    Abstract

    To improve economical, technological and social growth of a community, stable and reliable power supply is essential. The electric power companies around the world are working to meet the customer satisfaction with major concern of reducing power failure rates in distribution networks. Appropriate information on systems performance is required to measure and improve the reliability of the system. In this paper, IEEE 13 bus radial distribution network has been converted in to ring and mesh networks to identify their reliability based on reliability indices and factors. Finally, renewable energy sources have been integrated into the ring and mesh networks to determine the networks performance with comparison to the fossil fuel based distributed generation.
