Title: Topology-Based Machine-Learning for Modeling Power-System Responses to Contingencies
Author(s): Brian W Bush*
Companies: NREL
Keywords: machine learning; topological data analysis; power systems; simulation

Using measurements of the topological features of power-system operation, we develop a machine-learning model to estimate the impact of contingencies (e.g., component outages) on a power system. The model, which predicts impact metrics such loss of load served, is trained on the simulated response to contingencies, given features measured from a graph-theoretic representation of the power system, topological metrics for that graph, static properties of the power-system components (buses, lines, transformers, generators, and loads), and dynamic properties (i.e., power-flow solutions) of the pre-contingency system. Training datasets comprise ensembles of thousands of power-flow solutions for several moderately sized, generic system models; open-source power-system analysis tools are employed. We utilize high-dimensional visualizations to assess the performance of the model and we summarize strengths and weaknesses.
