On March 22, the CFWG kicked off its 2021 Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner & Learn Series with a presentation of Professor Janusz Bialek (Newcastle University and Skoltech) about the “System separation in the Continental Europe Synchronous Area on 8 January 2021”. The slides are available in this post.
At the 2018 PES General Meeting in Portland, the working group organized a panel session focused on the challenges of cascading: modeling, data and interdependence. We had an excellent group of panelists who sparked some important discussion. Here is the overview of the panel: Reliability standards increasingly require transmission utilities and regional transmission operators to… Read more
We have uploaded the presentations from our panel “Cascading Outages – Dynamics, Protection, Validation and Data” at the 2016 PESGM in Boston, MA. See the Presentations page for details and slides. Thank you to all the attendees for good questions, discussion, and collaboration.
IEEE PES GM 2015 Tutorial “Understanding Cascading Phenomenon: Methodologies and Industry Practice for Analysis of Cascading Failures” Date: July 29, 2015 Tutorial Overview: Cascading failures present severe threats to power grid reliability and security, and thus reducing their likelihood, and timely detection, mitigation and prevention of cascades are of significant importance, and believed to be… Read more
The Cascading Failure Task Force is planning to host both a tutorial and a panel session on cascading failure in power systems. Stay tuned for more information.
Presentations from our panel session entitled, “Mitigation and Prevention of Cascading Outages Methodologies and Practical Applications,” at the 2013 IEEE PES General meeting in Vancouver, BC are now available from the Presentations page.
If you are a member of this task force and would like to be able to post information to this, our public web site, please send an e-mail to Paul Hines. All user-names will be the combination of your first and last names with no spaces. Once requested you can set your own password.
The following presentations were presented at our joint session on cascading failure risk analysis at the IEEE PES General Meeting in Detroit, July 2011. Survey of Tools for Risk Assessment of Cascading Outages Risk Assessment of Cascading Outages: Part 1 – Overview of Methodologies Issues in integration of risk of cascading outages into utility… Read more
