This paper investigates the effect of gas outage on the assets of electricity distribution systems as well as the effects of load growth. Owing to the fact that electricity and gas distribution systems supply energy demand independently, in this paper, gas and electricity consumption is analyzed and the overload of electricity distribution systems when cutting off gas current is considered. The findings of this research revealed that overload is a consequence of changes in consumption behavior and leads to casualties in electricity distribution systems. Numerical studies on real information of Tehran Distribution Company at the time of gas pressure fall in 2005 are also provided in this study.


Key words: Gas outage, distribution system, Tehran electricity, casualty, asset management.
