    Unilateral Market Power; Evidences from Iran Wholesale Electricity Market

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rahmati, Mohammad Amin (Author) ; Fatemi Ardestani, Farshad (Supervisor)
    In the early 21st century, Iran established its wholesale electricity market as part of the restructuring of the power industry. Currently, the majority of electricity trades occur in this market. The simultaneous production and consumption of electricity, along with constraints for new companies to enter the market, make exercising market power a significant consideration in the economics literature. The market mechanism is based on auctions and is supported by a rich-data environment that allows for monitoring of production firms' behavior. This research measures the exercise of unilateral market power in Iran's wholesale electricity market using three months' worth of data for each year... 

    An approach to optimal dispatch of bilateral electricity contracts regarding voltage stability

    This paper proposes a methodology for optimal dispatch of bilateral electricity contracts, which may endanger the system voltage stability in light of short-term operational planning of a deregulated power system. In this framework the value that each owner of a transaction is willing to pay will reflect how much the electricity contract is important to be implemented physically. The proposed model dispatches optimally the bilateral transactions regarding the prices offered by owners of bilateral contracts for reactive power and transmission capacity utilization in one hand and, the total operational costs of reactive power resources in the other hand. The model also includes the limits... 

    Energy Storage Planning from the Viewpoint of the Electricity Retailer in the Presence of Demand Response Programs

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ezzati abdoljabbar, Behzad (Author) ; Ehsan, Mehdi (Supervisor)
    Electricity has been known as one of the humans’ essential needs. The emergence of a competitive environment in most aspects of humans life and its considerable impact on the economic system in recent years has promoted this idea that the electricity should be traded as a commodity. In this business, the competition has been based on the convenient access for subscribers, and the exclusive electricity environment has became a competitive environment. Therefore, new roles have emerged. These roles take place in the direction of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy with the aim of improving them. Retailer is one of the emerged roles for restructuring in the field of...
