	%X Transmission network expansion planning (TNEP) is
a basic part of power system planning that determines where, when
and how many new transmission lines should be added to the
network. Up till now, various methods have been presented to solve
the static transmission network expansion planning (STNEP)
problem. But in all of these methods, transmission expansion
planning considering network adequacy restriction has not been
investigated. Thus, in this paper, STNEP problem is being studied
considering network adequacy restriction using discrete particle
swarm optimization (DPSO) algorithm. The goal of this paper is
obtaining a configuration for network expansion with lowest
expansion cost and a specific adequacy. The proposed idea has been
tested on the Garvers network and compared with the decimal
codification genetic algorithm (DCGA). The results show that the
network will possess maximum efficiency economically. Also, it is
shown that precision and convergence speed of the proposed DPSO
based method for the solution of the STNEP problem is more than
DCGA approach.
