This paper proposes a practical method for identifying wheeling paths in deregulated electricity markets based on an extended sensitivity analysis. Using this method, it becomes possible to decide the proper and fair wheeling rate according to the degree of burden on transmission lines by each power flow transaction. Moreover, a wheeling rate based on the real power flow burden is also an important signal to new power suppliers in the markets. In order to show the validity of the proposed method, a series of simulations on the IEEE 30-bus test system were conducted. Crown
