Abstract: This paper presents a method to optimize equipment investments in multizonal transmission systems, considering spatial properties of the areas of focus. Together with a probabilistic technique for assessing nodal injection capability, the method in the paper completes the methodology of a long term transmission system planning tool. Transmission topology, line route and technology are optimized through iterative application of linear integer programming and Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm. By optimizing the transmission route, the spatial properties of the area of focus are taken into account, which in turn can significantly influence the installation costs of transmission equipment. The optimization method considers both AC and DC technology and takes the N-1 security criterion into account.
