This paper proposes a new fuzzy Petri Net (FPN) modeling technique to achieve the on-line service-restoration plan of the distribution system. Service restoration is a complicated combinatorial optimization problem that often has a great number of candidate solutions to be selected by the dispatchers. According to practical guidelines and experiences of the dispatchers on the service restoration of distribution systems, an FPN model is built to represent the related knowledge and inference scheme about the task of restoration. The proposed FPN model has been practically tested on a typical distribution system of Taiwan Power Company (TPC). Flexibility and effectiveness of the FPN model have been validated as a decision support for restoration scheduling of distribution systems.
