Title: Static transmission expansion planning using Heuristic and metaheuristic techniques
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: This paper describes a hybrid tool to perform StaticTransmission Expansion Planning, STEP, studies and itsapplication to the Garver 6-Bus academic system and to theSouthern Brazilian Transmission equivalent real system. Thedeveloped STEP tool integrates two phases as follows. The firstone uses Constructive Heuristic Algorithms (CHA) to reduce thesearch space, and the second uses Particle Swarm Optimization(PSO) to identify the final solution. This hybridization betweenCHAs and PSO proved to be very effective and shows goodperformance to reduce the size of the STEP search space and toidentify good quality solutions. These are relevant issues giventhe combinatorial nature of investment problems leading to theexplosion of the number of alternative plans, one of the greatest difficulties faced in this planning problem.
