Markov Chain Sampling of Hidden Relay States for Economic Dispatch with Cascading Failures

Independent system operators (ISO) of electric power networks aim to dispatch electricity economically while maintaining system reliability. NERC (North America Electric Reliability Council) requires the transmission network to be (N-1)-secure, i.e., to have sufficient supply to satisfy demand in the event of the failure of any single resource in the network. Such a policy is … Read more
