This work provides a comprehensive approach to the planning and reliability calculations for the expansion of power generation systems, transmission networks and plant maintenance scheduling. The mathematical and statistical theory required by the reader is introduced and explained by means of examples at the beginning of the text and particular emphasis is given to operational research and reliability calculations. This should provide the reader with a means to become familiarized with the mathematical techniques before applications are introduced. Detailed case studies based on practical power engineering examples are presented in each chapter. The work should be of interest to both students and practising engineers. The techniques discussed in the text are particularly appropriate for the power utility structures being set up throughout western economies.
