Electricity is necessary for human life and is a major driver of economic growth. The demand for electricity has been rising continuously. An effective and sufficient power transmission infrastructure is required to deliver high-quality, reliable, and sustainable electricity. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to select a location for substation construction project in Thailand. Based on a survey of the various landmarks, 10 alternative locations for the substation's construction are suitable locations. There are Krathum Baen 6, Krathum Baen 7, Tha Sai 2, Tha Muang 2, Tha Maka 2, Ban Pong 3, Bang Lane 2, Samut Sakhon 10, Samut Sakhon 11, and Om-Noi 5. Four criteria to be considered in the selection of the location of the substation construction project are determined as power consumption, the number of system problems time, the number of outages electricity meters, and electricity bills. The TOPSIS technique is conducted for calculation. The findings demonstrate that substation construction project that decision-makers must consider is the number of system problems time. The suitable locations are Om-Noi 5 and Bang Lane 2, Tha Maka 2, respectively.
