Abstract A new probabilistic model to simulate generation investment and risks applicable in a deregulated market is proposed. In this process, probabilistic production cost simulation is applied to simulate energy dispatches. Electricity prices are simulated from a modified Black-Scholes-Merton (BSM) based price simulation model. In this work, the existing BSM model is enhanced thus making it possible to simulate the demand and supply conditions in price determination. A complete investment analysis model is then developed by integrating the above two simulation processes. Using this model, generator investors can analyze the impacts on the anticipated revenue due to different plant efficiency, availabilities, bilateral contract markets and changes in demand and supply conditions. Simulated results show that the proposed model is able to analyse the viability in generation investment with much simplicity. Copyright ©1999-2011 Berkeley Electronic Press
