The increase of renewable energy sources in Europe is connected with a new challenge for the transmission system. In Germany, the decrease of generation capacity in central and southern regions and new conventional and renewable power plants located in the North necessitate investments in the transmission grid. In this paper, the need of grid expansions is identified using a genetic optimization model. The algorithm finds the cost-minimal investments projects for a given network topology. The… CONTINUE READING
