                 maintenance so as to minimize costs taking into

                 (1) location and size of demand,

                 Previous work showed the combination of a Genetic
                 Algorithm using an order or permutation chromosome
                 combined with hand coded ``Greedy'' Optimizers can
                 readily produce an optimal schedule for a four node
                 test problem. Following this the same GA has been used
                 to find low cost schedules for the South Wales region
                 of the UK high voltage power network.

                 This paper describes the evolution of the best known
                 schedule for the base South Wales problem using Genetic
                 Programming starting from the hand coded heuristics
                 used with the GA.",
