This papersurveys the methods of solving the reliability and economy problems in transmission expansion planning. The different reliability indices and economy indices are analyzed and compared on both the mathematical models and the solving algorithms.The algorithms may be divided into heuristic optimization method and mathematical optimization method. Finally,the directions of future research in transmission expansion planning are proposed.
