Operating considerations in reliability modeling of interconnected systems-an analytical approach Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper presents an analytical method which can incorporate both operating considerations and interconnection constraints in multiarea reliability evaluation. The model, called OPRINS, is a substantial extension and generalization of concepts contained in the single area OPCON model and the decomposition-simulation approach for multi-area reliability evaluation. These new techniques have been implemented in two computer programs called OPRINS-A and OPRINS-P for the study of interconnected systems operating in area or pool modes for commitment of generating units. Some system studies are described which compare the results obtained from this approach with the comparative sequential simulation models. 1988 IEEE
