Reliability is a major factor in power system planning such as generation expansion planning (GEP). GEP is a programming, which denotes place, capacity, time, and technology of new installed generation units. In this paper, generation expansion planning is carried out subject to reliability satisfaction. In the proposed method, the system reliability is incorporated as a constraint in the planning. The planning is formulated as a constrained optimization programming and solved by using particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique.
