The performance of the system regarding voltage dips is commonly characterized with the SARFIx index, which gives the average frequency of voltage dips. Due to the limited number of measurement points, the actual residual voltages of many nodes are not taken into account when the index is calculated. As it's impossible to measure the dip level at every node of a feeder, the voltage dips occurring at nonmonitored nodes should be estimated from the values recorded at monitored nodes with the consideration of measurement accuracy. This paper proposes a voltage dip state estimation method based on Bayesian inference. The performance of the proposed method is assessed through case study applied in a typical distribution network. Monte Carlo simulation is used to obtain the statistic results. The proposed method shows the flexibility of different measurement quantities and the adequacy for the analysis of distribution networks.
