As service providers to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency, Power Systems Consultants (PSC) and Texas A&M University (TAMU) are studying the impact of high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) on the North American electric power grid.
This session will discuss the evolution of state-of-the-art tools, concerns of the U.S. government on securing the electric grid against the threat of HEMP, and the unique data requirements and institutional communication challenges to perform these types of studies.
