ABSTRACT Basic and extended planning models, based on a pseudodynamic
methodology, for solving the global expansion problem (sizing, locating,
and timing) of distribution substations and feeders throughout the
planning time period are presented. The objective functions that
represent the expansion costs are minimized by successive concatenated
optimizations subject to the Kirchhoff's current law, power capacity
limits, and logical constraints in the basic model. Also presented is an
extended model that is obtained by including the voltage drop
constraints in the basic model
