A novel communication network planning method is proposed by considering the relationship between optical fiber communication network and power grid and the topological stability of communication networks. Firstly, the minimum spanning tree is used to generate the shortest power grid topology in term of the minimum expense of initial power grid. Then, for dual network (i.e., power grid and communication network) coupling characteristics, considering the constraints of network looping rate and invulnerability, an economic planning model is established and further solved by using the particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm. Finally, a 29-node system is employed to confirm the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed method.
