Abstract: Increasing interconnections and usage of power networks makes the system to work at almost full loading capacities. Any type of disturbance in such scenario results in congestion of the existing network. This condition, if not managed within required time may result in system collapse. This paper presents a simple and economic transmission line overload alleviation method that is very much required in day-to-day operation and control of power systems. This method of managing the congestion aims primarily at improving the voltage stability of the system while relieving the overload and does this economically to the possible extent. Relative Electrical Distances (RED) between the loads and generators is the criterion for relieving the overload in a transmission line, by rescheduling the generation. The process of rescheduling is done economically by making use of fuzzy logic considering the incremental fuel costs of the generators. This method is illustrated using IEEE 39-node New England system and a real-life system, 75-node North Indian power system.
