In a deregulated electricity market, when congestion occurs in a transmission line it violates system security and increase system cost. Transmission lines congestion is one of the technical problems which appear particularly in the deregulated environment. In a deregulated era, one of the important tasks of ISO is congestion free power system. Generator rescheduling is one of the techniques adopted by ISO to mitigate transmission congestion in a deregulated electricity market. Present paper proposed A Bacteria Foraging Algorithm based generator rescheduling for congestion management problem. The BFA is a new metaheuristic approach inspired by intelligent foraging behaviour of optimization is used for generators. The proposed algorithm is applied on IEEE 30 Bus System.
