George Santayana said, “Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it”, and that certainly seems to be the case with the September 8, 2011 blackout that affected 2.7 million customers in the Southwestern United States. This event was eerily similar to the August 2003 outage that affected the Eastern Interconnect.

This 4-hour course is the second of a two-part series on the September 8, 2011 blackout and discusses the causes, findings and recommendations to prevent a reoccurrence. The purpose of reviewing the outage is to understand what went wrong and hopefully what can be done to prevent future events.
