  author={Stine Fleischer Myhre and Olav Bjarte Fosso and Poul Einar Heegaard and Oddbj{\o}rn Gjerde},
With increased penetration of new technology in the distribution systems such as renewable energy resources, flexible resources, and information and communication technology, the distribution systems become more complex and dynamic. The traditional reliability analysis methods do not consider the new components and technology and new considerations need to be taken to address these new changes in the distribution system. This paper presents an open-source reliability assessment tool for smart…

Reliability Assessment of Distribution Systems including Microgrids

A reliability assessment method for modern distribution systems based on Monte Carlo simulations is presented and it is confirmed through statistical testing showing the statistical significance in providing support from the microgrid on the distribution system’s reliability.



Reliability assessment in smart distribution networks

A modeling approach for dependability analysis of smart distribution grids

A comprehensive modeling framework suited to study the resiliency and dependability of the next generation distribution grid is presented and reveals insight in the complex interaction and dependencies between the ICT based control system and the power- grid.

RELRAD-an analytical approach for distribution system reliability assessment

The use of reliability analysis within the framework of distribution system planning is addressed. A specific model for reliability calculations in radially operated distribution systems is

Reliability Assessment of Microgrids With Local and Mobile Generation, Time-Dependent Profiles, and Intraday Reconfiguration

In this paper, the notion of reliability assessment for distribution system applications is revisited to include a number of practices emerging in the smart grid context. The information on the

Representation of the influence of telecommunications on electrical distribution network reliability

Results from a simplified example show the important existing, non-homogeneous dependence between reliability of the electrical network and the behaviour of different elements of the supporting ICT, and highlight the need for further refinements in the representation of the ICT.

Grid of the future

Many believe the electric power system is undergoing a profound change driven by a number of needs. There's the need for environmental compliance and energy conservation. We need better grid

Network Reconfiguration in Distribution Systems for Loss Reduction and Load Balancing

A general formulation of the feeder reconfiguration problem for loss reduction and load balancing is given, and a novel solution method is presented. The solution uses a search over different radial

The paper describes an implementation of a set of object oriented Python library functions for distribution system analysis. To illustrate its functionalities, an example of load flow calculation is

A compensation-based power flow method for weakly meshed distribution and transmission networks

A power flow method is described for solving weakly meshed distribution and transmission networks, using a multiport compensation technique and basic formations of Kirchoff's laws. This method has
