DESCRIPTION:

Electric power utilities are facing new challenges and problems in the changing utility environment. The course is aimed at providing an in depth introduction to the range of probabilistic aspects used in the assessment of electric power system reliability. The basic principles of reliability evaluation along with their application, current practices and solution methods in generation, transmission and distribution systems will be discussed.
