Abstract
A comprehensive analysis of reliability of electricity supply to end users requires a unique set of models, methods and tools. Of special significance are long term power market models for predicting future operating states (generation and load patterns) and more detailed network simulation models for analysing consequences of contingencies. This paper describes an integrated approach for reliability of supply analysis, assessing reliability and interruption costs down to the specifics of different kinds of end users at different delivery points in the network model. Furthermore, the effects of power system protection, temporal variation of parameters, and corrective actions as part of the consequence analysis, are taken into account in the presented integrated approach. The results are illustrated through a case study on a realistic hydro dominated four-area meshed test system.
