Abstract

This special report is the result of a collaboration between academics and practitioners. It aims to provide a synthetic overview of the cascading effects caused by wide-area power failures, and to define the recurrent impacts and sources of escalation. It provides a reference for the training and the situational awareness of decision makers and emergency operators. The format uses bullet points and examples to facilitate reading in conditions of limited availability of time. The following topics have been developed:- ⚫ A definition of cascading effects. ⚫ An introduction for of wide area power failures (PF) policies and practices. ⚫ Illustrative examples. ⚫ A table listing cascading effects and escalations caused by wide area PF. ⚫ Resources for training and essential references for further reading.
