Abstract

This project was completed with the electrical power utility company, National Grid. The objective was to provide this company with a predictive simulation model, using the Microsoft Excel add-in @Risk, which would assist them in more accurately predicting restoration times during major storms. Through the analysis of historical storm data and the acquisition of data through interviews we were able to provide National Grid with recommendations and a simulation model prototype that can be used in the near future.
