Abstract

The target of any power system is to deliver stable, clean and cheap electrical power to the customer. This paper offers two independent approaches to simulate the operation of the generating units in a power network. The first methodology depends on the load variation in each season while the other one is random through a certain sequence. Using the proposed approaches a comparison between the different suggested PDF that describes the failure and repair for any component is made. The simulation is done based on Monte Carlo method through a small radial system and the IEEE 13 node test system.
