Fundamentals Series – Electricity Network Planning

Fundamentals Series – Electricity Network Planning

Welcome to the EESA Qld Chapter’s “Fundamental Series”. The aim of these presentations is to help up-and-coming engineers build a solid practical knowledge foundation and for the more experienced, it’s a great refresher and CPD opportunity. In this presentation, we will be discussing the fundamentals of electricity network planning, including deterministic and probabilistic planning philosophies, valuing customer reliability and the associated economic analysis to determine the best value for customer network outcomes.


Grant Haydon is Planning Manager South East at EQL, with a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of New South Wales and nearly 15 years’ experience in Network Planning, Capital Investment, Asset Management and Project and Program Delivery. After a short-lived stint as a Patent Examiner, Grant started his career in the electricity industry at ActewAGL in Canberra where he worked in the Network Planning department, developing augmentation plans for the capacity growth and reliability improvement, before moving into Network Operations and Major Projects delivery.

Following a particularly dismal Canberra winter, Grant made the move to sunny Queensland to work in the Transmission Planning department, delivering planning studies and capital approvals for a range of augmentation and refurbishment projects across the Energex network. He has since worked in Program Investment Optimisation and Asset Lifecycle Strategy, before being appointed to lead the Network Planning team for South East Queensland. Grant is passionate about delivering value for EQL’s customer’s through efficient investment in the network to deliver reliable and secure energy.
