Risk management applied to electrical distribution systems
Paper in proceedings, 2009
This paper summarizes results from a research project investigating risk management applied to electrical distribution systems (EDS) in Sweden. New incentives have motivated the distribution system operators (DSOs) to consider more comprehensive analysis methods. The project focuses on investigating long term consequences of different project- and maintenance plans. This paper shortly describes related research, incentives, results from an application study and future work. The main conclusion is that there is a trend that DSOs use more complex risk management approaches as a result of new incentives.
