  • New Peer-Reviewed Paper Explores Resilience in Modern Electric Grids

Demand for resilience is increasing on electric grids, and, at the same time, the structure and electricity generation profile is changing.

A new peer-reviewed paper, “Resilience in an Evolving Electrical Grid,” discusses the topic. It was published in the journal Energies by ACEP researchers Phylicia Cicilio, Richard Weis and Mohammad Kapourchali, in addition to others.

The paper reviews the research addressing the changing generation profile, state-of-the-art practices to address resilience, and research works at the intersection of resilience and generation profile in regard to modern electrical grids.
