Vulnerability of power systems to blackouts
Regulatory mechanisms to mitigate the vulnerability of power systems to blackouts.
The consequences of big blackouts that have recently affected electric systems worldwide motivated to carry out a study in order to determine the vulnerability of electric systems to this type of incidents, and to establish the applicable actions to maintain a reliable operation. The study presented in this paper is based on the lessons learned about prevention and management from the most representative incidents worldwide, as well as from the regulations governing reliability and relevant aspects in some countries.
