Abstract

This paper investigates recent developments in distribution network expansion planning and aims to provide a starting point for those interested in integrating new concepts and technologies in the planning process to develop a new future proof ‘Smart Planning’ approach. The use of more detailed load models is necessary to properly taking into account the impact of new (stochastic) generation and loads and accurately assess the benefits brought by smart grid technologies. A modern planning approach should also be able to account for the impact of the smart market and, to achieve a true optimum, include the costs and benefits for all involved stakeholders.
