Stochastic Diffusion Process-based Multi-Level Monte Carlo for Predictive Reliability Assessment of Distribution System

Reliability assessment of electrical distribution systems is an important criterion to determine system performance in terms of interruptions. Probabilistic assessment methods are usually used in



Composite system adequacy assessment using sequential Monte Carlo simulation with variance reduction techniques

The paper discusses two commonly used techniques - control variates and antithetic variates with reference to the sequential simulation method used for adequacy analysis and utilises optimum control coefficients associated with the regression term in the control variate method to further improve the correlation between the control Variate and the variable to be estimated.

Blackouts in power systems are due to cascading failures whose typical development can be split in two phases: a slow cascade and a fast cascade. Once a blackout occurred, the restoration is as an

Generating Capacity Reliability Evaluation Based on Monte Carlo Simulation and Cross-Entropy Methods

A new Monte Carlo simulation (MCS) approach based on cross-entropy (CE) method to evaluate generating capacity reliability (GCR) indices using an auxiliary importance sampling density function, whose parameters are obtained from an optimization process that minimizes the computational effort of the MCS estimation approach.

Multilevel Monte Carlo for Reliability Theory

Minimizing Unserved Energy Using Heterogeneous Storage Units

A policy is presented and shown to minimize unserved energy during supply-shortfall events, regardless of the supply and demand profiles, and a discrete time optimal policy is conceived, in both analytic and algorithmic forms.

Reliability Assessment of Electric Power Systems Using Monte Carlo Methods

The basic concepts of Power System Reliability Evaluation and Elements of Monte Carlo Methods and Reliability Cost/Worth Assessment are explained.

Multi-index Monte Carlo: when sparsity meets sampling

The MIMC method is both a stochastic version of the combination technique introduced by Zenger, Griebel and collaborators and an extension of the multilevel Monte Carlo (MLMC) method first described by Heinrich and Giles.
