Abstract

Congestion pricing is an important source of pricing variability in wholesale electricity markets, and its behavior is often highly volatile.  Though Day-Ahead prices for energy are calculated with the best available data, they often misestimate the costs in real time, and result in risk for market participants.  This project will build a database to facilitate future market research using MATLAB software, and build a variety of analysis tools in order to examine the behavior of congestion spread pricing.
