In order to enhance the serviceability in the distribution system genetic algorithm and GIS based method is proposed in this article for planning the link distribution networks. All practical issues such as cost parameters (investments, line losses, maintenance), and technical constraints (voltage drop, thermal limit, reliability) as well as physical routing constraints (obstacles, high cost passages, existing line sections) are taken into consideration. Fuzzy set concept and scenario representation (tree of futures) to model uncertainties, as well as decision making guided by a paradigm of multi-criteria risk analysis are discussed. The merits of the approach are discussed by analyzing its application to a study case based on a real case in a Croatian utility.
