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...

A probabilistic loading-dependent model of cascading failure and possible implications for blackouts
Catastrophic disruptions of large, interconnected infrastructure systems are often due to cascading failure. For example, large blackouts of electric power systems are typically c...

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...
