ANALYSIS OF THE ITALIAN POWER GRID BASED ON KURAMOTO-LIKE MODEL
In this work, an analysis of the italian high-voltage power grid based on a mapping between power grid nodes and Kuramoto-like oscillators is proposed. The network is able to reach a global synchronous state, after which a perturbation is applied in order to study the dynamical robustness of the network to faults. Several dynamical parameters such as the minimum value of perturbation leading to desynchronization and the time to reach the complete loss of synchronism have been introduced. A non-trivial complex relationship between dynamical and topological parameters of the network emerges.
