This paper presents a new active failure simulation for electric power distribution system reliability assessment. The main principle depends on the first and second order groups established for the nodes existing in basic minimal cut sets. The proposed algorithm is applied to a sample distribution network and three basic reliability indices are calculated. It was seen that the same values are attained with less computational effect.
