CREATING SYSTEM RESILIENCE IN POWER GENERATION AND DELIVERY
Dr. Lianne M. Lefsrud, PEng with Dr. Fereshteh Sattari, Nastaran Gholizadeh, Dr. Akhtar Hussein, Dr. Petr Musilek and Dr. Hao Liang
In this workshop, Dr. Lefsrud and her team will draw from research to describe risk management systems, resiliency principles, and how these promote process safety and occupational/public safety. They will discuss obvious and non-obvious hidden hazards in electricity generation and delivery, what blinds organizations to these, and how organizations can become better equipped to identify, prevent, and mitigate them. This includes using data analytics and AI/machine learning and methods of visualizing failure modes and integrating management systems. To illustrate these principles and tools, they will use the February 2021 ice storm in Texas to examine what measures would improve system resiliency.
