Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to present opportunities and technical features of the developed software for study of prospective Interstate Power Grid (ISPG) expansion in Northeast Asia. The mathematical model for optimization of power systems expansion and operating modes, which is the main part of the computing & geo-information system (CIS), is used. In this model, a linear optimization method is used to find optimal installed capacities by generation type mix; optimal electric ties transfer capabilities and operating modes for each electric power system in the ISPG. Annualized costs of the ISPG expansion as a whole are the value of the objective function. The obtained results of the model in tabular, graphic and cartographic forms are presented. Examples of the CIS usage for study of different scenarios of ISPG expansion in the Northeast Asia are shown.
