Abstract

In the present work, for the site selection of thermal power plant a methodology based upon Graph Theory and Matrix Method (GTMM) is proposed. The objective of this research is to first identify, rank and relate the important factors and sub factors relevant to the power plant location selection and provide a framework of relationships amongst factors using Graph Theory Approach (GTA). GTA is a systematic and logical approach which synthesizes the interrelationship among different parameters or sub-system parameters and provides a score for the entire system that is helpful for site selection of power plant.
