As part of this system, the installations necessary to deliver electricity from a generation plant to a Bar of the Main Transmission System can be mentioned.

Guaranteed Transmission System

It is the set of transmission assets or facilities that are built as a result of the Transmission Plan, whose concession and construction are the result of a public bidding process.

Complementary Transmission System

It is the set of transmission assets or installations that do not make up the Guaranteed Transmission System, but which are part of the Transmission Plan, and whose construction is the result of the initiative of one or several agents.
