State-of-the-art of transmission expansion planning: A survey from restructuring to renewable and distributed electricity markets

Authors

Abstract
Transmission Expansion Planning (TEP) problem aims at identifying when and where new equipment as transmission lines, cables and transformers should be inserted on the grid. The transmission upgrade capacity is motivated by several factors as meeting the increasing electricity demand, increasing the reliability of the system and providing non-discriminatory access to cheap generation for consumers. However, TEP problems have been changing over the years as the electrical system evolves. In this way, this paper provides a detailed historical analysis of the evolution of the TEP over the years and the prospects for this challenging task. Furthermore, this study presents an outline review of more than 140 recent articles about TEP problems, literature insights and identified gaps as a critical thinking in how new tools and approaches on TEP can contribute for the new era of renewable and distributed electricity markets. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd

Abstract
Electric vehicles will certainly play an important and increasing role in the transport sector over the next years. As their number grows, they will affect the behavior of the electricity demand seen not only by distribution but also by transmission networks and so changes will also occur in the operation and expansion planning of the power systems. In this sense, this paper addresses the impact of large fleets of Plug-in-Electric Vehicles (PEVs) in transmission equipment investments. The developed model uses evolutionary particle swarm optimization (EPSO) to handle the planning problem over different scenarios regarding the evolution of PEVs and their impact on the demand. These scenarios consider the PEVs penetration level, the availability of charging and the related charging policies. The paper includes a Case Study based on the IEEE 24 busbar power system model for a 10-year period. The model uses an AC Optimal Power Flow to analyse the operation of the system for different investment paths over the years and the results show that coordinating the charging of PEVs can be an interesting solution to postpone the investments in transmission equipment thus reducing the associated costs.
