The System Average Interruption Duration Index (SAIDI)[1] is commonly used as a reliability indicator by electric power utilities. SAIDI is the average outage duration for each customer served, and is calculated as:

where is the number of customers and is the annual outage time for location , and is the total number of customers served. In other words,

SAIDI is measured in units of time, often minutes or hours. It is usually measured over the course of a year, and according to IEEE Standard 1366-1998 the median value for North American utilities is approximately 1.50 hours.

Comparison of SAIDI by country[edit]

The following is a table of SAIDI for different countries; the share of renewable energy (gross electricity consumption) is also given:[2]
