Generation system reliability evaluation using a cluster based load model Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper presents a load model based on the concept of clustering. Hourly loads are grouped based on their proximity resulting in nonequispaced load levels. For an equivalent accuracy, this load model uses much fewer states as compared with the conventional load models developed in equispaced discrete steps. The reduction in load states leads to more efficient calculations and a decrease in the computation time. This paper also presents a generalized convolution procedure and then the convolution of generation capacity model and cluster load model is illustrated as a special case of the general convolution procedure. 1989 IEEE
