Intended learning outcomes
The course is aimed to you that want to perform reliability assessment for electrical power systems. The goal for the course is to give the participants knowledge on how to use reliability analysis as a tool for decision support during design, operation and maintenance of electric power systems. The application studies are focused on electrical distribution systems.
The student should after passed course be able to use reliability assessment as a tool for decision support for planning and operation of the electric power system. After completed course the participants shall achieved knowledge to:
- Describe the fundamental definitions and concepts for reliability assessment
- Analyze a system using the following techniques for reliability assessment:
- Network modeling
- Component importance techniques
- Markov modeling
- Lifetime models
- Analyze an electrical distribution system with the above described methods using NEPLAN.
- Formulate an optimization problem for maintenance planning and propose solution approach.
- Formulate a Life cycle cost model (LCC).
- Discuss power system regulatory issues.
