[] Final Report zum Stromausfall in den USA ist verfügbar,
Hallo Liste,

die U.S.-Canada Power System Outage Task Force hat ihren Endbericht vorgelegt, der in mehreren Teilen unter 
heruntergeladen werden kann. Das Werk umfasst insgesamt 230 Seiten.

Aus der Einleitung:
Chapter 2 provides an overview of the institutional framework for maintaining and ensuring the reliability of the bulk power system in North America, with particular attention to the roles and responsibilities of several types of reliability-related organizations.
Chapter 3 identifies the causes of the blackout and identifies failures to perform effectively relative to the reliability policies, guidelines,
and standards of the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) and, in some cases, deficiencies in the standards  themselves.
Chapter 4 discusses conditions on the regional power system on and before August 14 and identifies conditions and failures that did and did not contribute to the blackout. 
Chapter 5 describes the afternoon of August 14, starting from normal operating conditions, then going into a period of abnormal but still potentially manageable conditions, and finally into an uncontrollable blackout in northern Ohio.
Chapter 6 provides details on the cascade phase of the blackout as it spread in Ohio and then across the Northeast, and explains why the system performed as it did.
Chapter 7 compares the August 14, 2003, blackout with previous major North American power outages.
Chapter 8 examines the performance of the nuclear power plants affected by the August 14 outage.
Chapter 9 addresses issues related to physical and cyber security associated with the outage.
Chapter 10 presents the Task Force?s recommendations for preventing future blackouts and reducing the scope of any that occur.
