This paper presents a new approach for the evaluation of substation and switching station reliability performance in terms of outage frequencies and durations. All realistic component failure modes are included in the reliability predictions. The computer program described in the paper is fairly general. It performs failure modes and effects analysis and provides a concise and orderly description of the various combination of occurrences within the system that could result in an interruption. The application of the program is illustrated by considering two practical system examples. The concepts described are quite general and can be easily extended to the reliability evaluation of other power systems configurations.
