ABSTRACT

 

Various Studies reveal that undesirable effects of extra high voltage (EHV) to the surrounding population and environment. Substation location modeling research has emphasized on the proximity to demand points or population centers to minimize transmission losses. An attempt has been made to formulate a new multi goal cost model considering both quantitative and qualitative factors, to facilitate decision making for locating a new EHV substation in an existing power transmission network so as to minimize cost as well as its undesirable effects on the surrounding environment.

 

Keywords : Multi-goal optimization , Extra high voltage (EHV) Substation, REL chart.
