LONG TERM TRANSMISSION EXPANSION PLANNING FOR INDIAN POWER SYSTEM: A REVIEW
Long Term Transmission Expansion Planning plays a vital role in electrical power systems. As electrical load grows unboundedly, it causes electrical generation has to rise accordance with load and than simultaneously it leads to enhance the facilities of transmission system. To enhance the facilities of Transmission system, one must has to asses load forecasting, generation growth, social economic constraints and environmental impacts. In this paper, objectives, tools and methodologies for LTEP are discussed. Present transmission facilities available in India are presented and also suggested different LTEP methodologies for Indian Power System. Transmission growth and expected growth during 11th plan and 12th plan and 13th plan are discussed.
