Distribution Planning Based on Reliability and Contingency Criteria

Sandeep Chakravorty and Smarajit Ghosh

Abstract—Conductor layout plays a vital role in distribution planning. Here in this paper we suggest the distribution planning by the means of Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) where we take into consideration some aspects of reliability such as miles of conductor, feeder failures, customer interruption, maximum interruption, estimated relative cost. The results of the discussed techniques will lead to a configuration of substation that will minimize substation construction cost. It will further lower long range distribution expenses as it will lead to optimum feeder path. The application of the proposed methodology to a case study is presented.

Index Terms—Power distribution planning, AHP technique, optimization methods.
