This paper presents a comparison between three different approaches to model the random operation of generation units in power networks for reliability studies. Monte Carlo simulation method is integrated with each of the proposed approaches to calculate the average power not supplied in a given system. The obtained results from each approach are compared to their corresponding values if obtained when seasonal operation is considered.
