Parallel Monte Carlo approach for distribution reliability assessment
Rights accessRestricted access - publisher's policy
This study presents the basic features of a Monte Carlo approach for reliability evaluation of distribution systems without embedded generation using parallel computation. The test system is represented by means of a three-phase model that includes protective devices and is simulated during one year. The procedure has been implemented in an open environment in which OpenDSS is driven from MATLAB. The document includes a detailed description of the procedure, and some results derived from the simulation of an overhead distribution test system.
