The development of battery energy storage system (BESS) facilitates the integration of renewable energy sources in the distribution system. Both distribution generation and mobile BESS (MBESS) can enhance the reliability of the distribution system. MBESS can facilitate the island operation of microgrids. This study proposes a set of methodologies to assess the reliability of power distribution network with the penetrations of MBESS and intermittent distribution sources. First, an analytic approach based on Markov models is applied for assessing the reliability analysis of the MBESS in distribution system. Then the method is verified by Monte Carlo simulation method and extended to a more complex distribution system. The model of MBESS is developed based on the real operation data. Case study on the IEEE test system has successfully verified the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
