Abstract
Reliability of power system in terms of investments in network maintenance and restructuring for power distribution network has gained importance due to increase in distributed generation. To determine the reliability of the power distribution network, the state of power apparatus, losses in the network and consumer satisfaction indices are key factors. Considering the aforementioned, this paper proposes a holistic reliability framework for power distribution networks. The framework lists the following factors: life cycle of power apparatus, environmental and sociological, node reliability, arc reliability. A case study for reliability evaluation is performed on a modified IEEE 14 bus network. Furthermore, multiple scenarios of generation fault or outage are studied and results are presented. The key contribution of this paper is to present a novel and holistic reliability framework to model distribution network
