Abstract: This paper introduces a new heuristic model for transmission expansion planning (TEP) which uses a multicriteria decision making (MCDM) framework. In order to do this, at first, new candidates are recommended for TEP. Investment cost and total cost are calculated for new candidates that are considered for the existing test system. Finally, using an analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and Simple additive weighing (SAW), the ranking is allotted according to the best optimal cost which is selected among candidates. IEEE 24-Bus system is used to confirm the proposed algorithm’s performance.
Keywords: Transmission Expansion Planning, Multi-Criteria Decision Making Methods, Analytic Heirarchy Process, Simple Additive Weighting.
