Taxonomy of the Characteristics of Power System Operating States

  title={Taxonomy of the Characteristics of Power System Operating States},
  author={Lamine Mili Bradley},
Advances in power electronics, computer and communications have opened new avenues for the monitoring, control and protection of critical infrastructures. For instance, the advent of low-cost computer-based sensors and actuators together with wireless communications devices are making possible the development of a new form of control based on multiagent technologies. If the latter are endowed with the ability to take collective actions geared toward a common goal, then control actions…

Research Needed in Computational Social Science for Power System Reliability, Resilience, and Restoration
This paper designs an artificial society simulating the interaction between power systems and the social communities that they serve via agent-based modeling inspired by Barsade's theory on the emotional spread and shows a decline in the consumers' and prosumers' satisfaction levels induced by a shortage of electricity.
