AbstractThis report presents a methodology for computing the benefits and costs of distribution management systems (DMS) advanced applications, consistent with the Foundational Report Series: Advanced Distribution Management Systems for Grid Modernization. It suggests an approach for monetizing the “functional” benefits, expressed in non-monetary terms, such as System Average Interruption Duration Index/System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIDI/SAIFI) reduction and improved efficiency, using commonly available technical and financial parameters. It offers a model for individual utilities to determine the estimated costs and benefits using their own specific data.  This is one of seven reports on DMS, their functions, implementation, and importance for grid modernization. The reports on DMS in this numbered series of Argonne reports are as follows: 1. Importance of DMS for Distribution Grid Modernization (ANL/ESD-15/16)  2. DMS Functions (ANL/ESD-15/17) 3. High-Level Use Cases for DMS (ANL/ESD-15/18) 4. Business Case Calculations for DMS (ANL/ESD-17/3) (this report) 5. Implementation Strategy for DMS (To Be Published) 6. DMS Integration of Microgrids and DER (To Be Published) 7. DMS Industry Survey (To Be Published)
