The basic principle of the auction is to pay the winning bidder the price the auctioneer would have had paid if the winner had not taken part.

A) In the case of using a bid function which is increasing in marginal costs, the generator with the lowest cost is always selected to serve the whole demand as long as his production capacity is not fully used. Only if demand is greater, the generator with higher costs is allowed to produce the remaining quantity. No other allocation of the right to produce power leads to a lower cost. If demand is greater than or equal to the whole production capacity of both generators and the bids of both bidders are accepted by the auctioneer, the order of acceptance of the generators does not matter because both are needed with their entire capacity.

Ci denotes the costs of generator i to produce one unit. It is the realization of the stochastic information variable Ci , i = 1, 2. 6. Marginal costs are private information of the generator. Competition between generators of the same power plant type is of interest because they are the strongest competitors due to their comparable costs. These generators face similar fixed costs, run-up costs and marginal costs. Fixed costs must be covered by the contribution margin of the entire production.
