Renewable generation technologies are expected to reach large penetration levels in a number of electric power systems. These technologies are changing the plant scheduling of the rest of the generating facilities and as a result, operation-related issues become more important for an adequate analysis of generation expansion problems. A generation expansion equilibrium model which introduces start-ups and shut-downs under an oligopolistic market representation has been developed. A new approach to solve the equilibrium problem via an equivalent optimization problem has been used.
