This special issue of the IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems (JETCAS) aims at identifying, addressing, and disseminating state-of-the-art research in theory of complex systems with applications to smart grids.

This paper provides a survey of studying complex network theory for modern smart grid applications. A brief overview of complex network theory will be explored first. Topological characteristics, statistic characteristics, such as self-organized criticality and critically slow down, and dynamical characteristics, including synchronizations, consensus control, and pinning control, will be briefly...

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
