In this paper, a quick, simple and precise method has been introduced for determining the static ATC, considering the real limitation of the network. It has also taken into account the limitation of the over load of all the elements, the over and lower voltage for all buses and terminals. In fact, (Minimum Distance) MD method is a kind of Continuation Power Flow (CPF) which converges to the response fast and with a few Load Flow (LF) from the distance between the operation point and desired point with approximation quadratic equation and only utilizes the LF to obtain the results. The algorithm presented here has been tested on 270 buses in Khorasan network and 449 buses in Iran network and has been compared with the CPF.
