In this paper, we study the behavior of power suppliers who submit their bids to the market place in order to maximize their payoffs. The market clearing mechanism is based on the locational marginal price. To study the interaction of the power suppliers, we rely on two different approaches and compare the results obtained. One approach consists of(More)
This paper proposes a decentralized approach for the management of distribution systems including dispersed generation. The methodology is zonal approach and multi-agent systems based. The study presented compares centralized and decentralized methods and draws conclusions about the advantages and drawbacks of each.
Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) devices play a vital role in improving the static as well as dynamic performance of the power system. The location and size of these devices play a major role in deciding the extent to which the goal of improving the system performance is achieved in a cost effective manner. In this work, an objective function(More)
Improving of Available Transfer Capability (ATC) is an important issue in the current de-regulated environment of power systems. Power transactions between a specific seller bus/area and a buyer bus/area can be committed only when sufficient ATC is available. It is well known that Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) technology can control voltage(More)
