ATC (Available Transfer Capability), Deregulated Power system, DC Power Transfer Distribution Factor (DCPTDF)


Congestion is a common condition which creates considerable impact on performance of power system in deregulated environment. Information of Available Transfer Capability (ATC) helps to alleviate problem of congestion by giving power transfer capability available in the system for a particular transaction. After surveying, work presented in this paper has implemented sensitivity based approach like DCPTDF (DC Power Transfer Distribution Factor) for ATC calculation. To validate performance of these approaches, a 6-bus sample system is considered with thermal limit constraint. The DCPTDF method was found to be faster than other conventional method.
