  • Knowledge is Power: It Takes more than software…

    In the time it takes the average person to read this sentence, 36 petabytes of IoT data, (an amount roughly equivalent to 720 million four-drawer filing cabinets filled with text) will be created. That number will double by the end of 2019. During lunch today (for those fortunate enough to take lunch), GE Power Digital’s ...

  • A perspective overview of topological approaches for vulnerability analysis of power transmission grids

    Vulnerability analysis is a key issue in power systems since power transmission grids play a crucial role as a critical infrastructure. The power grid structure (number of nodes and lines, their connections, and their physical properties and operational constraints) is one of the main factors to assure power system security. Complex network theory as a promising topological approach for the ...

  • Correlating empirical data and extended topological measures in power grid networks

    Power grids are considered complex networks. Their structure and dynamics have been thoroughly studied and many topological measures have been used to classify them, evaluate their behaviour or model their response to malfunctions. Results have been theoretical and correlations between real dynamical behaviour (i.e., major events) and structural measures have not yet been found. New electrically ...

  • Knowing power grids and understanding complexity science

    Complex networks theory has been well established as a useful framework for studying and analysing structure, dynamics and evolution of many complex systems. Infrastructural and man–made systems like power grids, gas and water networks and the internet, have been also included in this network framework, albeit sometimes ignoring the huge historical body of knowledge surrounding them. Although ...

  • Free solar for Africa?

    The African continent is not homogeneous. The constant gap between the way we perceive the north of the continent and the harsh reality that the South is going through is often surprising. Many start to see and praise the "African miracle” progresses. However, many obstacles remain for Africa to impose its way. The sun, is a natural, free and abundant wealth in the African land, would it ...
