Power distribution planning is a complex task in which planners must ensure that there is adequate substation capacity (transformer capacity) and feeder capacity (distribution capacity) to meet the load demands. Decisions such as allocation of power flow, installation of feeders and substations, and procurement of transformers are costly ones which must be evaluated carefully. This paper provides a review of research problems as well as models related to the planning of substations and/or distribution feeders. Following a general discussion, we review existing research work under two major groups: planning under normal conditions, and planning for emergency. A discussion on relevant research opportunities is included
