This paper discusses the problem of reliability of the Polish medium voltage power lines. It presents the benchmarking of power lines and values of SAIDI. The probability density distribution of the medium voltage lines length as well as selected indicators of the MV power lines reliability, being operated by the distribution companies under test, are also introduced. The analysis is based on the actual MV lines and uses the nonparametric method of kernel density estimation.
Keywords: radial distribution network, reliability of MV line, kernel density estimation, SAIDI
