Service Quality Regulation in Electricity Distribution Necmiddin BAĞDADİOĞLU Orçun SENYÜCEL
Objectives Incorporate service quality measure into electricity regulation. New in literature : Growitsch et al (2008), Coelli et al (2008-Draft) Determine technical efficiency of Turkish electricity distribution utilities Focus on exogeneous determinants of inefficiency Analyze effects of electricity losses and illegal usage on TE.
Turkish Electricity Reform Electricity Sector Reform and Privatization Strategy Paper (2004): TEDAS 2012 Transitory period: 20 utilites through mergers of 79 distribution utilities. ESRPSP: mergers determined by operational problems, technical & financial features. Turkey accession country. EU Energy Acquis EMRA has not announced regulatory framework
Briefly SFA v DEA Average Cost (all noise) Syrjanen, M., P. Bogetoft, P. Agrell (2006)
Briefly SFA v DEA Deterministic frontier (all ineff u) Syrjanen, M., P. Bogetoft, P. Agrell (2006)
Briefly SFA v DEA Stochastic frontier (both noise v and ineff u) Syrjanen, M., P. Bogetoft, P. Agrell (2006)
Briefly SFA Two component error terms, first captures statistical noise Second captures effects of TE. Half normal, exponential, truncated dist.
Distance Functions DF: Distance of the prod to PPB Two different types: input & output DF Input DF: How much input vector can be contracted (output constant) Output: Vice versa.
Distance Functions x y L(y) xoxo x/λ y0y0 Kumbhakar & Lovell (2003)
Distance Functions Deviations from 1 is technical inefficiency h(.) represents deviation exp (-u) exp (-u) one of the component error terms.
Distance Functions Adding random error term, imposing homogeneity rest. We preffered translog input DF.
Methodology Following Coelli, (M outputs K inputs)
Methodology Following Coelli and Battese, Two environmental variables
Models Model I: Input: TOTEX+L&IEU (TOTEXL) Model II: Input: + Interruption Time (ITC) Output: Energy supplied (ENG) and number of customers (CUST) Environmental factors: Village Cust Density (VCD) Geographic Conditions (GEO)
Descriptive Statistics VariableObsMeanStd. Dev.MinMax TOTEXL (million TL) Energy Supplied (GWh) Number of customers (000) ITC VCD

Conclusion QoS impact on TE. GEO & VCD are crucial environmental variables. Excl. losses and illegal electricity usage overestimates TE. Privatization: Eight utilities are established far from the optimal size and have low average efficiency scores (0.43). TPA may merge other six utilities.
