This report summarizes the work of the IEEE PES Task Force sponsored by the PSDS and AMPS committees. Resilience is a relatively new technical concept for power systems, and it is essential to precisely delineate this concept for actual applications. As a critical infrastructure, power systems have to be prepared to survive rare but extreme incidents (natural catastrophes, extreme weather events, physical/cyber-attacks, equipment failure cascades, etc.) to guarantee power supply to the increasingly electricity-dependent economy and society. Thus, resilience must be integrated into planning and operational assessment to design and operate adequately resilient power systems. Quantification of resilience as a key performance indicator is valuable, together with costs and reliability. Quantification can evaluate existing power systems and identify resilience improvements in future power systems. Given that a 100% resilient system is not economic (or even technically achievable), the degree of resilience should be transparent and comprehensible. Several gaps are identified to indicate further needs for research and development.
