Studying the propagation of failure probabilities in interconnected systems like that of electrical distribution networks is traditionally performed by means of Monte Carlo simulations. In this paper, we propose a procedure to create a model of the system in a quantum computer using a restricted representation of Bayesian networks. Some examples of this implementation on sample models are presented using Qiskit and tested using both quantum simulators and IBM Quantum hardware. Results show a correlation in the precision of the results when considering the number of Monte Carlo iterations alongside the sum of shots in a single quantum circuit execution.
