Distribution systems—basic techniques and radial networks

Chapter

Abstract

Over the past few decades distribution systems have received considerably less of the attention devoted to reliability modelling and evaluation than have generating systems. The main reasons for this are that generating stations are individually very capital intensive and that generation inadequacy can have widespread catastrophic consequences for both society and its environment. Consequently great emphasis has been placed on ensuring the adequacy and meeting the needs of this part of a power system.
