I know Jeff Dagle and he knows what he is talking about. I meet him when visiting PNNL earlier in the year and he understands how the bulk transmission system in the US works better than most people on the planet.

The best thing the US TSOs have done to prevent this happening again is install lots of PMUs under the NASPI program (see which Jeff is a member of. This is what gives the TSOs (and all the regional coordination authorities etc....) the real-time operational awareness of the stability of the bulk transmission system that just didn't exist a decade ago.

All constants are variables.
