Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The paper proposes a procedure to assess the reliability indices needed in
evaluating an urban medium-voltage network. There are several ways of determining the reliability indices describing the network in its current state as well as the potential changes caused by reinforcing the electrical
installations, implementing restructuring measures or increased generation and demand in the network structure.
For the calculations to be efficient the input data for the created reliability datatypes and values should be used correctly. By employing the
reliability indices, an impartial comparison between various here given options is possible.
