Statistical Analysis of Reliability Indices of Ikeja and Port-Harcourt Distribution Systems

Ganiyu Adedayo Ajenikoko, Victor Uchenna Nwagbara


In the evaluation of the reliability levels of electrical power systems, reliability indices play a vital role.  These indicators are System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI), System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI) and Customer Average Interruption Duration Index (CAIDI).

Statistical analysis of reliability indices of Ikeja and Port-Harcourt distribution system was carried out in this research paper..

Ten years of outage data information from ten selected distribution feeders of Ikeja and Port-Harcourt distribution systems were used in this work. The mean and standard deviation of the basic reliability indices were computed using appropriate mathematical relations as input parameters.

Olowu feeder of Ikeja distribution system recorded the highest mean SAIDI of 01040 compared to all other feeders in the selected distribution system. Customers on this feeder were interrupted for a prolonged time while fewer of the customers were adequately served. 7-UP feeder of Ikeja distribution system had the least mean SAIDI of 0.0693 because customers’ interruption was for a short period of time even though; more customers were being served by the feeder.

Airport of Port-Harcourt distribution system recorded the highest mean SAIDI of 0.1050. More customers were interrupted compared to all other feeders on the distribution system while fewer of them were adequately served. Airport feeder of Port Harcourt distribution system had a least mean SAIFI of 0.1392 because fewer of the customers attached to this feeder were interrupted while many of them were adequately served.

The result of the work will provide a background information for distribution system engineers for adequate planning and effective maintenance of Ikeja and Portharcourt distribution systems.
