proposed a cascade control strategy in which two PID controllers are used for both of the outer loop and inner loop [10].
The major research on cascading failures includes the cascading failure model [19-24], cascade control and defense strategies [25-30], the different attack modes of cascading failures [31-33], and so forth.
Some impacts like gearing and bearing wear, static and dynamic friction effects, pose specific reverse effects and dynamic behavior are characteristics of the machinery and the inner cascade control which cannot be influenced by external control of any kind.
