|Title:||A Comparison of Malicious Interdiction Strategies Against Electrical Networks||Authors:||Cuffe, Paul||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/8774||Date:||Jun-2017||Abstract:||How well can a typical electrical power system withstand a sophisticated malicious attack undertaken against its exposed branches? The present work seeks to articulate a comprehensive answer to this fundamental question of wide societal importance. New and established techniques that an attacker might use to select promising attack targets are considered, spanning complex network analysis, metaheuristics and classical optimization. By simulating this wide gamut of attack strategies on several test power systems, each modelled under many representative operating states, this work comprehensively articulates the expected robustness of electrical power grids against coordinated branch interdictions.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IEEE||Journal:||IEEE Journal on Emerging and Selected Topics in Circuits and Systems||Volume:||7||Issue:||2||Start page:||205||End page:||217||Copyright (published version):||2017 IEEE||Keywords:||Cascading failure; Directed attacks; Branch interdiction; Centrality; Optimization; Metaheuristics||DOI:||10.1109/JETCAS.2017.2704879||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||metadata.dc.date.available:||2017-09-29T09:36:34Z|
