Bibliometric analysis from expansion planning of Electric Power Systems

Keywords: Contingency Index, expansion methodology, planning, transmission, generation, electric power systems


This article presents a bibliometric analysis on the planning of the expansion of electric power systems, a topic of great importance due to the continuous growth of electricity demand. For this reason, electrical power systems must be designed and built to foresee future expansions through the entry of new generation plants, transmission lines and compensating equipment. For the development of this research, keywords that will help find articles on the same subject in Scopus and Web of Science databases will be taken into account. This information will then be organized according to the countries, authors, number of citations and organizations to make a comparison of the information obtained through VOSviewer to inquire about acceptance criteria. By having the selected articles, the matrix of the State of the Art is made which will provide information on formulation, restriction, proposal and solution to the problem.
