2016 Planning of Sustainable Transmission and Distribution Systems (Panel)

2016 Panel: Modern Heuristic Optimization Techniques for Optimal Planning of Sustainable Transmission and Distribution Systems

The transition towards sustainable electrical power systems demands an adaptation of transmission and distribution systems to cope with the variability and geographical dispersion of renewable generation, which jeopardizes the operational economy and reliability. The adaptation involves the planning of important grid modifications that have strong influence on real-time operation and control. This panel aimed at addressing the following issues related to optimal planning of sustainable transmission and distribution systems: i) Opportunities and challenges to the planning of offshore transnational grids. ii) Implications of the emergence of active distribution systems, and the integration of unconventional technologies on optimal transmission planning. iii) An overview and discussion on the formulation complexities, scalability, and solution challenges of the optimal transmission planning problem under high uncertainty. iv) Case studies, performance comparison, and experience with the application of classical, heuristic, and hybrid optimization algorithms.
