A proposal for reliability evaluation of components on electric power distribution system integrating probabilistic models and fuzzy inference systems
The system reliability depends on the reliability of its components itself. Therefore, it is necessary a methodology capable of inferring the state of functionality of these components to establish reliable indices of ...
Network reconfiguration of distribution systems using metaheuristics and reliability measures
In an evermore competitive environment, power distribution companies need to continuously monitor and improve the reliability indices of their systems. The network reconfiguration (NR) of a distribution system is a technique ...
Sensitivity of reliability-growth models to operational profile errors vs testing accuracy
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers IncNew York, 1996)
Switch allocation problems in power distribution systems
(Ieee-inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2015-01-01)
Reliability analysis of power systems has been attracting increasing attention. Regulatory agencies establish reliability standards that, if infringed, result in costly fines for the utility suppliers. A special concern ...
Reliability paper Use of copula functions for the reliability of series systems
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide a new method to estimate the reliability of series system by using copula functions. This problem is of great interest in industrial and engineering applications. ...
