RICARDO, Andrés Bolaños; CORREA, Carlos Adrián  and  GRANADA ECHEVERRI, Mauricio. Ant Colony Optimization Applied on Transmission Planning Problem. [online]. 2009, n.30, pp.33-40. ISSN 0121-4993.

This paper proposes an Ant Colony Optimization method to solve the investment problem for the Transmission Expansion Planning Problem for Electrical Power Systems. Operative problem of Linear Programming is solved trough a High Order Interior Point Method. Moreover, the solution of a Non Linear Interior Point Method is used as a sensitivity index to initialize pheromone matrix used in the Ant Colony Algorithm, where is proposed a method with two stages to obtain a solution. The methodology is tested on the 24 and 6 Bus IEEE systems.

Keywords : Ant colony optimization, interior point method; linear programming; non linear programming; transmission expansion planning.
