Abstract: Congestion management in restructured power system is a major technical challenge for the power system engineers. For a congestion free power market , Available transfer capability(ATC) is to be enhanced. ATC is a measure of remaining MW transaction that can be carried out without violating the transmission limits. In deregulated market , change in load can be met by more than one generator of the system generator participation factor is a measure of amount of power contributed by the generator to satisfy the load. This paper proposes that in simultaneous power transaction generator participation factor can decide the ATC of the network and can also change the maximum amount of load sustained by the bus before causing congestion of the network For this coding is done in MATLB and results are verified on Power world Simulator software.
Keywords: Deregulation, congestion, Power transfer distribution factor, Available transfer capability, Generator participation factor.
