Intentional islanding and adaptive load shedding to avoid cascading outages
"System disturbances that involve several interconnected areas across the grid are uncommon, but they occur more frequently than predicted. Some are weather-related events; while some are system initiated cascading events that can be prevented. The power grid is capable of surviving one or two contingency events, but with multiple contingencies the system may collapse if the disturbance is severe. The transmission systems of today are more liable to cascading outages than they have ever been in the past. Effective countermeasures are therefore a necessity. Determination of the line outages that lead to disastrous consequences, forced islanding schemes and load shedding techniques have been explored individually. A plan integrating all the three defense mechanisms is studied"--Abstract, leaf iii.
