Structural and Functional Vulnerability Analysis for Survivability of Smart Grid and SCADA network under severe emergencies and WMD attacks

Topics: Energy,

Using MATLAB and the complex network theory, the authors develop a model to test the reliability of Smart Grid and their corresponding SCADA networks under situations of stress. Acknowledging, "One of the most important foundations of a smart grid is the interoperability that enables devices… to interact," the authors test both the functional and structural vulnerabilities of these interacting networks.
