In response to new developments in the field, practical teaching experience, and readers' suggestions, the authors of the warmly received Reliablity Evaluation of Engineering Systems have updated and extended the work-providing extended coverage of fault trees and a more complete examination of probability distribution, among other things-without disturbing(More)
Power grid reliability impacts could be significant when a large amount of variable wind generation is integrated with the electric power system. The widely used deterministic reliability assessment method is invalid when modeling the intermittency of wind energy sources. The energy-based probabilistic reliability assessment models are required in system(More)
A novel analytical approach of reliability evaluation for a wind-diesel hybrid power system with a battery bank for power supply in the remote areas is proposed in this article. This approach is developed on the basis of the discrete wind-speed frame analysis of the Weibull wind-speed distribution. Using the wind-speed frame analysis, an analytical model of(More)
