 +**Abstract:** The National Electricity Market (NEM) commenced operation on 13 December 1998, as part of the process of deregulation of the Australian power industry. Today, the NEM supplies electricity to 7.7 million Australian customers on an interconnected national grid that runs through Queensland, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria and South Australia. The responsibility of operating the market and the power system lies with The National Electricity Market Management Company (NEMMCO). One of NEMMCO's key functions is the dispatch of scheduled generation and demand in such a fashion that the value of trade in the market is maximised.
 +
 +In certain circumstances however network congestion may prevent the electricity from being dispatched in this optimal fashion.  This presentation will address the manner in which the physical structure of the Australian transmission system combining with the regional pricing arrangements in the market can place limitations on the transfer of electricity between different parts of the network.  These restrictions on the delivery of power or "network flow constraints" can have a significant impact upon both the pricing and dispatch outcomes of the National Electricity Market.
