The key information required for quantitative evaluation of bulk power system reliability includes frequency and duration of multiple transmission line outages that cause system problems. Two fundamental approaches to reporting and analyzing transmission performance data to predict these multiple outages have evolved in the industry. These have been referred to as "unit" and the "component" approaches. A third approach "hybrid" has also been suggested. This paper interprets these approaches and… CONTINUE READING
