With the increasing load demand and the increase of interconnections to meet the load demand, the system has to be operated not only economically but also securely. Nowadays in deregulated market the transmission lines are stressed heavily because of load demand and to operate economically. N-2 contingencies are important enough to study for on line security assessment. In this paper, we had focused on contingency selection of N-2 transmission line contingencies by using contingency screening and ranking methods, so we can differentiate between critical and non critical contingencies and also measure the severity of the contingency.
