A Hybrid Approach to Investigating the Distributional Aspects Associated with Reliability System Indices

Publication Type

Conference Paper

Date Published




The power system analysis area has recently been challenged by the merge between the automotive and power industries and their combined objective to work towards a lowcarbon electrified transport economy. In order to study the hourly effects on the reliability of power systems, this paper first proposes a discussion of the risk methodologies and then a novel way of examining the probability distributions of the reliability indices based on a hybrid approach. The effects of the substantial use of renewable energy combined with the integration of electric vehicles will be discussed in relation to the IEEE test systems and a planning configuration of the Portuguese Generation System. Keywords—Power system reliability, Wind power generation, Monte Carlo methods.
