The paper deals with the impact of renewable energy sources on reliability of distribution networks. It is determined through four case studies in which reliability indices are calculated. Island mode operation in the network is allowed with several assumptions. The authors assumed that the reliability of the system can be improved by islanded operation of distributed generation and showed an advantage of proposed islanding in relation to supply availability.
