Cascaded events can damage to equipment of power plants, interruption of production cycles, and great economic losses. To locate the fault a positive sequence voltage and current phasors at both ends of a transmission line can be used to determine the faulted area. This includes identifying whether the action of protective relays are related to fault conditions or overloads. Meanwhile, the flow transfers and “Discriminating” factors the sensitivity based power flow analysis is adopted. To calculate the overloads occurring due to the outages and measure propagation of cascading failures across a transmission network a sensitivity factors based generation shift factors (GSF) and line outage distribution factors (LODF) can be used. It is proposes a new methodology CAMA to measure the necessary control action and combination of local and wide area information that is time synchronized provides the ability to stabilize electric power system in ways that minimize necessary control actions. The main purpose of this technique is to improve disturbance monitoring and system event analysis. The efficacy of this control actions can be measured in a sample IEEE-6 bus power system interconnected network and work has been carried out in MATLABenvironment.
