Abstract.We show that there is a link between the Kuramoto paradigm and another system of synchronized oscillators, namely an electrical power distribution grid of generators and consumers. The purpose of this work is to show both the formal analogy and some practical consequences. The mapping can be made quantitative, and under some necessary approximations a class of Kuramoto-like models, those with bimodal distribution of the frequencies, is most appropriate for the power-grid. In fact in…

ANALYSIS OF THE ITALIAN POWER GRID BASED ON KURAMOTO-LIKE MODEL
In this work, an analysis of the italian high-voltage power grid based on a mapping between power grid nodes and Kuramoto-like oscillators is proposed. The network is able to reach a global
Stability of a Distributed Generation Network Using the Kuramoto Models
TLDR
A Kuramoto-like equation is derived from the Cardell-Ilic distributed electrical generation network and the resulting model is used to simulate the phase stability and the synchronization of a small electrical grid and it is shown that the synchronization rising-time follows a power-law.
DYNAMICAL ANALYSIS OF THE ITALIAN HIGH-VOLTAGE POWER GRID
In this work, the Italian high-voltage power grid has been analysed by using a dynamical model based on Kuramoto-like oscillators. Synchronization in the network represents the normal working
Interarea Oscillations & Chimera in Power Systems
TLDR
It is shown, that the model simulates various properties related to low frequency oscillations in power systems which presently are obtained through small-signal analysis.
On synchronization in power-grids modelled as networks of second-order Kuramoto oscillators.
TLDR
Analytical results on the role of coupling strength in the phenomenon of onset of complete frequency locking in power-grids modelled as a network of second-order Kuramoto oscillators show that both the load and the centralized generation might have concurred to the 2014 blackout.
Dynamics and stability of two power grids with hub cluster topologies
TLDR
It is shown that the stability of peripheral elements of the grid to disturbances depends significantly on the lengths of their connections to the rest of the Grid, including working synchronous mode in the Nizhny Novgorod power grid.
Synchronization of distributed power grids with the external loading system
TLDR
It is found that as the internal coupling coefficient is increased, the distributed power grids and the loading system become more and more synchronized in space, and the complete synchronization appears at a particular value of external coupling coefficient.
Power Grids as Synergetic Systems
TLDR
It is shown that the typical behavior of self-organizing systems like phase transitions and critical fluctuations can be observed in models for the dynamics of power grids, and a model, where the phase and voltage dynamics are represented by Kuramoto-like equations is investigated.

TLDR
Bimodality introduces a new time scale that results in a quasiperiodic disposition of the regions of incoherence in a large population of oscillators with natural frequencies following a bimodal distribution.

It is shown that a current-biased series array of nonidentical Josephson junctions undergoes two transitions as a function of the spread of natural frequencies, and the system can be mapped onto an exactly solvable model introduced by Kuramoto and the transition points can be accurately predicted.
