      The goal The aim of the subject is to introduce students to the applications of the general theory of reliability and to the methods for analysis of renewable and nonrenewable systems. Those methods are applied for for modelling of operation of the system components (sources, lines, power plants, networks) and for the modelling of the complex system.
      The outcome Students will be trained to perform various aspects of assessing the reliability of the power system and its parts with emphasis on computer applications.
      Contents of lectures Nonrenewable systems. Renewable systems. Complex systems which can be described using Markov processes. Steady-state reliability indices. Modelling of sources. Modelling of lines. Modelling of power plants. Modelling of power systems. Complex interconnections. Techno-economical analysis. The choice of the optimal solution.
      Contents of exercises Lectures combined with the implementation of a software package for the analysis of power systems reliability.
