"Firm-based Measurements of Market Power in Transmission-Constrained Electricity Markets," Yen-Yu Lee, Ross Baldick, and Jin Hur, IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, 26(4):1962-1970, November 2011. This paper describes two approaches to analyzing firm-based market power considering transmission constraints. One is based on the transmission-constrained residual demand Jacobian and the other is a generalization to the transmission-constrained case of the residual supply index. http://users.ece.utexas.edu/~baldick/papers/firm_index_technical.pdf (technical reference).
