A fast technique has been developed for the automatic ranking and selection of contingency cases for a power system contingency analysis study. A contingency list is built containing line and generator outages which are ranked according to their expected severity as reflected in voltage level degradation and circuit overloads. An adaptive contingency processor can be set up by performing sequential contingency tests starting with the most severe contingencies at the top of the list and proceeding down the list, stopping when the severity goes below a threshold. Computational results of this technique applied to different test systems are presented.
