The abstract states: "An outage estimator that generates outage data characterizing a power state for a number of premises serviced by a power grid, the number of premises comprising a first set of the premises and a second set of the premises different from the first set of the premises. The generating includes executing a first stage analysis that estimates the power state for the first set of the premises associated with a set of transformers coupled to a first feeder in the power grid in response to detecting an event message from a smart meter associated with the first set of the premises. The generating also includes executing a second stage analysis that estimates the power state for a second set of premises associated with a set of laterals coupled to a second feeder in the power grid in response to detecting that no event messages have been provided from smart meters associated with the second set of the premises within a predetermined amount of time."
