Title: Electric Power Outage Forecasting

Abstract

Electrical distribution networks are the final leg of the network that moves electric power from generating stations to end users. The vast majority of the circuits in these networks are above-ground and exposed to direct damage from strong winds, broken tree limbs, toppled trees, and flying debris. These systems are also susceptible to ice storms. The combined stress of the weight of ice (icing), the increased wind resistance of the conductors, and broken tree limbs can damage lines, poles, and support structures.
