Abstract

This letter revisits the calculation of distribution system reliability indices using Monte Carlo simulation. The concept of enhanced samples is introduced in order to reduce calculation time. A bootstrap and compensation method is also presented. These methods are found to enhance accuracy and reduce calculation speed for distribution system reliability calculations.
