Braess's paradox in oscillator networks, desynchronization and power outage
New Journal of Physics
Robust synchronization is essential to ensure the stable operation of many complex networked systems such as electric power grids. Increasing energy demands and more strongly distributing power sources raise the question of where to add new connection lines to the already existing grid. Here we study how the addition of individual links impacts the emergence of synchrony in oscillator networks that model power grids on coarse scales. We reveal that adding new links may not only promote but alsodoi:10.1088/1367-2630/14/8/083036 fatcat:ywyorpyhdzdzdeldsozc2ek37q
