AbstractThis article proposes a methodology for reconfiguration of sets of consumer units considering the contiguity of areas. The first part of the methodology consists of collecting historical data on occurrences that caused the interruption of electricity for groups of consumers, identifying the average interruption times and the frequency with which they occurred throughout the analyzed period. The objective of the present study is to identify possible adjustments in the configuration of the sets of consumers in order to obtain as a result the reduction of the values of the collective indicators of Equivalent Interruption Duration per Consumer (EID) and Equivalent Interruption Frequency per Consumer (EIF), which impacts the amounts of compensation (penalties) paid by the concessionaire for not meeting the limits stipulated for the collective performance indicators of the sets. To validate the proposed methodology, data from an electricity distributor located in Rio Grande do Sul were used, the results show that a reduction in the values of the collective indicators (EID and EIF) was achieved through the union of two substations distributing the total of consumer units of the new set the values of their respective individual indicators.
