This paper presents a new method regarding fault distribution modeling for the stochastic prediction study of voltage sags in the distribution system. 2-D stochastic models for fault modeling make it possible to obtain the fault performance for the whole system of interest, which helps to obtain not only sag performance at individual locations but also system sag performance through system indices of voltage sag. By using the bivariate normal distribution for fault distribution modeling, this paper estimates the influence of model parameters on system voltage sag performance. The paper also develops the modified SARFI(x) regarding phase loads that create better estimation for voltage sag performance for the distribution system.
