This project focused on transmission system reliability, with the aim of understanding large, cascading failure blackouts and providing tools for analyzing and monitoring their risk. In particular, the project worked to identify the threshold that leads to increased risk of cascading failure, express this threshold in terms of realistic power system parameters and develop criteria and monitoring tools to be applied in real power transmission systems.
