A key to cascading outage defense is the level of grid operator situational awareness. Severe disturbances and complex unfolding of post-disturbance phenomena, including interdependent events, demand critical actions to be taken on the part of the operators, thus making operators dependent on decision support tools and automatic controls. In other industries (e.g., airline, nuclear, process control), control operators employ computational capabilities that help them predict system response and identify corrective actions. Power system operators should have a similar capability with online simulation tools.The one-line diagram in Fig. 5 shows part of a real power system with bus bar segment BS-7 out for maintenance. Every component is tagged with a unique ID. Each of the components other than a bus section connects two different busanbsp;...
