Optimal Overhead Distribution Network Planning Based Graph Theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The paper presents a model for optimizes the resources used in the overhead distribution network planning, which allows the deployment of transformers considering coverage and capacity of them. It shows a routing model of the media voltage network based of minimum Steiner tree to find the best route in a geo-referenced area. The planning has been made over a geo-referenced scenery with data from OpenStreetMap platform, with the purpose of locations the transformers and the topology of the net area real. Results imply a starting point for electricity distribution companies to establish work plans for de expansion and planning of the electricity distribution network considering the variability at the demand present.
