© 2019 IEEE. The increasing frequency of natural disasters and man-made attacks have increased power outages worldwide. Thus, a resilient infrastructure must be constructed to reduce power system damages which directly impacts on the social and economic lives of people. In this paper, a new framework called withstand, respond, adapt, and prevent (WRAP) is presented to evaluate and improve the resilience of distribution networks following a review on existing studies. This resilience enhancement may happen through microgrid and multi- microgrid development in planning or operation stages. Each element of the WRAP framework is responsible for the improvement of the power system resilience in terms of its own attributes and resilience evaluation index. Furthermore, the WRAP framework is defined on the basis of a flowchart with respect to conditional statements. The WRAP framework can be a helpful solution in measuring the resiliency of the power system in terms of robustness, rapidity, adaptability, and predictability. Finally, a case study considering energy-not- supplied as a resilience evaluation index is presented.
