In this paper, the most frequently used maintenance strategies are reviewed. Distinction is made between strategies where maintenance consists of replacement by a new (or “good as new”) component and where it is represented by a less costly activity resulting in a limited improvement of the component’s condition. Methods are also divided into categories(More)
This paper illustrates a procedure to incorporate maintenance outages in substation and switching station reliability evaluation. Markov models of the station components and their application in creating mathematical models of station maintenance failure modes are presented. The method is illustrated by application to a switching station. The single station(More)
The physical environment in which transmission and distribution networks operate can have a significant impact on the resulting reliability of the power system. Extreme weather conditions can create an excessive physical stress on overhead lines resulting in sharp increases in the failure rate. This significantly increases the chance of overlapping failures(More)
A summary of research conducted to determine estimators of the perceived cost or losses to small industrial consumers attributable to electric service interruptions is presented. The effect on respondents with standby systems, categorized according to factors which contribute to the total industrial cost estimates and outage costs, are considered. It is(More)
A summary of research conducted to determine the effect of outage costs on commercial consumers having electric standby systems and to identify customer related and interruption related variables that affect the losses is presented. It is shown that consumption and demand normalized outage costs for users having no standby systems are higher typically by(More)
Generating capacity adequacy evaluation is performed to evaluate the ability of the system generating capacity to meet the total system load. There are several basic reliability indices normally used to represent this ability and a wide range of methods have been developed to perform the evaluation. Although the basic reliability indices have been used for(More)
