    Utilization time of maximum power losses (UTL) has been applied for determination of energy losses in power grids. The UTL is a parameter allowing for accurate estimation of energy losses. Using the maximum load time for UTL determination, better results can be achieved by decomposing the load...

    We give an overview of a complex systems approach to large blackouts of electric power transmission systems caused by cascading failure. Instead of looking at the details of particular blackouts, we study the statistics and dynamics of series of blackouts with approximate global models. Blackout...

    Analysis of blackouts has shown that emergency situations are usually associated with overloading of dangerous cross-sections, which causes cascade tripping of a power system's elements. This inevitably leads to the outage of power stations even before the stability has been lost, and, as a...
