2016 Forced Outage Performance of Transmission Equipment
Analyzes 9 major components of transmission equipment in Canada, including transmission lines, transformer banks, circuit breakers, and cables. This information may be used for performance analysis, decision-making regarding construction or upgrades, and to focus resources for maintenance programs and system planning.
2016 Bulk Electricity System: Delivery Point and Significant Power Interruptions
Provides data on delivery point interruptions, described as the interface between the BES and the Distribution System. Use it to determine the quality and performance of utility service with respect to their transmission systems, by performing analysis on momentary and sustained outages on single, and multi circuits.
2016 Generation Equipment Reliability Report
Contains performance data for over 600 generating units in Canada. The statistics are broken out by fuel type (hydro, thermal, combustion, nuclear) and focus on unit availability and forced outage data, including mean forced outage duration, fail rate, and incapability factor metrics.
2016 Annual Service Continuity Report on Distribution System Performance in Electrical Utilities
Contains information on system reliability and performance. By using these metrics in combination with the cause of an electricity interruption, utility companies can set targets for improving service reliability, develop programs in support of their improvement targets, and make design/build decisions that try to mitigate interruption causes.
