An Analytical Approach For Transmission Expansion Planning with Generation Variations

Maneesh Kumar, Raminder Kaur


Planning for expanding a power system under different scenarios is one of the major challenge for power engineers hence, it is very important and essential to implement a well-balanced and feasible system over a time horizon under suitable assumptions and available constraints. Transmission expansion planning is one of this task. Here it is important to develop a suitable planning structure. In this paper some analytical approaches have been implemented for specific load condition with variations in generation.
