Using historical utility outage data to compute overall transmission grid resilience

Given increasing risk from climate-induced natural hazards, there is growing interest in the development of methods that can quantitatively measure resilience in power systems. This work quantifies resilience in electric power transmission networks in a new and comprehensive way that can represent the multiple processes of resilience. A novel aspect of this approach is the use of empirical data to develop the probability distributions that drive the model. This paper demonstrates the approach by measuring the impact of one potential improvement to a power system. Specifically, we measure the impact of additional distributed generation on power system resilience.
