Influence of distributed generation on congestion and LMP in competitive electricity market

  title={Influence of distributed generation on congestion and LMP in competitive electricity market},
  author={Durga P. Gautam and Mithulananthan Nadarajah},
  journal={World academy of science, engineering and technology},
This paper presents the influence of distributed generation (DG) on congestion and locational marginal price (LMP) in an optimal power flow (OPF) based wholesale electricity market. The problem of optimal placement to manage congestion and reduce LMP is formulated for the objective of social welfare maximization. From competitive electricity market standpoint, DGs have great value when they reduce load in particular locations and at particular times when feeders are heavily loaded. The paper… Expand
