ABSTRACT
Reliability is a key factor aspect of power system design and planning. In this paper we present a reliability analysis after and before connecting a Distributed Generation on radial distribution systems. The distribution systems on which calculations are carry out and data index of failure rate and repair time are taken as default data. The placement of distributed generation and its effects on reliability is investigated. A power flow calculation is used to check the power handling constraints. Reliability indices is developed and reliability index is proposed for load points and the overall system
