In this paper, an agent-based model is proposed to improve market efficiency by using different Demand Response Programs (DRPs) in the day-ahead electricity market. To this end, both incentive-based and price-based DRPs are considered. On this basis, time of use, real time pricing, emergency demand response program, interruptible/curtailable services and critical peak pricing are investigated. The tariffs of the considered price-based programs and the amount of incentive in the incentive-based programs are optimized through the proposed model. Furthermore, a market power index, i.e., Share Weighted Average Lerner Index (SWALI) and the operation cost are used to evaluate the market efficiency and the market power. The proposed model optimizes the DRPs to improve the electricity market efficiency by using a multi-attribute decision-making approach. The results show that the market operator can mitigate the potential occurrence of market power in a power system by finding the optimal DRP.
