Course Contents
This course focuses on applied probability theory for reliability analysis of sustainable electrical power systems. It starts with a review on the basics of probability theory, the definition of reliability indicators, and recent developments for deterministic and probabilistic reliability analysis. Next, various reliability assessment methods for smaller systems (e.g. fault-tree analysis, Markov models), and for larger networks (e.g. state enumeration, Monte Carlo simulation) are introduced and discussed. As accurate failure statistics are the base of any reliability calculation, the latest state-of-the-art practices for collection and modelling of failure statistics will also be addressed. Besides, the application of the studied models and methods on various benchmark systems will be carried out in order to assess risks for security of supply as well as to elucidate possible mitigation measures.
Study Goals
After attending this course, the students are able to:
LO1: Describe the concept of power system reliability and place it in the context of recent developments and future challenges.
LO2: Collect and accurately model failure statistics.
LO3: Evaluate the reliability of small and large systems.
LO4: Define countermeasures to mitigate reliability threats.
Education Method
Theory and exercise lectures (4 hours/week).
Assessment
Digital exam.
