Abstract: With reforms, the Chinese power grid is transitioning to a more dynamic and competitive power market. Transmission and distribution tariff policies have changed the profit model and influence the financial capacity of the Chinese power-grid companies. This study analyzes the specific content of the reform, the calculation related to each component of power-grid financial capacity, and the interaction and feedback characteristics among the components. On this foundation, we establish a financial capacity model using the system dynamics theory. Taking a power-grid company as a case to undertake empirical and sensitivity analyses, we put forward management strategies and policy recommendations.
