07 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Suman Acharyya
This survey discusses Master Stability Function (MSF) analysis for determining stability of synchronization of coupled oscillators on network. In addition, we briefly discuss the derivation of the Swing equation that determine the dynamics of a node in power grid network, and...

Complex Energy Systems
07 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Michael Chertkov
This is the opening guest lecture for the Electric Grid Focus Group. Dr. Michael Chertkov of Los Alamos National Lab describes the statistical and mathematical problems arising in complex energy systems, including the electric grid and gas networks. Systems with high penetration of...

A Survey of Grid Control and Optimization
07 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Colin James Grudzien
This is an introductory survey of how control problems arise on different time scales in electric grid transmission problems. The set up and general form of such problems are considered, along with operational considerations.
