As technologically advanced distribution system operates economically with high rate of availability of the system, it is essential to integrate the analysis of systems reliability and availability into the process of planning and designing the structure of a transmission system. This paper discusses the availability modeling and analysis in distribution lines. From the data analysis, it was found that Markov model becomes right choice to carry out the investigation. The study involves live case of Goa Electricity Department. The Markovian state transition matrix involved in stochastic modeling has been solved by developing algorithm which is in turn coded in MATLAB 7.0. A Simulation model was developed and analyzed in GPSS World. The model was applied to a live case. Appropriate results and discussion carried out with sensitivity analysis are presented in the paper.
