Transmission-expansion planning based on anon-linear programming algorithm


  • Al-Hamouz, Zakariya Mahmoud
  • Al-Faraj, Ali Sadiq


In this formulation, the objective function and operating constraints include the corona power-loss term. The objective function consists of three terms: cost of investment of new transmission lines, ohmic power loss of new and existing lines, and corona-power loss of new lines. This combination of terms results in a non-linear objective function. The non-linear programming or the non-convex optimization technique is used to solve such large-scale practical problem. The new formulation has been applied to the 28-bus Jordanian high-voltage transmission network in order to test and justify its applicability.
