A modern electric power system network (PSN) is typically a large and complex engineering system whose healthy existence is crucial to industrial and socio-economic development of Nations. Voltage instability and collapse contribute to large extent to system collapse or blackouts and it is one of the major concerns for today’s electric power system operations. The Nigerian National grid (NNG) experiences on an average of thirty-five (35) system collapse every year over the past ten (10) years. This paper presents an overview and classification of system collapse on the NNG. Keywords — Voltage collapse, Voltage instability, and Nigerian National Grid (NNG)
