Excerpt: MAPS is a specialized tool widely used by the electricity industry to analyze transmission issues on a regional basis. It is used to project the functioning of the generation and transmission infrastructure in great detail under different assumptions over the relatively near term (i.e., about 4 years, through 2007). Using MAPS for longer term analyses would require adding a large amount of user-specified detail about expected demand growth, new generation capacity, generation retirements, and transmission upgrades. Establishing such assumptions with the degree of detail required was not feasible within the time and budget for this study.
