Abstract

The ability of High Impact Low Frequency (HILF) events to adversely affect electrical networks has been acknowledged by a number of governmental agencies, regulatory entities, and industrial trade organizations. Questions persist regarding which mitigation decisions will best aid resiliency in such a protracted electric outage scenario? To address this question, the development of a system dynamics modeling framework to evaluate interconnected infrastructures is critical for societal health and well-being. The modeling process utilizes four distinct phases of (1) Defining system structure, (2) Representation of delays, (3) Development of a system dynamics model, and (4) Application of potential mitigation strategies to represent the post-event behavior over time.
