The development of new mathematical programming models and modern solution techniques to solve the expansion and operation planning problems of the electric power system is of great importance for the different companies and organs of the national and international electric sector, due to the annual growth in demand and the need to meet consumers with quality energy supply, high reliability rates and competitive costs. Thus, new computational tools, developed from the use of optimization techniques, can lead to substantial cost reductions in expansion and operation planning of the electric power system. In this way, it is important for the planning departments of the companies to develop these computational tools for analysis and planning that contemplate the reliability and the quality of the electric power supply economically, taking into account the amount of investments to be applied in the projects of the electric power systems. This research project aims to develop new mathematical models of optimization and modern solution techniques to solve the transmission network expansion planning problem, the optimal active-reactive power flow problem and the Short-term hydroelectric scheduling planning problem. The new mathematical models will be written in the mathematical programming language AMPL and the solution will be obtained through the commercial solvers CPLEX. Modern solution techniques will be implemented in the Python programming language. (AU)
