The parameterized Supply Function Equilibrium (SFE) is employed for modeling the imperfect competition among GENCOs in which proportionate parameterization of the sole and the intercept is used. A pay-as-LMP pricing mechanism is assumed for settling the market and calculating the GENCOsâ€™ profits. The fuzzy approach is utilized for modeling the uncertainty of load forecast and the result is compared with probabilistic approach. A nine GENCOs test system is used to show the efficiency of the proposed method.]]>Amjady, N. and M. Hemmati,2006Arroyo, J.M. and A.J. Conejo,2000Baldick, R.,2002Chouchman, P.B. Kouvaritakis, M.
