Abstract

Keen interest in the development and utilization of wind-based distributed generations (DGs) has been currently observed worldwide for several reasons. Among those is controlling the emission of environmentally harmful substances, limiting the growth in energy costs associated with the use of conventional energy sources and encouraging the independent power producers for participation in the electricity market system. One of the most important issues is to quantitatively assess the impact of such type of DGs on the distribution system reliability. This paper presents a probabilistic technique to evaluate the distribution system reliability utilizing segmentation concept and a novel constrained Grey predictor technique for wind speed profile estimation.
