This paper presents the application of fuzzy clustering technique on large load data to greatly reduce calculations in reliability evaluation of restructured power systems. The method involves: first grouping a large load data into few clusters, secondly calculating partial membership value of each load point in each cluster, thirdly calculating reliability indices for each cluster and finally, expressing the reliability indices at each load point in terms of the reliability index of the cluster and the membership value that the load point has in that cluster. A non-sequential Monte Carlo simulation technique based on this framework has been proposed to evaluate the customer reliability of restructured power systems.
