Electricity market price may not always be a reference to determine the existence of market power. This paper discusses why electricity price in a day-ahead electricity market may exhibit peaks without representing market manipulation by any of the players. We use genetic algorithms to simulate the trading behavior of artificial agents in the spot market. Two case studies are reported and the results show that high market prices do not necessarily mean market power exercise.
