This paper considers the relevance of operations research to electrical transmission network demand forecasting. It provides a solution on how to structure the transmission networks so that a number of expert views in the South African electrical industry can be modelled mathematically and then uses those outputs for network load flow studies. The outputs (point loads) should include all future demand growth trends so that the electrical networks can be expanded in the most cost-effective manner.
