Finding vulnerabilities and measuring risk in the power transmission system
David Newman
Physics Dept/GI UAF




One of the important uses of complex systems models of critical infrastructures is the ability to identify vulnerabilities of the system and metrics for the system state. As part of an ongoing series of talks on this type of work, we will discuss the use of one such model (the OPA model) for the power transmission system and the techniques used to find vulnerabilities in the real US (western region) power grid as well as measures of the system state.
