This paper looks at the similarities between the August 14, 2003 blackout and the Western System collapse of 1996. It was shown that the August 14 collapse resulted from system overloading that led to voltage deterioration in the system and consequently a "fast" collapse, similar to the July 2, 1996 collapse.
