GRID RESILIENCE 2016 - Security and vulnerabilities of the electrical system

The present work, resulting from the activities of the IEEE PES “Understanding, Prediction, Mitigation and Restoration of Cascading Failures” Working Group of the “Computer and Analytical Methods” Subcommittee, synthesizes how to compare and validate tools for cascading failure analysis, summarizes and reviews the cascading test cases that are available to the international community, and makes recommendations for improving the state of the art.

Cascading failure in electric power systems is a complicated problem for which a variety of models, software tools and analytical tools have been proposed, but are difficult to verify. Benchmarking and validation are necessary to understand how closely a particular modeling method corresponds to reality, what engineering conclusions may be drawn from a particular tool, and what improvements need to be made to the tool in order to reach valid conclusions.

The community needs to develop the test cases tailored to cascading that are central to practical benchmarking and validation. In this paper, the IEEE PES working group on cascading failure reviews and synthesizes how benchmarking and validation can be done for cascading failure analysis, summarizes and reviews the cascading test cases that are available to the international community, and makes recommendations for improving the state of the art.
