  1. Realistic modeling and analysis of synchronization dynamics in power-grid networks

    08 May 2015 | Presentations

    An imperative condition for the functioning of a power-grid network is that its power generators remain synchronized. Disturbances can prompt desynchronization, which is a process that has been involved in large power outages. In this talk I will first give a comparative review of three leading...
