Due to economic reasons, only way for demand side management resources participation in capacity market is their participation by load serving entities, energy service companies, or retailers. To achieve the optimal participation of retailers in the capacity market, it is crucial to model the effective parameters in retailers’ behavior model and how they trade with the independent system operator and the consumers. So a novel method is proposed in this paper for modeling retailers’ behavior, considering demand side management resources availability for their participation in long term commitments. The capacity product of the retailer and its behavior are comprehensively modeled to trade in the capacity market. The competition of retailers is also considered and its effects on the profit of the retailer and consumers are analyzed. A genetic algorithm has been used to solve this problem due to its ability for solving large-scale real nonlinear Non-deterministic Polynomial-time hard (NP-hard) optimization problems.
