The Indian power grid is vulnerable to cascading failures as evidenced by two major blackouts in July 2012. Indian power grid is also grossly underrepresented in complex network power grid literature. We have studied cascade failure simulations on the power grid to find out the vulnerable nodes and edges. We have further tried to validate the results with cascade failure simulations going from the purely topological to DC load flow simulations.
