Probability calculations furnisha useful means whereby the average frequency and duration of generator outages on a power system, as shown by experience records may be converted into a consistent measure of the expectancy of multiple outages upon which the provision of reserves is based. This paper gives the mathematical development of relatively simple… CONTINUE READING
