This paper deals with expansion planning problem of large electric power systems. The initial complicate multi-criteria problem is presented as hierarchical set of step-by-step solved sub-problems. Each sub-problem is characterized its own number of criteria which usually is only the part of initial set of criteria. Qualitative illustration of relations between criteria of initial problem and sub-problems is presented. Some generalization of results is given.
