Real-world network systems, for example, power grids, are critical to modern economies. Due to the increasing system scale and complex dependencies inside of these networks, system failures can widely spread and cause severe damage. We have experienced massive cascading failures in power grids, such as major U.S. western grid failures in 1996 and the great Northeast blackout of 2003. Therefore, analyzing cascading failures and defense strategies, in response to system catastrophic breakdown, is…

This article systematically reviews cascading failures modeling and reliability analysis methodologies, as well as mitigation strategies for building the resilience of IoT systems against cascading fails, and covers diverse IoT applications.

A Survey of Cyber-Physical Power System Modeling Methods for Future Energy Systems

The grid of the future will have a higher penetration of grid edge devices that enable increased automation and grid edge intelligence. The current grid models do not account for these grid-edge

A Modeling Framework for System Restoration from Cascading Failures

This paper presents a modeling framework to investigate the effects of in-process restoration, which depends strongly on the timing and strength of the restoration actions, and demonstrates that the effect of restoration is also influenced by the combination of system loading level and restoration disturbance.

Optimization of Cascade‐Resilient Electrical Infrastructures and its Validation by Power Flow Modeling

The results on the 400 kV French power transmission network case study show that the proposed method allows us to identify optimal patterns of generators-distributors connection that improve cascading resilience at an acceptable cost.

On the Impacts of Power Outages during Hurricane Sandy—A Resilience‐Based Analysis

The focus of this study is on the resilience action that enables restoration of the disrupted system, and the observations, lessons learnt, and recommendations based on this analysis are expected to improve recovery from large-scale power outages resulting from any disruptive event in future.

A new model of network cascading failures with dependent nodes

A new cascading failure model considering the synergies existing between dependency clusters of nodes and the dynamic distribution of network loads is proposed, upon which the effect of dependencies among network nodes on propagation of network failures is analyzed.

Combined effects of load dynamics and dependence clusters on cascading failures in network systems

Causes of the 2003 major grid blackouts in North America and Europe, and recommended means to improve system dynamic performance

On August 14, 2003, a cascading outage of transmission and generation facilities in the North American Eastern Interconnection resulted in a blackout of most of New York state as well as parts of

Network resource reallocation strategy based on an improved capacity-load model

This work presents and verify an improved nonlinear network capacity-load model based on the actual relation between network capacity and load and proposes a new network resource reallocation strategy for networks under attacks from the perspective of maintenance.

Robustness and Vulnerability of Networks with Dynamical Dependency Groups

This study theoretically finds that an abrupt percolation transition exists corresponding to the dynamical dependency groups for a wide range of topologies after initial random removal and proposes an analytical framework for random networks with arbitrary degree distribution.

Analyzing the Vulnerability of Critical Infrastructure to Attack and Planning Defenses

We describe new bilevel programming models to (1) help make the country's criti- cal infrastructure more resilient to attacks by terrorists, (2) help governments and businesses plan those
