Available transfer capability (ATC) is a key index of the remaining capability of a transmission system for future transactions. To calculate the ATC between two areas in an interconnected power system, capacity benefit margin (CBM) is one of the indexes that need to be assessed. CBM ensures security of system operation when the system faces generation deficiency in some areas. In this paper, three new methods are introduced which reflect different objectives for CBM assessment. This provides more flexibility of choices for market participants. In the proposed methods, CBM determination is formulated as an optimization problem and particle swarm optimization (PSO) method is used to solve the problem. The numerical results for modified IEEE reliability test system are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
