eview review of power distribution planning in the modern power ystems era : Models , methods and future research

  title={eview review of power distribution planning in the modern power ystems era : Models , methods and future research},
  author={avlos S. Georgilakis and Nikos D. Hatziargyriou},
In recent years, significant research efforts have been devoted to the optimal design of modern power distribution systems. The aim of power distribution planning (PDP) is to design the distribution system such as to timely meet the demand growth in the most economical, reliable, and safe manner possible. The gradual transformation of the distribution grid from passive to active imposes the need to also consider the effect of distributed generation and active demand during planning and the…
