Disaster management and resilience in electric power systems

Lead Research Organisation: University of Manchester
Department Name: Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Abstract

Electricity infrastructure is key to sustain human and economic well-being since it supplies energy to industrial, commercial and financial sectors, critical services (health, traffic control, water supply), communication networks, and hence almost all activities in modern societies. Consequently, the effects of long electricity blackouts have demonstrated impacts on economic activities and social stability and security. A framework for disaster management and resilience of the power sector is needed, beyond the occurrence of "average" outages contemplated in current security standards. This framework should consider network management under the occurrence of natural hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis that may cause major blackouts, and assess proper measures to manage the associated disasters. Developing and implementing such a framework will be crucial to increase the opportunities for Chile and other countries, especially developing and low-income ones located around the Pacific Ring of Fire which are particularly exposed to the risk of earthquakes and tsunamis.

In this context, this project will undertake holistic risk analyses associated with natural hazards on electricity networks along with identification of mitigation and adaptation measures that can allow us to manage the arising disasters. This holistic perspective of disaster management and resilience will be supported by development of mathematical models to firstly assess risks related to high impact low probability events, such as earthquakes and tsunamis, on the electric power systems. These models will then serve to identify an optimal portfolio of preventive and corrective measures that can support mitigation of impacts and compare different adaptation strategies. In particular, besides classical infrastructure reinforcement, we will assess how operational measures for disaster management, for instance though distributed energy systems, e.g., based on communities and microgrids, can provide system resilience.

Building on this last point, resilience can in fact also be built through citizens and communities and by how they prepare for, and respond to, power outages. Such preparedness could for instance be led by the electricity companies and targeted at the individual and community levels by sharing accountability for response across the official respondents, local officials, community groups, individual citizens, and the electricity companies. The aim is for households to have response strategies that are complemented by resilience measures prepared for (and by) the community. Such shared responsibility is becoming the response culture in the UK (with the very recent recognition of spontaneous volunteers as a source of untrained, unknown support which converges at the time of an incident). In developing countries, where the capacity of official respondents may be insufficient given the scale of the disaster, the reliance on community preparedness and spontaneous emergence of willing helpers is more acute to lessen the effects of an incident and quicken the return to normality. Thus, in addition to more technical features, the framework developed here will explicitly include community resilience as a way to lessen the impact of outages and manage disasters.

By analysing several case studies in Chile based on both data from past experiences and simulations, we will propose a general framework for disaster management and network and community resilience which can be applicable to other developing and low-income countries. We will use the research findings to develop networks standards following disasters along with a standard on community resilience to power outages. These standards will include socio-economic and engineering indicators that can support monitoring of network resilience and readiness to withstand natural, catastrophic events as well as quantifying impacts of such events after they occur, enhancing quality of post-morterm analysis.

Planned Impact

In order to maximise this proposal's impacts, a well-proven team of researchers and partners have been engaged who have already worked together in previous projects, including between UK and Chile. Partners who will benefit from our project and are associated to the Chilean Government and other relevant associations include the Ministry of Energy, EEAG, Consejo Minero, ACERA and AGG. At the international level, and in order to far reach to other developing
countries, we have also engaged with ARUP, who (with the Rockerfeller Foundation) are leading a major "resilient cities" project across about 100 countries, and a university partner such as Teknikal Malaysia Melaka. In this outlook, we have also partnered with the International Standards Organisation (ISO) to ensure transfer of results into practical impactthrough Standards development, especially for developing countries. Our researchers from PUC have main roles in the Chilean CIGIDEN (The National Research Centre for Integrated Natural Disaster Management - funded by Conicyt), which is also a partner and will highly benefit from our findings. Policy makers and regulators/society, system operators, strategic consultants and standard-setting bodies (including our partners Chilean Ministry of Energy, Chilean regulatory offices (CNE and SEC), CDEC-SING and CDEC-SIC, Arup, Pwc, and ISO) will benefit from our results to (i) understand the fragility of strategic infrastructure and risk exposure of the electricity sector and society to natural hazards, and hence (ii) develop a framework for disaster management and resilience with (theoretically) proven mitigation and adaptation actions. Investigators from this proposal have extensively worked with the Chilean and UK Governments and thus understand how to harmonise current policy objectives of the country with the work that will be done under this proposal. For example, the letter of support from PwC signals the relevance of this topic to the UK Cabinet Office, with which we have excellent ongoing links. Energy producers and transporters (including our partners ENAP, Valhala, Colbun, AGG and ACERA) will also be impacted by our work, by gaining a clearer understanding of (i) their exposure to risks due to natural hazards, (ii) measures that can help to reduce risk exposure and economic losses, and (iii) their level of participation (according to technology type: renewables, hydro pumped storage, thermal generation, distributed generation, etc.) in an array of actions to support electricity systems to withstand catastrophic, natural hazards. The proposed work may also lead to recognition of such support through a formal regulatory and commercial framework that increases revenue streams to those technologies that can provide security services under catastrophic events, promoting new innovative technologies and solutions that can contribute to resilience. Large and small consumers, including communities with their own electricity generation (e.g. our partners EEAG, Consejo Minero, Codelco), will benefit from our results to understand their risk exposure, economic losses and mitigation actions when high impact earthquakes and tsunamis occur, as well as their potentially key role in supporting the main system through community based energy systems and demand side distributed resources (e.g. backup generators from large consumers and/or distribution companies, or small energy storage systems such as batteries). Our
work will also inform on the potential to develop microgrids in specific areas subject to risk. Academia and research centres (in primis our partners CIGIDEN, Centro de Energia, Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka, SERC, and the IEEE International Practices Subcommittee) will benefit from our cutting edge interdisciplinary research. There will also be further beneficiaries associated with our dissemination activities in terms of students, professionals, and general interested public like for instance, ONGs.

Description We have developed cutting edge understanding, models and tools that can address the emerging concepts of power system resilience to extreme (so-called high-impact low-probability) events. Our research activities and relevant publications are in fact setting a reference in this area worldwide. Key findings suggest that planning a network for resilience rather than conventional reliability may lead to largely different network infrastructure solutions. For example, for reliability purposes it is generally efficient to invest into network redundancy, confirming the current practices; however, for resilience (especially in response to very extreme events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, flooding, etc.) it may be more effective to invest into network strengtening (for example, at strategic transmission substations) or flexible, distributed energy systems. For example, highly controllable solutions such as HVDC may be extremely effective for both reliability and resilience purposes. Similarly, the role played by flexible microgrids in providing power systems resilience to extreme weather is of growing importance, and our results indicate a path towards investing into the likes of community energy systems, which may be particularly relevant for ODA countries. The project has in fact also made substantial advances in terms of "community resilience" as a way to lessen the impact of outages and manage disasters, by ensuring households have response strategies that are complemented by resilience measures prepared for (and by) the community. In summary, our findings provide clear indications for ODA countries towards boosting their energy infrastructure development towards more distributed and more controllable energy systems, in case centred around communities when applicable and relevant. At the same time, specific findings for Chile indicate the importance of strengthening network components (e.g., substations) to deal with earthquakes. We expect that such findings be of general applications to most ODA countries as well as of developed countries such as the UK, as also suggested by relevant studies conducted with reference to different events such as windstorms and flooding.
Exploitation Route The application of this research will benefit power system planners, regulators and policy makers, contributing to the development of a more resilient, affordable and clean energy supply in both ODA and developed countries (including the UK). The methodologies developed are in fact of completely general applicablity and scalability. Evidence of this is the application of the original models developed in this project to different hazards (e.g., flooding) and in different countries - this is for example happening in the GCRF TERSE project (EP/R030294/1), where Malaysian partners (also on the DAC list) have implemented and used our methodology for electrification planning and resilience assessment in the Borneo island. It should also be noted that the general framework developed and used in the project is receiving wide international attention from academics worldwide, who are taking our framework and methodologies as one of the key references for their studies. Important international applications have also happened from a regulatory perspective: for instance, the Australian Energy Market Commission have used our resilience framework as a reference for the development of their power system resilience enhancement framework following recent weather-driven blackouts in Australia.

Description Our project has had a profound impact on our external partners/beneficiaries (including government and industry) in Chile. Firstly, the concept of power system resilience has been formally integrated in the analysis undertaken by the Chilean Ministry of Energy in its regulated, long-term energy planning process entitled "Planificación Energética de Largo Plazo". This regulated process, that aims at planning the future investments in electricity infrastructure in the long term, was designed by a research team led by Prof. Moreno (who used the concepts developed within the project). Particularly, this research team integrated power system resilience concepts into a workable long-term planning process that can be run by the Chilean authority. Secondly, the Chilean system operator (Coordinador Eléctrico Nacional, CEN) has incorporated, for the first time, resilience as an explicit criterion in their system plans, following the methodology developed in our work. See, for instance, the CEN's report entitled "Propuesta de Expansión de Transmisión del Sistema Eléctrico Nacional 2017", which cites our work in Chapters 5.3, 6.8 and 13. The methodology applied corresponds to that developed in S. Espinoza et al., "Seismic resilience assessment and adaptation of the Northern Chilean Power System," in 2017 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Power and Energy Society (IEEE PES) General Meeting Conference, 2017. The relevant resilient network investments that have been proposed are worth in the order of 50 million US dollars. Our Newton funded project contributed to several UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). In particular, the project directly contributed to SDG7 ("Affordable and Clean Energy") and SDG9 ("Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure") through the development of mathematical tools capable of both assessing the impact of natural hazards (i.e. earthquakes) in electric infrastructure and determining an affordable (i.e. economically optimal) portfolio of measures that may enhance system resilience, including investments in traditional network reinforcements and low-carbon distributed energy systems (such as community based systems and micro-grids). Moreover, these tools can be applied to extreme weather events (such as windstorms, hurricanes and floods), which are becoming more frequent and severe due to climate change. In this respect, our project also contributes strongly to SDG13 ("Climate Action"). Under a wider scope, more resilient electricity networks directly impact on the well-being and economic growth of developing countries worldwide, since they supply energy to almost all activities in modern societies, such as industrial, commercial and financial sectors; critical services (health, traffic control, water supply); communication networks. Indeed, the effects of long electricity blackouts have demonstrated severe impacts on economic activities, social stability and security and thus, aiding to increase energy systems resilience also contributes to other SDGs, such as SDG3 ("Good Health and Well-Being), SDG8 ("Decent Work and Economic Growth") and SDG11 ("Sustainable Cities and Communities"). This evidences the criticality of our line of work and its potential contribution to making the shift towards a sustainable and resilient paradigm of energy networks in developing countries, which are vital for their social and economic prosperity. Further, the impacts of climate change, extreme weather events and natural hazards in general are significantly stronger in the developing world. In the case of the energy sector, this problem is exacerbated by the presence of weaker electricity infrastructure, commonly observed in poorer countries. Hence, the countries in question are not only more exposed to the effects of climate change, but also less prepared to face them. It is also critical, in this context, to develop solutions that are affordable for developing regions, with the minimum budget expenditure so as to improve the overall quality of the electricity service in an economic fashion. After the end of the project, in 2019, the Chilean team has been engaged further by two of the project partners, namely, the Coordinador Eléctrico Nacional (System Operator) and the Comisión Nacional de Energía (Energy Commission) for two important pieces of work relevant to: "New transmission expansion methods for zonal transmission networks, improving reliability and resiliency through distributed energy resources and new transmission network investments", in which the tools we developed during the project have been used. Further use of our resilience framework and tools has been made in Malaysia - another country on the DAC list of ODA recipients - within the TERSE project (EP/R030294/1, GCRF EPSRC scheme) for electrification and resilience enhancement planning studies, as well as in Australia for regulatory purposes, whereby the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has applied our methodologies for their power system resilience enhancement framework. It should also be noted that during the project there has been gender diversity in the research team, with employment (as part of the University of Manchester team) of a Chilean female researcher to work on socio-economic aspects of system resilience, and with applications to community studies that were also relevant to gender and social diversity. This has been a great opportunity for the researcher, who was later offered an academic position at the University of Chile.

Title Industrial Strength COMPASS algorithm 
Description In our first year, we have developed an optimization approach to find the optimal set of network assets to improve system resiliency. Particularly, an Industrial Strength COMPASS algorithm has been implemented to find the optimal set of new transmission lines that maximizes system resiliency subject to a budget constraint. This algorithm iteratively proposes, in a first stage, a set of new transmission lines that are then tested, in a second stage, via simulation of the system operation, including impact of various network failures. In the second stage, the sequence day-ahead unit commitment plus real-time operation is modeled along with a sequential Monte Carlo simulation to determine highly detailed system operation under network outages and thus calculate the associated expected energy not supplied.

Impact We have used our models to propose a classification for different types of system risk analyses, associating them to the concept of power systems resilience, with a special focus on exposure to seismic events. Our analysis evaluates the disaster's impact through two indices: the Energy not Supplied and the Energy Index of Unreliability. We have also compared three resilience adaptation strategies, namely, robust, redundant and responsive cases, in terms of their expected energy annual loss and the return period of different levels of network performance.
