Abstract: Vulnerability of the electrical infrastructure is growing due to liberalisation, growing demand, transactions escalation, resulting in an infrastructure that is more complex to manage. This was illustrated by major recent blackouts over Europe and North America, which have similar root causes in the inadequacies of current power system controls. Although advanced ICT may better cope with this increased complexity, it may increase exposure to accidental and malicious failures. Both risk assessment methodologies and real-time controls need substantial revision to address increasing vulnerabilities and to cope at the same time with a new map of jurisdictional responsibilities, cross-border procedures and technological innovation.
