A New Analytical Method for Impact Evaluation of Distributed Generation on Distribution System Reliability

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Presence of Distributed Generation (DG) in electric distribution systems affects the system reliability and different methods for evaluation of system reliability indices are needed. In this paper, reliability evaluation of distribution system in various operation modes of DG is attended and a new analytical method is proposed in order to evaluate system reliability indices. This method is developed based on the classification of hourly load and calculation of the restoration probability according to restoration priority of each section. This method has less calculations and accurate results, so that its accuracy is comparable to that of Monte-Carlo simulation.
