Abstract: Electricity generation expansion planning problems are solved to determine when, where and which new generations units should be constructed to meet the future demand. To obtain more economic, reliable, environmental friendly and realistic power network, the problem is modeled as a multi-objective stochastic problem and the uncertainties in the power network are represented by the scenarios. There are two sources of uncertainty in the model; component availability and user demand. For a large system, there are numerous combinations of possible demand levels and failed components. Therefore, a methodology is developed to generate an efficient set of scenarios to characterize the uncertainty. There are also new technological developments called “Smart Grid” technologies which can be used within the power grid. Mathematical models are proposed to incorporate Smart Grid technologies into the GEP problem to determine their optimal implementation planning and to observe their impact on the other expansion and dispatching decisions.
