The major goal of an electric power system is to provide its customers with a good service at a minimum cost and an acceptable reliability level. Power system reliability is based on two basic considerations, namely, adequacy and quality. This study investigates how to improve composite power system adequacy in the long- term. Specifically, to enhance system reliability level by using Power System Simulator for Engineering (PSSE), Static Var Compensators (SVCs) can be installed on each bus for the IEEERTS. It has been observed that the Expected Energy not Served (EENS) is reduced for all buses in the IEERTS, which means that the overall system reliability level has improved.
