The requirements for extensive justification of new facilities and emphasis on the optimization of system cost and reliability are steadily increasing. Customer interruption cost analysis provides valuable input to electric power supply reliability worth assessment. This paper presents both a generalized analytical approach and a time sequential Monte Carlo simulation technique for evaluating the customer interruption cost in complex radial distribution systems. Studies are conducted on two practical distribution systems. The results obtained using the analytical technique incorporating average restoration times are compared with those obtained using the time sequential simulation method and random restoration times. The effects on customer interruption cost indices associated with alternate supply and protection devices are also considered
