    In open generation market, the utility prefers to introduce IPPs rather than building new generators by itself if the participation of IPPs can maximize its profits. At the same time, the IPPs also want to maximize their own profits and bid against each other for participating in generation market. This paper discusses the bidding conditions of IpPs based on their scenario analyses, and proposes a solution method for the utility to obtain the optimal generation expansion planning while considering the profits of IPPs from the viewpoint of an utility. The supply reliability and the environmental problem (CO 2 emission) are considered in this paper. Based on a Dynamic Programming (DP) approach, the feasibility of the proposed approach is demonstrated in a test power system, and an optimal generation expansion planning of utility in consideration of impact of IPPs is obtained.
