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

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a new methodology is presented for dynamic expansion planning of sub-transmission substations (DEPSS). The proposed method deals with the expansion schemes of the facilities which should be installed and/or reinforced in order to make the sub-transmission system capable of supplying the forecasted demand at the lowest cost while all technical constraints are satisfied. DEPSS is inherently a mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problem due to the prevalent electrical and expansion constraints, cost indices in objective function and decision variables. This nonlinear problem is simplified to a linear problem without any neglecting by the proposed method. The location, capacity and construction time of substations and MV feeders, as well as the optimal service area of substations are determined through a dynamic approach for the planning years. Meanwhile, the optimal operation capacities of substations are determined at each load level in every planning year. The effectiveness of the proposed optimization method is discussed in the first case study which is related to just placement and defining the associated service area. Also, the proposed dynamic method is tested on a realistic case study and compared with the static and multistage approaches.

    ABSTRACT: The paper considers the problem of expansion planning of complex distributed electricity supply systems as a hierarchy of problems. At the first stage the problems of choosing a rational configuration of the electricity supply system are solved. A method is suggested to optimize placement of supply sources and assignment of consumers to them, which is one of the main problems to be solved at the first stage. The method is based on the genetic programming algorithms. A case study applied to test the developed algorithms is presented. The obtained results are discussed and the problems of further research are formulated.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a new genetic algorithm (GA) has been developed for optimal distribution network design. Distribution transformer station location and size selection is evaluated together with feeder route and size selection in the study. The model used in the design includes realistic rules that are derived from actual networks. I. INTRODUCTION As energy consumption increases, the need to expand energy production and distribution is inevitable. To meet the increase timely, many studies have been made in this area. In this paper the optimum distribution network design is examined.
