Power systems are a recent field of application of complex network research, which allows performing large-scale studies and evaluations. Based on this theory, a power grid is modeled as a weighted graph with several kinds of nodes and edges, and further analysis can help in investigating the behavior of the grid under critical conditions. Among the crucial aspects of a power network, those... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In this paper, we use a circuit-based power flow model to study the cascading failure propagation process, and combine it with a stochastic model to describe the uncertain failure time instants, producing a model that gives a complete dynamic profile of the cascading failure propagation beginning from a dysfunctioned component and developing eventually to a large-scale blackout. The sequence of... Read more on IEEE Xplore

A novel distributed optimal dispatch algorithm is proposed for coordinating the operation of multiple micro units in a microgrid, which has incorporated the distributed consensus algorithm in multi-agent systems and the <inline-formula> <tex-math notation="LaTeX">$\lambda$ </tex-math></inline-formula>-iteration optimization algorithm in the economic dispatch of...

This paper proposes an optimal energy management approach combining sensitivities, interval, and probabilistic uncertainties of wind and solar power sources and loads in microgrid. Affine arithmetic (AA) is used to model the interval uncertainties and sensitivities in nodal power injections. However, all the elements in the interval solutions of AA-optimal power flow may not be significant in... Read more on IEEE Xplore

To introduce more automation in the distribution level of the power system, increasingly more data are needed to serve as input to control algorithms. To examine the complex interaction between the various layers of the system and verify the effectiveness of automation, difficult to obtain, realistic test systems are necessary. An algorithm for automatically synthesizing realistic medium voltage... Read more on IEEE Xplore
