Recently, the task of planning in power systems is becoming a very complicated process for utility planners. This kind of planning has many objectives to accomplish. This paper employs the negotiation algorithm, which was proposed by the Chen-Ching Liu group for subtransmission power system planning to create a plan having many objectives. First, the goal-decision network (GDN) is constructed to model this planning problem, and the negotiation algorithm is applied to utilize both subtransmission system planning GDN, which attempts to capture its knowledge, and negotiation operators, which search for the most feasible and promising decisions in this planning GDN. Finally, the negotiation expert system is demonstrated for the subtransmission system planning using a real system.
