The knowledge of the reliability of distribution networks and systems is important consideration in the system planning and operations for development and improvements of power distribution systems. To achieve the target as minimum interruptions as possible to customers, utilities must strive to improve the reliability but at the same time reduce cost. It is a known fact that most of customer interruptions are caused by the failure in distribution system. However, valid data are not easy to collect and the reliability performance statistic not easy to obtain. There is always uncertainty associated with the distribution network reliability. For evaluation and analysis of reliability, it is necessary to have data on the number and range of the examined piece of equipment. It’s important to have database for failure rates, repair time and unavailability for each component in distribution network. These studies present the analysis of distribution networks and systems by using analytical methods in SESB’s distribution substations and network systems. These studies use analytical methods to determine the reliability indices and effect of distribution substation configuration and network to the reliability indices performance. Then the result obtained will be compare with the actual data from SESB to determine the area of improvement required for mutual benefit and also for improvement in the future studies.
