Abstract

Concerns about the power outages caused by extreme weather events have led the study of grid resilience. Among the grid resilience studies, this paper presents an overview to evaluate and improve grid resilience through the analysis of determinants of the impact and the grid capability. The impact is determined by the extreme weather events, grid exposure, and grid vulnerability. Whereas, the determinants of the grid capability are physical durability, operational versatility, and rehabilitation capacity. Conceptual knowledge for quantifying the impact and the grid capability is also presented. Then, some improvement strategies to reduce the impact and to improve the grid capability based on their determinants are discussed. The study of the impact and the grid capability provides a preliminary guideline to plan appropriate grid resilience improvement strategies. View Full-Text
