Abstract:

The University of New Mexico, through its University Strategic Partnership USP program, has supported the DTRA initiative aimed at advancing the state of the science and body of knowledge for Network Adaptability from WMD Disruption and Cascading Failures. Using a combination of graph-theoretic dynamical modeling of cascading failures, optimal distributed control-algorithm design, and distributed estimation techniques, the team has studied how various communication network-based power measurement and control approaches impact the robustness and efficiency of power networks in the face of WMD-induced cascading failures.
