  title={Predicting Failures in Power Grids: The Case of Static Overloads},
  author={Michael Chertkov and Feng Pan and Mikhail G. Stepanov},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid},
Here we develop an approach to predict power grid weak points, and specifically to efficiently identify the most probable failure modes in static load distribution for a given power network. This approach is applied to two examples: Guam's power system and also the IEEE RTS-96 system, both modeled within the static dc power flow model. Our algorithm is a power network adaption of the worst configuration heuristics, originally developed to study low probability events in physics and failures in… CONTINUE READING
