ANALYSIS OF POWER SYSTEM RESILIENCE TO EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS AND NATURAL DISASTERS. 

Abstract:

The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events and natural disasters pose significant challenges to power systems worldwide. Power outages resulting from these events can have severe consequences, including economic losses, disruption of critical services, and threats to public safety. Therefore, it is crucial to analyze and enhance the resilience of power systems to mitigate the impact of such events.

This study focuses on the analysis of power system resilience to extreme weather events and natural disasters. It aims to investigate the vulnerabilities of power systems, develop strategies for resilience enhancement, and evaluate the effectiveness of these strategies through comprehensive analysis.

The analysis begins with an assessment of the potential risks and impacts of extreme weather events and natural disasters on power systems. This includes evaluating the susceptibility of power infrastructure to various hazards such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, and severe storms. The study considers both the physical damage to power grid components and the operational challenges faced during and after these events.

Next, the research explores various resilience enhancement strategies that can be implemented to mitigate the impact of extreme weather events and natural disasters on power systems. These strategies encompass both proactive measures, such as improved infrastructure design, smart grid technologies, and advanced forecasting techniques, and reactive measures, such as rapid damage assessment, efficient restoration procedures, and emergency response planning.

To evaluate the effectiveness of the resilience enhancement strategies, the study employs advanced modeling and simulation techniques. These techniques consider the interdependencies between different components of the power system, including generation, transmission, and distribution networks. The analysis also incorporates the evaluation of economic factors, such as the cost-benefit analysis of resilience investments and the quantification of losses resulting from power outages.

The findings of this study will provide valuable insights into the vulnerabilities of power systems to extreme weather events and natural disasters. Moreover, it will contribute to the development of evidence-based strategies for enhancing power system resilience, thereby improving the reliability and sustainability of electricity supply in the face of future challenges.

Keywords: Power system resilience, extreme weather events, natural disasters, vulnerability assessment, resilience enhancement strategies, modeling and simulation, cost-benefit analysis, reliability, sustainability.
