In this paper, a stochastic transmission expansion planning (TEP) in the presence of wind farms under uncertain load and wind source conditions when reliability and N-1 contingency is taken into consideration is proposed. The main aim of the suggested TEP is to minimize the total planning cost while satisfying techno-economic constraints. In this paper, reliability cost is also incorporated as the loss of load cost (LOLC) into the objective function in addition to the investment cost. In order to provide more accurate and real results, the N-1 contingency is also considered as a constraint in the TEP problem. Uncertainties for the wind source and loads in the TEP problem are modeled using a scenario-based approach and Monte Carlo simulation. Grey wolf optimization (GWO) is applied to solve the TEP problem, and it is compared to other optimization techniques. The simulation results are provided in various scenarios to confirm the efficiency of the suggested stochastic TEP.
