The impending regulation of European electricity markets has led to an increasing cost pressure for network system operators. This applies in equal measure to transmission and distribution network operators. At the same time, boundary conditions of network planning are becoming more and more uncertain as a consequence of unbundling formerly integrated generation, transmission and distribution companies. To reduce network costs without worsening security and quality of supply, planning of transmission and distribution networks needs to be improved. For this, several computer-based optimization methods have been developed over the last years. In this chapter, boundary conditions and degrees of freedom that need to be taken into account during network optimization are discussed at first. Following that, the most commonly used optimization algorithms are presented, and the practical application of those methods is summarized.
