Abstract: Due to increasing power demand in a deregulated power system, the stability of the power system may get affected and sometimes it may also cause congestion in the transmission lines of power networks. It is a major issue for a deregulated power system and its management provides a competition environment to different market players. In this paper, market split based approach is used to tackle the problem of congestion which split the system into zones. Locational Marginal Pricing (LMP) method is used to access the prices at different buses. The objective is to minimize the congestion effect. DC optimal power flow based system is used to solve such type of problem. TCSC (Thyristor-Controlled Series Compensation), FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System) device is used to reduce the losses in a transmission system. Market splitting based approach is effective to manage the prices at different buses and system stability is increased by using TCSC. The whole work is carried out on IEEE 14 bus system.
