7.4.1.2 Appropriateness Degrees of **Expansion** Plans Versus Stakeholders’ Desires

Suppose

k

C i for i=1, .., 5 is the criterion which is used for measur**in**g competition (i=1),

reliability (i=2), operation flexibility (i=3), network charge (i=4), and environmental impacts

(i=5) of plan k. Smaller values of all these criteria **in**dicate better conditions. Hence, **in**verse of

these criteria are used to measure the appropriateness degrees of expansion plans:

A = 1/

C for i=1, …, Nsd (7.1)

For aggregat**in**g the appropriateness degrees of expansion plans versus different decision

criteria, the appropriateness degrees must be comparable versus different decision criteria.

Therefore,

k

A i is normalized on its maximum value over different expansion plans.

7.4.1.3 Fuzzy Appropriateness Index

Let Xj∈X is the importance weight of stakeholder j **in** decision mak**in**g and Yij is the

importance degree of desire i from the viewpo**in**t of stakeholder j. The importance degree of

desire i from the viewpo**in**t of transmission planners is equal to the weighted mean of Yij i.e.:
