Presently in the Nordic day-ahead market, zonal pricing or market splitting is used for relieving congestion between a predetermined set of price areas. Constraints internal to the price areas are resolved by counter trading or redispatching in the regulation market. In a model of the Nordic electricity market we consider an hourly case from winter 2010 and present analyses of the effects of different congestion management methods on prices, quantities, surpluses and network utilization. We also study the effects of two different ways of taking into account security constraints.
