We analyze the fundamental differences between locational pricing and redispatch-based congestion management, followed by an assessment of their effects on grid operation and market efficiency. It is indicated that although optimal nodal pricing and congestion redispatch can provide equal results in terms of power injections, they are not equivalent in terms of short-run social welfare. Moreover, a modeling framework is presented to decouple and analyze the effects of transmission system operator/regulator and prosumer behavior on energy market efficiency in a transparent fashion. All results are illustrated on the basis of case studies for the IEEE 39-bus New England test network.
