 Abstract
This paper presents the use of sequential outage checkers to identify the potential cascading processes that might lead to large blackouts. In order to analyze cascading outages caused by a combination of thermal overloads, low voltages, and under-frequencies following an initial disturbance, sequential outage checkers are proposed. The proposed sequential outage checkers are verified using the AEP 9-bus system, New England 39-bus system, and IEEE 118-bus system.
