Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete beskriver hur en Monte Carlo simulering (MCS) kan användas för tillförlitlighetsanalys av ett eldistributionssystem. Metoden har implementerats i verktyget RADPOW som nu kan utföra både analytiska och numeriska beräkningar. Angreppssättet för att utveckla denna MCS metod i RADPOW innefattade följande aktiviteter:

• Vidareutvecklade av RADPOW med införandet av ett grafiskt användargränssnitt för Windows.

• Utveckling och implementering av en iterativ analytisk metod för känslighetsanalys av eldistributionssystem i RADPOW.

• Utveckling och implementering av MCS metoden i RADPOW, vilken placerades i en fristående modul kallad Sim.

Den implementerade MCS metoden har validerats i en jämförande studie innefattande två testsystem med datorprogrammet NEPLAN. Resultat från denna studie visar att MCS metoden ger samma resultat som den analytiska metoden i RADPOW och det kommersiella verktyget NEPLAN.

Abstract [en]

This master thesis describes an implementation of a Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) method for reliability assessment of electrical distribution systems. The method has been implemented in the reliability assessment tool RADPOW which now is able to perform both analytical and simulation evaluations. The main contributions within this thesis includes the following activities;

• Further development of RADPOW by the introducing of a graphical user interface for Windows.

• Development and implementation of an analytical sensitivity analysis routine for RADPOW.

• Development and implementation of a sequential MCS method in RADPOW in a stand alone module referred to as Sim.

The implemented MCS method has been validated in a comparable study for two case systems by a commercial software NEPLAN. Results shows that the implemented MCS method provides the same results as the analytical method in RADPOW and the NEPLAN software.
