Certain generation planning evaluation indices, notably loss of load probability (LOLP) and frequency/duration, are shown in certain cases to classify generating systems with fewer and larger units as more reliable than systems with more and smaller units of the same total capacity. Supply convex indices, such as the energy or capacity deficiency type, are shown never to exhibit this undesirable behavior. Implications to generation planning evaluation are discussed.
