Abstract

The electric power industry often uses cost/benefit analysis to evaluate system expansion projects. This letter discusses a probabilistic formulation of cost/benefit analysis to incorporate uncertainty in the data used for these studies. A Gaussian statistical model is used and an example is shown relating to distribution engineering.
