Reliability analysis in Electrical Distribution System considering preventive Maintenance Applications on Circuit Breakers

By Mahmud Fotuhi-firuzabad and Saeed Afshar

Abstract

Abstract—This paper presents the results of a preventive maintenance application-based study and modeling of failure rates in breakers of electrical distribution systems. This is a critical issue in the reliability assessment of a system. In the analysis conducted in this paper, the impacts of failure rate variations caused by a preventive maintenance are examined. This is considered as a part of a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) application program. A number of load point reliability indices is derived using the mathematical model of the failure rate, which is established using the observed data in a distribution system. Keywords—Reliability-Centered Maintenance (RCM), failure rate, preventive maintenance (PM), Distribution System Reliability
