This paper presents a new model and solution methodology for optimal planning of high-voltage transmission network investments. The objective of this problem is to mimimise capital costs needed for new network elements while meeting imposed operating constraints, and it is formulated via a linear mixed-integer model. Then a new branch-and-bound methodology is proposed for the problem solution.
