About the Project
The modern society and its vital infrastructures such as telecommunications, financial systems, and public security depend on electricity. This dependence is ever increasing by the electrification of the transport systems. This is happening while the uncertainties in electric power systems is rapidly increasing due to the massive integration of the renewable energy resources, emergence of energy storage devices, and more frequent natural disasters and cyberattacks. Transmission network is the backbone of the electric power systems and supports the continuous delivery of electricity. As such the resilience of the electric power systems depends on the resilience of transmission networks. This highlights the pressing need for the development of mathematical tools assisting transmission planners to evaluate the resilience of transmission expansion plans.
Transmission expansion planning is a process by which an organization defines the future development of the transmission system by determining the time, location and type of transmission equipment installation. A transmission system expansion plan must be economic, environmentally acceptable and satisfy the required performance criteria. Existing transmission expansion planning processes mainly focus on reliability, economics and public policy without accounting for the resilience aspect. The objective of this project is to develop mathematical tools for resilient transmission expansion planning by taking into account the uncertainties posed to the electric power systems by the rapid integration of the renewable energy resources, electrification of transport systems and more frequent adverse events like natural disasters and cyberattacks.
