We model the interdependent operation of potable water distribution and electric power distribution infrastructure systems as a mixed simulation-optimization problem. Our goal is to capture the key attributes and essential interdependencies of these systems with enough fidelity to represent real infrastructure physics, measure how networks perform in various scenarios, and present new insights on infrastructure interdependencies. We develop a novel model that links together engineering models for water and power networks. We focus on systems at the scale of a military installation or a small island territory, and we study interdependent water-power system behavior across a series of emergency scenarios that interrupt normal operations.
