Extreme weather and other natural disasters can threaten lives, disable communities, and devastate electric utilities’ generation, transmission, and distribution systems. In recent years, these extreme events have been more and more frequent and disruptive. The hurricanes in USA coastal areas, wildfires in the western USA, as well as the tornados and winter storms in Midwest in the past three years are the most recent examples indicating significant vulnerability of power grid in the extreme weather events. Since modern power grids are a large interconnected system, it is imperative to build nationwide grid infrastructure models that will capture unique electric and climatic characteristics in different geographical regions. Furthermore, these models should consider and represent interdependencies in different interconnections. This panel contains power system experts from ISOs/RTOs, top-ranked universities, and national labs to present their visions from multiple angles on how the future resilient grid will look like. Our panelists will present their grid resilience modeling works in Western Interconnections, Eastern Interconnection, ERCOT, and Midwest. They will cover high-voltage transmission grids, low-voltage distribution grids with DERs and microgrids, and natural gas systems.
