This paper proposes an effective supervised learning approach for static security assessment of a large power system. Supervised learning approach employs least square support vector machine (LS-SVM) to rank the contingencies and predict the system severity level. The severity of the contingency is measured by two scalar performance indices (PIs): line MVA performance index (PI MVA ) and Voltage-reactive power performance index (PI VQ ). SVM works in two steps. Step I is the estimation of both

The effectiveness of the proposed methodology is demonstrated on IEEE 39-bus (New England system). The approach can be beneficial tool which is less time consuming and accurate security assessment and contingency analysis at energy management center.
