- The present assignment in installing the number of switches for distribution line was made on the basis of a normal feeder capacity 7,000kVA in KEPCO(Korea Electric Power Corporation), Korea. But the normal capacity is revised to 10,000kVA in 1998. Even increasing limit of the operating capacity of the distribution lines enables us to give some benefit for the operation flexibility and investment cost of the distribution system. It is disadvantageous in the viewpoint of supply reliability. In distribution systems, switches are equipped to improve the reliability of distribution systems by minimizing the outage section due to fault and maintenance. Utility generally improves the reliability by minimizing the length of outage section, which is caused by fault and maintenance, through switch equipment on distribution system. In order to cope with the changes such as operation capacity, it is necessary to study whether the present criteria is reasonable or not, also to confirm whether the present criteria of installing switches in line is improved or not. In this study, we proposes the number of switch per feeder on the basis of present operation capacity in distribution system.
