he authors introduce a methodology which quantifies medium-voltage (MV) feeder reliability in the form of commonly used indices. The contribution of the proposed methodology focuses on the modelling not only of the grid itself but also of the detailed actual operational practices of the distribution system operator (DSO), taking into consideration the specific parameters of the examined network. By doing so, the influence of diverse reliability enhancement measures on different feeders can be evaluated and assessed. The method is tested using real (MV) feeders, considering as measures the installation of protection units and remote control capabilities to the switches. Furthermore, by considering the cost of protection and remotely controlled units, the proposed methodology performs techno-economic analyses to assess the trade-offs between enhancing grid reliability and increasing costs, serving as a decision-making tool for modern DSOs Show more
