Substation Location and Transmission Network Expansion Problem in Power System

In this paper, we propose a model for the generation and transmission network expansion planning problem that includes decisions related to substations’ locations and sizes. In power system expansion planning problems, locations of generation units and/or transmission lines are determined. However, substation location decisions are not explicitly studied. Nevertheless, including the decisions of substations’ locations … Read more

A Distance-Limited Continuous Location-Allocation Problem for Spatial Planning of Decentralized Systems

We introduce a new continuous location-allocation problem where the facilities have both a xed opening cost and a coverage distance limitation. The problem might have wide applications especially in the spatial planning of water and/or energy access networks where the coverage distance might be associated with the physical loss constraints. We formulate a mixed integer … Read more
