This paper presents a comparative study of regulating policies for interruption of supply in Sweden and UK. The two regulating regimes have been applied for a case study with a real rural electrical distribution system in Sweden, Flymen. The Swedish and UK regulations state that the distribution system operators (DSO) should restore power delivery to customers within 12 and 18 hours respectively for normal weather conditions. If this could not be fulfilled the DSOs are opposed to different predetermined penalty payments to the customers.
In a comparative case study of Flymen the Swedish model (GL) gives a 68% higher compensation to customers than the UK model (GS) for a 30 hours interruption of supply during normal weather conditions. Historical interruption data for the same system gives a 75% higher compensation with the Swedish model (GL) than the UK model (GS). The main conclusion from the comparative study is that the Swedish GL model provides a higher compensation for interruptions of supply to customers than the UK GS model.
