The reliability of a distribution system can be considered from the point of view of a particular customer or from the entire supply system, e.g. average interruption frequency (SAIFI) and system average interruption duration (SAIDI). The reliability indices which are referring at the interruption frequency are mainly influenced by the adopted operational configuration and the minimization in operation of SAIFI represents an important aim. A substantial change in the power distribution systems behavior appears because of the large-scale introduction of distributed generation as distributed generators connected directly to the main distribution system or inside of microgrids which are also connected to the main distribution system. In the paper, authors propose an original fuzzy based method for the estimation of the average interruption frequency on distribution smart grids.
