Analysis of the Impacts of Distributed Generators on the Reliability Indices of a Power System
This paper presents Monte Carlo simulation algorithm in the reliability evaluation of distribution network of
IEEE-RBTS bus 2. In addition to conventional generators the system has three types of distributed energy resources, solar
photovoltaic, wind turbine and gas turbine. These distributed generators supply the entire load of this distribution system
when there is not enough power generation to supply the feeder loads during a permanent fault. Stochastic models of solar
photovoltaic and wind turbine are presented. These distributed generators are added to the system one after another and
reliability indices are calculated. This study shows that as the number of distributed generators increases the reliability of the
