In deregulated systems, bidding plays an important role for Gencos participating with the objective of maximizing profit. While making bidding strategies, factors like unit constraint and price uncertainty need to be considered as they have direct impact on the expected profit. The goal of the partnership units of solution is based on the price. By solving this problem, the generation company to determine the optimal generation schedule and unit status hourly. MCP plays an important role in the profitability of the units. In this paper, a novel approach to solving an optimal bid curve underprice uncertainty using PBUC in PAB markets is presented. Numerical results show the suitability of the method on a sample market.
