 Abstract
This paper presents an analytical technique for reliability evaluation of electrical distribution network (EDN) containing distributed generation (DG). Based on hierarchical levels of circuit breaker controlling zones and feeder sections, a directed-relation-graph (DRG) for an END is formed to describe the hierarchical structure of the EDN. The reliability indices of EDN and load points can be evaluated directly using the formed DRG, and the reliability evaluation of an EDN containing DGs can also be done without re-forming the DRG. The proposed technique incorporates multi-state models of photovoltaic and diesel generations, as well as weather factors. The IEEE-RBTS Bus 6 EDN is used to validate the proposed technique; and a practical campus EDN containing DG was also analyzed using the proposed technique.
