Data Structures in Power System Reliability Estimation

Stella Morris and Morris A.G. Ezra

In this paper a technique for the estimation of power system reliability using fault tree analysis (FTA) and the concept of data structures is presented. The proposed approach for representing the fault trees uses data structures concept and dynamic storage allocation which overcomes the dimensionality problem. This approach reduces the computational complexity and execution time. This method can efficiently handle systems having any number of cut-sets between the input-output nodes depending upon the available computer memory. Three sample power system networks are considered to test the efficiency of the algorithm developed and the computation times with different approaches are compared.
