This chapter will commence by examining the project-generic design requirements concerned with HV network design (with the requirements for HV equipment design covered in Chapters 6-8). The HV network design requirements examined may be categorised into: HV network planning standards. HV network design standards - requiring power system studies. HV network design standards - with fixed design parameters. The chapter will then go on to examine project-specific design, at the HV network design level (and the interaction with project-generic design) and conclude with future challenges facing the design of power networks.
