Abstract

The response to High Impact Low Frequency (HILF) events in power systems has been the subject of numerous researchers. Events of particular interest include Electromagnetic Pulse, Geomagnetic Disturbances and Cyber Attacks. In order to achieve resilient outcomes following an HILF event, mitigation actions will be required at various facilities within different infrastructure sub-systems. The selection of facilities for mitigation actions may occur in isolation or using inter-infrastructure prioritization. Multiple attributes are often used to order the various alternatives in ranking problems; however, both hierarchical or network-based approaches may be applied. The Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) uses pair-wise comparisons for alternatives to estimate criteria weights and resulting rankings. Alternatively, the Analytical Network Process (ANP) uses clusters and nodes to facilitate more complex structures. This paper provides a comparison of resiliency outcomes resulting from AHP and ANP methods and provides a framework for analyzing outcomes in emergency management in power systems. Selection of the most effective prioritization method will assist emergency managers and infrastructure operators in optimizing resiliency outcomes.
