Distribution System Reliability Assessment for Improved Feeder Configurations

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
This Paper enlightens the significance of the reliability evaluation for an electrical power distribution network using the analytical technique FMEA. The power distribution system is subject to interruptions frequently as a lot of devices are responsible for its effective operation. All the possible failures of each component are considered and the reliability is evaluated in terms of system reliability indices like SAIFI, SAIDI, ENS, and ASAI. FMEA method observes the failure modes of a

The influences of various feeder reconfigurations are considered and the system reliability indices are obtained. The obtained results show that the reliability of the distribution system is enriched with various feeder reconfigurations. Reliability Evaluation helps to design the future Distribution system and its expansion.
