Abstract

For the last few decades, the power sector has been restructuring throughout the world, and because of this, congestion is bound to take place in the network. Congestion can lead to market failure, violate transmission capability limits and high electricity prices, and end up threatening the power systems’ reliability and security. Increased congestion may also lead to unexpected price differences in power markets leading to market power. In a deregulated power market (DPM), the independent system operator (ISO)’s fundamental challenge is to preserve the power market’s reliability and safety by improving market efficiency when the network is congested. Therefore, congestion management (CM) is essential in DPM and is the key to the power system. This paper carries out a congestion management methods survey to bring together all recent publications in the DPM. It aims to help readers summarize progressive CM methods, along with traditional CM methods that have been discussed so far. In this paper, we have carried out a comparative survey of the various well-known CM methods.

Numerous recent publications have compared different cultivars of broccoli and different cultivation conditions suggesting that great variations in the content of phytochemicals among cultivars are due to genetic, and many environmental factors. The purpose of the present work was the quantification of glucosinolates, phenolic compounds, carotenoids, and antioxidant capacity in the florescences of 13 genotypes from freshly harvested broccoli grown under uniform agroecological practices. The present results showed a significant variation in the level of bioactive compounds and consequently potential health benefits of broccoli (total glucosinolates 12.04–22.48 μmol g−1 d.w., the total phenolic content 15.54–26.92 mg g−1 d.w., total carotenoid content 0.19 mg g−1–0.46 mg g−1 d.w.). Studied cultivars were different in the level of the individual bioactive compounds, although some cultivars had higher content of all three analysed bioactive compounds such as Marathon, Ironman and General cultivar. In addition, these three cultivars showed excellent marketable properties and we choose them for the further breeding program in order to study variation among bioactive compounds in more details.
