Ashish Mungekar, Sukanya Naik, Ashit Nair, Rahul Abhyankar, "SOFTWARE BASED CALCULATION OF CAPACITY OUTAGE OF GENERATING UNITS.", VIVA-IJRI Volume 1, Issue 4, Article 129, pp. 1-5, 2021. Published by Computer Engineering Department, VIVA Institute of Technology, Virar, India.


The main theme of the project is to develop software for calculating the reliability & capacity outage table for generation purposes. The method for the calculation is quite lengthy, complex & a high possibility to get a human error during the calculation. The methods used to calculate reliability & capacity outage are Digital Method, Partial Binomial Method & Recursive Method, this method is highly recommended, but can be complex during the actual calculation. To justify the need for this method & also to remove the human error factor during quicker & better calculation, the software is made with the help of the python software. The python-based website will be easily accessible to use to any sort of user, choosing python program was a better option as it does not compile but interprets the calculation are in constant runtime with the input of values, this program helps in developing highly complex calculation which is up to many decimal points.
