Title

Robustness of Power Grid Topologies against Centrality-Based Attacks

Abstract

The power grid infrastructure is of paramount importance to society. Hence many studies have been undertaken to understand the structural properties of power grids to make them resilient. We study the topological robustness of three power grids -- IEEE 300 bus, Western US, and Poland -- against centrality-based targeted attacks on nodes and links. Our results indicate that the impact of attacks varies depending on the graph centrality metric being considered.
