This paper presents a mixed integer linear programming model for single stage least cost transmission expansion planning that considers generation plant location selection. The model includes DC load flow equations and (N−1) security constraints. The non-linearity of the load flow equations is avoided by using a new state enumeration method that reduces the size of the model formulation. Methods are developed for identification of the critical contingencies of a network and formulation of security constraints of the identified critical contingencies by using line outage distribution factors. The number of variables and constraints in a transmission planning model would be reduced considerably by using these methods. Such a reduction would help to handle relatively large transmission planning problems and incorporate more technical considerations. A case study of the Sri Lankan power system is conducted in order to illustrate the potential of the new approach.
Transmission network expansion planning is a complicated non-linear optimization problem in which the power flow and the transmission network security analyses are the two major modelling issues. The problem has been solved through heuristic methods  and  as well as traditional mathematical optimization techniques , , , ,  and . However, heuristic methods are not rigorous from the mathematical viewpoint. The traditional mathematical optimization techniques find it difficult to solve the transmission planning problem due to non-linearity and size (i.e. number of constraints and variables) of the problem. A state enumeration method was devised by Gilles , Farrag and El-Metwally  and Seifu et al.  to avoid non-linearity of the power flow equations. A branch is defined as a set of identical circuits connecting two nodes of the network. The branches, which are feasible options for capacity additions during the planning horizon, are considered as candidate branches. The states of a candidate branch are the possible number of its circuits. The new state enumeration method in this paper reduces numbers of variables and constraints of the proposed transmission planning model. This would facilitate handling relatively large transmission expansion planning problems. The size of the problem formulation is mainly affected by its security constraints. The transmission security criterion of the proposed model is the single circuit outage (N−1) criterion, which is commonly used in existing models  and . Hereafter a single circuit outage of a branch is called a ‘contingency’. A contingency is said to be critical if it can affect the capacity of a branch of the network. The proposed model considers two methods: (i) the identification of the critical contingencies of the network before model formulation; and (ii) the formulation of security constraints to the identified critical contingencies using line outage distribution factors (LODFs) . LODFs are used to calculate power flows under contingency conditions directly. In contrast, DC load flow analysis solves a set of equations to determine power flows in various branches of a network. Unlike existing methods, the proposed method does not need any additional variable in formulating the security constraints. As a result, there is a substantial reduction in the number of variables used in the formulation. Furthermore, the proposed method to identify critical contingencies reduces the number of constraints of the formulation considerably. As a result, the computational problem associated with the transmission planning accounting generation location selection becomes relatively simple. Since the method of identifying critical contingencies does not involve any assumption, it maintains the accuracy of the transmission planning exercise. A common practice in transmission expansion planning is to minimize the cost of transmission capacity and losses within the operational and security constraints of the power system. However, the cost of transmission depends on capacity and location of the existing and the new generation plants as well as time of commissioning of new generating plants. Horne et al.  studied the impact of power plant locations on transmission plans. In this study, generation plant location and transmission capacity additions are identified sequentially using a simplified linear programming model. The mixed integer linear programming model proposed in this paper considers both location selection of planned generating units and transmission expansion planning simultaneously. Here costs of transmission capacity and losses as well as costs of generation operation and capacity are included in the objective function of the model. Since generation expansion planning is to be done prior to the transmission planning, costs of generation of new units at their feasible locations are calculated according to the expected energy generation of the units in generation planning studies. Section 2 discusses the overall transmission-planning framework followed by a description of the procedure to identify the critical contingencies. The single stage transmission planning model is presented in Section 4 in which the proposed state enumeration method and the transmission security constraints are described in detail. The model proposed here is applied in the case of the Sri Lankan power system for long-term transmission expansion planning using horizon year planning criterion. Section 5 outlines the case study. Section 6 summarizes the major conclusions of the study.

This paper has formulated transmission expansion planning and generation location selection problems as a single optimization model that minimizes the cost of generation and transmission. It is important to note that the consideration of generation location selection results not only in lower transmission cost but also in lower total cost of the power system. An interesting feature of the present approach is that the formulation of transmission security constraints in the model involves the use of LODFs that significantly reduces the numbers of variables and constraints of the model. With the help of LODFs, critical contingency conditions are identified prior to the model application. As a result, the number of constraints in the transmission planning problem is further reduced. The reduction in the number of variables and constraints allows inclusion of generation plant location selection into transmission planning exercise. The case study shows that the identification of critical contingencies and use of LODFs in formulating security constraints would reduce the security constraints considerably. For example, the number of security constraints to formulate contingencies of the existing branches is reduced by about 99%. Another special feature of the model is that a new state enumeration method is used to formulate the DC load flow equation. This method requires fewer continuous and 0–1 integer variables. Furthermore, it would require fewer constraints in the problem formulation. The case study of the Sri Lankan power system based on the present approach shows that the transmission cost of the power system would be reduced by about 19%. Since the total transmission cost is only 7% of the total combined cost of generation and transmission, only 0.2% reduction with the present approach could be observed in the total combined cost.
