.

Shortcomings of asymptotic analysis. In practice, other considerations beside asymptotic analysis are important when choosing between algorithms. Sometimes, an algorithm with worse asymptotic behavior is preferable. For the sake of this discussion, let algorithm A be asymptotically better than algorithm...
