Abstract
With regulation stimulating grid reliability, Liander (one of the Dutch DSOs) has always sought to reduce the number of component failures and to improve the outage restoration time. Traditionally, generic cost-benefit analyses and roll-out strategies have been developed for individual reliability improvement options. Recently, Liander has decided to create a model to calculate integral business cases, taking the actual grid topology, the different reliability improvement options and the life cycle costs of the components, into account. The model determines the optimal combination of reliability improvement options and presents the corresponding (positive) business case. This enables policy makers to determine the best roll-out strategy and it supports grid planners to efficiently design for increased reliability in a given MV topology.
