A solid reference exploring one of the most important areas in the electric power industry

Transmission planning is one of the most essential activities in the electric power industry, with billions of dollars invested in transmission systems by electric utility companies and governments every year. In the United States alone, the Obama Administration′s energy plan is spending about four billion dollars in smart grids and transmission infrastructures.

Systematically discussing probabilistic transmission planning and its applications that make systems smarter, Probabilistic Transmission System Planning addresses the concepts, models, methods, data, and various actual issues in probabilistic transmission planning. The probabilistic concept is a main thread throughout the book and touches each chapter. The applied examples are all based on real projects that have been implemented in the utility industry.

All basic aspects in transmission planning are covered, including:

  • Load forecast and load modeling

  • Conventional and special system analysis techniques

  • Reliability evaluation

  • Economic assessment

  • Data preparation

  • Fuzzy techniques for data uncertainty

  • Network reinforcement planning

  • Retirement planning of network components

  • Substation planning

  • Single–circuit supply system planning

Major blackout events in power systems in recent years indicate that deterministic methods are not good enough. With probabilistic methods providing planning solutions closer to reality, Probabilistic Transmission System Planning presents practicing engineers, researchers, professors, and graduates in the power system field with the latest ideas and methods for enhancing transmission systems.
