Recently, successive power blackouts of large scale occurred in the world, which attracts researchers' attention to the reliability of power grid. This paper focuses on the analysis of power grid topological statistical property. After delving into the small-world network model, this paper compares western power grid of USA and northern power grid of China, and concludes that Chinese and American large-scale power grids fall in the category of small-world network. Then, the paper analyzes qualitatively the effect of small-world properties on the transmission of cascading failure in power grid.
