Abstract

This paper presents a discussion of the contemporary transmission expansion planning (TEP) framework focusing on educational opportunities and curriculum development. An analysis of the mathematical models and fundamental concepts, as well as available software tools and necessary skills for state-of-the-art TEP projects, is presented based on research and academic experiences. A guide to TEP curriculum development for power engineering programs is proposed including materials at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
