—The ground truth for cascading failure in power system can only be obtained through a detailed dynamic model involving nonlinear differential and algebraic equations whose solution process is computationally expensive. This has prohibited adoption of such models for cascading failure simulation. To solve this, we propose a fast cascading failure simulation approach based on implicit Backward Euler method (BEM) with stiff decay property. Unfortunately, BEM suffers from hyperstability issue in… 



Fast parallelized algorithms for on-line extended-term dynamic cascading analysis

A parallel strategy intended for deployment on the super computer, Blue Gene/L, to simulate the power system dynamics, which can be described as a set of differential algebraic equations (DAEs) to deal with DAE stiffness problems and fully capture benefits of explicit and implicit integration methods.

Dynamic Modeling of Cascading Failure in Power Systems

This work presents a dynamic simulation model of both power networks and protection systems, which can simulate a wider variety of cascading outage mechanisms relative to existing quasi-steady-state (QSS) models.

Inclusion of Pre-Existing Undervoltage Load Shedding Schemes in AC-QSS Cascading Failure Models

A suitable dynamic cascade model with appropriate limits and protection details that can selectively capture UVLS action is presented, thereby revealing the proximate ground truth.

Simplified time-domain simulation of detailed long-term dynamic models

The paper revisits the merits of the Backward Euler method and proposes a strategy to control its step size, with the objective of filtering out fast stable oscillations and focusing on the aperiodic behaviour of the system.

Power systems are vulnerable to extreme contingencies (like an outage of a major generating substation) that can cause significant generation and load loss and can lead to further cascading outages

Dynamically induced cascading failures in power grids

This article focuses on electrical transmission networks and introduces a framework that takes into account both the event-based nature of cascades and the essentials of the network dynamics, finding that transients of the order of seconds in the flows of a power grid play a crucial role in the emergence of collective behaviors.

Benchmarking Quasi-Steady State Cascading Outage Analysis Methodologies

Various methodologies exist for assessing the risk of cascading outage in power systems, differing in the cascading mechanisms considered and in the way they are modeled. These methodologies can be

Developing a dynamic model of cascading failure for high performance computing using trilinos

The general form of the algorithm in use for this simulation involves simulating a power grid as a set of differential, algebraic and discrete equations and details about the implementation using the Trilinos software libraries are provided.

A Two-Level Probabilistic Risk Assessment of Cascading Outages

Cascading outages in power systems can lead to major power disruptions and blackouts and involve a large number of different mechanisms. The typical development of a cascading outage can be split in

A new eigen-analysis method of steady-state stability studies for large power systems: S matrix method

The authors discuss an advanced version of the S matrix method, an eigenvalue technique for the analysis of the steady-state stability (or the stability against small signals) of large power systems.
