Congestion management is one of the major tasks performed by system operators (SOs) to ensure the operation of transmission system within operating limits. To permit smooth and quality flow of power the problem of congestion has to be solved. The congestion in the transmission line will be removed by generation rescheduling with the cost involved in the rescheduling process should be minimized. T he literature, classical optimization techniques were applied to solve this problem. The main drawbacks of the classical optimization techniques are higher computation time requirement, non-differentiable characteristics of objective function and inferior quality of solutions.
