Towards a realistic model for failure propagation in interdependent networks

Agostino Sturaro, Simone Silvestri, Mauro Conti, Sajal K. Das
2016 2016 International Conference on Computing, Networking and Communications (ICNC)  
In this paper we focus on the interdependence between the power grid and the communications network, and propose a novel realistic model, HINT (Heterogeneous Interdependent NeTworks), to study the evolution  ...  Such interdependencies create new vulnerabilities and make these networks more susceptible to failures.  ...  For instance, AGCs control power plants for energy generation, while PMUs monitor transmission and distribution substations.  ...
