Comments:
The paper presents a survey and a discussion of indexes
that can be used to assess the reliability of a smart
energy distribution infrastructure. Since the distribution
network is taken into account, one key discussion carried
out in the paper refers to distributed generation and
storage technologies.

The paper is well written and easy to read.
It is questionable whether the
paper would fit in the scope of Track 10 of the ETFA
conference. The topics of the track, in fact, are cyber-
physical systems. This is a topic that is, by the way,
rather strictly related to smart energy grids. However, a
reference to CPSs appears just once in the paper, as an
indication that the paper looks poorly related with the
topics of the track.

Overall, the paper does not provide significant results,
and sound rather out of scope in this track.

Comments:
This paper presents a survey of reliability metrics
applied in the context of energy distribution networks.

Despite being generally well written, it is a survey and
personally I beleive it is not well suitde to a
conference. The authors should consider a journal instead.
See for example the surveys in references
[1,2,3,9,20,22,28] that are all journal papers. Anyway,
this is a matter to the track/program chairs.

Most importantly, the paper addresses reliability issues
in the specific context of smart grids and not really any
topic commonly addressed in CPS tracks/conferences. Thus,
I believe the paper is out of context in this track.

Also, (page 2 bottom), saying the major reliability
problems occur in the DS requires a reference.

In the paper objectives, (2nd, stil in page 2) saying that
with DGs the outages of DNs increase seems a contradiction
with previous statements saying that DG can improve back-
up and restoration of DNs.

"When more detailed information is needed" (beginning of
page 3) it seems the reference to sequential MC should be
non-sequential MC, is it?
