DYNAMICAL ANALYSIS OF THE ITALIAN HIGH-VOLTAGE POWER GRID
In this work, the Italian high-voltage power grid has been analysed by using a dynamical model based on Kuramoto-like oscillators. Synchronization in the network represents the normal working operating regime, after which the effect of perturbations has been studied to investigate the dynamical robustness of the network to faults. The analysis allows to define several dynamical parameters whose relationship with the topological ones is not-trivial. The results obtained have been then compared with those obtained on a surrogate random network.
