Review of Congestion Management Methods from Conventional to Smart Grid Scenario

  • Srinivasulu Gumpu EMAIL logo , Balakrishna Pamulaparthy and Ankush Sharma


Congestion in the power system network is a threat to security, reliability, and economy of the power industry. Congestion management in deregulated power markets has become one of the significant tasks of system operators to address congestion in the transmission network. Many methods have been presented in literature with the aim of congestion management, improvement of the security and efficiency of the deregulated power market in the past few decades. This review paper explains various approaches/methods of congestion management in past few years and provides a comprehensive overview of congestion management methods. A comparative study was done among the different well known CM methods in this work. These methods were tested and analysed on modified 6-bus system, modified IEEE 14-bus system, and modified IEEE 30-bus system.
