Power grid is the vital life line of modern society that can be easily get affected by blackouts and outages. Therefore it is important to diagnose the faults and restore the service in a timely manner in order to minimize the fault induced losses. To add to this, the complex and stochastic nature of environment factors makes automated fault identification, its diagnosis and its restoration is a big challenge. Thus , this paper determines the blackout scenarios around the world . It further explores the Overload Cascade model (OCM) algorithm and then proposes a modification into the OCM with a focus on modernizing the transmission grid through application of ICT technologies
