This paper analyses the reliability of smart grid (SG) networks by integrating distributed renewable energy resources (DRERs) and storage devices (SDs) into the power grid. In this paper, three types of power grid systems are analyzed: 1) conventional power grid 2) power grid with DRERs 3) power grid integrated with both DRERs and SDs. The performance evaluation is carried out based on the IEEE 9 bus system, where we employ one conventional power generator, solar and wind power generators as the DRERs, and one SD. The results demonstrate that the integration of DRERs and SDs into the power grid can provide more reliable power to customers while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy wastage.
Q1: What kind of method did you use to calculate reliability indices? Analytical or Monte Carlo method
A1: Analytical method has been used due to its reduced computational time.
