Sandia National Laboratories computer scientists have been developing a "black start" computer model to help grid operators quickly restore power after a disruption.
The model integrates a restoration-optimization model with a model of how grid operators would make decisions when lacking full knowledge of all generators and distribution lines.
Simulated black starts induced by man-made disruptions like cyberattacks also are supported.
Sandia's Bryan Arguello said the restoration-optimization algorithm evaluates the grid and its elements to formulate the fastest power restoration scenario, then compares it to physical limits to determine feasibility.
The model applies these results to a physical simulation of the grid and its dynamic response to operators' actions.
