© 2014 IEEE. To evaluate solutions of power distribution system planning (PDSP) is an essential task in smart grid and requires multi-criteria decision making (MCDM). However, the vagueness of attribute values and the fuzziness of weights of criteria need integrate fuzzy techniques with MCDM. In order to incorporate the issues with uncertainty in PDSP evaluation, this paper proposes a novel PDSP approach based on linear programming model and ELECTRE IIL The incomplete weight preference information of decision-maker is elicited and expressed by a group of weight constraint functions, combined these functions with the simple multi-attribute rating technique, a linear programming model is set up to obtain the weights for each solution. Then with the weights and a PDSP model based on ELECTRE III model, the outranking score of each solution compared with other solutions can be calculated, and a net present score for each solution will be obtained for ranking these solutions, DM can choose one desired. A case is demonstrated to show the evaluation process using this approach and the results indicate that this approach incorporating the issues with uncertainty is robust for PDSP evaluation. The results are acceptable to DM.
