Abstract

Nowadays, the power systems and distribution network’s reliability are critical issues from electric companies’ and consumers’ perspectives. As suppliers of the power required by the consumers, electric companies are trying to deliver the power to customers on a continuous and reliable basis. The existence of customers’ power interruptions causes damage to the customer; moreover, it may cause damage to the electric company due to the lack of energy sales during the hours of a power outage. In this paper, the reliability issue was investigated by examining the two indices EENS and ECOST, on the test distribution network to evaluate the impact of electricity prices in TOU demand response on the reliability of the distribution network has been investigated. Also find the optimal electricity prices for the best distribution network reliability. In this research, simulation studies were conducted on the Roy Billinton Test System (RBTS) distribution network using the GAMS software. From the analysis of the simulation results, the distribution grid reliability was improved by implementing optimal electricity prices of the TOU demand response program.
