    Abstract

    This paper is part of a project that studies risk analysis and management methods for major disturbances in the supply of electric power. In this project, a major disturbance in the supply of electric power is defined as a long lasting or widespread interruption in the supply of electric power, during which the fire and rescue services and one or more other public actor (municipality, police, etc.) need, in addition to the distribution system operator (DSO), to start implementing measures for reducing possible severe consequences to people and property. In Finland, in 2001 storms Pyry and Janika and four storms of the summer 2010 are good examples of major disturbances. In these storms, some individual customers were left without electricity even for weeks. Major outage in UCTE's area in November 2006 concerned a wide area in Europe and caused societal consequences even if it was short lasting. As represented in the definition, major disturbances also require actions from authorities. In many previous studies, it has come up that there is a need for better communication between actors in major disturbances.
