Approximating a Loading-Dependent Cascading Failure Model With a Branching Process
Abstract--We quantify the closeness of the approximation between two high-level probabilistic models of cascading failure. In one model called CASCADE, failing components successiv...

An Estimator of Propagation of Cascading Failure
— We suggest a statistical estimator to measure the extent to which failures propagate in cascading failures such as large blackouts. The estimator is tested on a saturating bran...
