The authors illustrate a procedure for adequacy evaluation of a composite generation and transmission system containing a direct current (DC) link. The transportation model option of the composite reliability (COMREL) program, developed at the University of Saskatchewan, is used to evaluate the composite system adequacy indices. The IEEE Reliability Test System (RTS) is augmented by adding a DC link and is used as the test system. The composite system load point and the overall system indices are calculated to quantify the adequacy of the composite system. The basic COMREL program was modified to accept a remote generation source connected to a composite system through a DC link. The analysis involves the construction of a generating capacity model at the remote bus and the movement of each generating capacity state through the DC line contingency state, without violating the carrying capability of the transmission line state or the generator state capability restriction
