Resumo

The growth of subtransmission network aims at satisfying load growth, maintaining a contingency level, and providing a high quality and reliable electricity service. Utilities direct the investments to reinforce this system and thus a meshed network with multiple-point feeding to the transmission system arises. At this point, an efficient alternative to achieve these objectives is to carry out a diagnosis of the network architecture and, taking advantage of the switching capability, to plan the switching of the subtransmission lines. An optimal subtransmission switching approach is proposed based on constrained multi-objective optimization that deals with energy losses and reliability, in addition to using information on the characteristics of loads and generation. A simulation-based optimization framework is constructed using the non-dominated genetic classification algorithm NSGA-II in the optimization phase and reliability assessment during simulation phase. As a result, a set of non-dominated solutions approximating the Pareto front is obtained, which allows the planner to make decisions based on its priorities and needs. The performance of the proposal is assessed with a real subtransmission system of an Ecuadorian power utility. This approach to the operational planning of a meshed subtransmission network constitutes a powerful decision-making tool that could be adopted by distribution utilities.
