Experiences with International Projects on Power Grid Resilience
26 Sep 2019
IEEE Smart Grid Webinars
Recent climate-change driven extreme weather events and natural hazards have placed resilience in the spotlight of key stakeholders and policy-makers in the power system community worldwide. There is a growing concern over the critical need to address and boost resilience to such black sky hazards. This webinar will share experiences and applications from relevant national and international research projects in the area of resilient power systems planning and operation. It will cover conceptual frameworks for better understanding the multi-faceted concept of resilience and advanced quantitative techniques based on specifically designed resilience metric systems, as well as risk-based and integrated planning approaches to support the decision-making on designing resilient power grids. The webinar will conclude with insights on activities from national and international professional bodies, further highlighting the recognition by the global power system community of the pressing need to move towards a more resilience-oriented engineering.
