Synposis of the talk:

Frequency, voltage, customer interruption. What do these vital signs tell us about the bulk power system? Learn the grid health underlying the vital signs and how to accurately assess them.  This lecture will explore reliability aspects of bulk power system so that you will develop a systematic, integrated understanding of how to assess the bulk power system reliability.  Additional indicators include energy emergency alerts, transmission outage rates, protection system operations, and resource reserve margin.  The presentation will also provide ranges, trends, and driving factors that influence changes in these indicators.
