The theme of this issue is power system blackouts. A blackout in power system operation is defined as large-scale interrup-tion of power in multiple service areas. Reliability and se-curity are the two most important criteria in power grids design, installation, operation, and planning. In many parts of the world, the endeavor from generations of power pro-fessionals helps keep the power system availability above 99%. Nevertheless, like many other large-scale, complex en-gineering systems, interruptions happen all the time, most of which are caused by inevitable aging failures or damages in extreme events, for instance, winter storms, hurricane, earthquake, and wild fire.
