Summary

Resilience of Energy Systems in Catastrophic Events contains clear exposition of the resilience concept, with application to nuclear, hydropower, coal-fired power, solar, wind, and high voltage transmission energy systems. It offers solutions to the problems inherent in increasingly complex power systems and analyzes the impact on these systems in the event of catastrophic events and provides assessment to prevent such events in the future with the aim of creating sustainable, secure energy systems. The author's framework for analyzing, developing, and optimizing secure, resilient energy systems provides vital instruction for mitigating and preventing power supply disruptions. Contains the tools to evaluate catastrophic power plant events and mitigate potential risks from the outset Provides analysis for conceptualizing and measuring resilience across energy systems to maintain an acceptable level of operation Features expert evaluation of resilience in power systems that covers economic, environmental, technological and social indicators of system viability
