dc.description.abstractWe seek to determine the reliability of Intelligent Power Routers (IPR) and the reliability change of an electric power system (PS) operated with and without IPR. The IPR is our module to provide scalable coordination in a distributed model for the next- generation PS. To calculate the change in PS’ reliability operated with and without IPR, the IPR failure mechanisms and probabilities must be determined. Since there is no data on IPR reliability its failure mechanisms and probabilities will be estimated. We establish the failure modes for each IPR’s element to estimate the IPR reliability, and simulate the behavior of a PS to measure its reliability change. The method used to capture this change, known as risk assessment, uses the probability of occurrence of an event and the impact that it produce. The procedure is discussed, and an example is presented using the 179-bus system for a given operating point.en_US
dc.description.abstractBuscamos determinar la confiabilidad de un Enrutador Inteligente de Potencia (IPR, por sus siglas en ingles) y el cambio en confiabilidad en un sistema de potencia eléctrica operado con y sin IPR. El IPR es nuestro módulo para proveer coordinación en un modelo distribuido para la próxima generación de la red de potencia. Para calcular el cambio en confiabilidad en un sistema de potencia operado con y sin IPR necesitamos determinar los mecanismos y probabilidades de falla del IPR. Debido a que no hay datos de la confiabilidad de un IPR sus mecanismos y probabilidades de falla serán estimados. Establecemos los modos de falla para cada componente del IPR para estimar la confiabilidad del IPR, y simular el comportamiento de un sistema de potencia para medir el cambio en su confiabilidad. El método usado para capturar ese cambio, conocido como evaluación de riesgo, usa la probabilidad de ocurrencia de un evento y el impacto q este produce. El procedimiento es discutido, y un ejemplo es presentado usando el sistema se 179 barras para cierto punto de operación.en_US
