Special Session VI

Operation and Planning of Resilient Urban Power Network

The urban power network (UPN) is the basis for other infrastructure networks, including water distribution network, natural gas network and metro-transportation network. Therefore, enhancing the resilience of UPN is essential for the public security of a city. It depends on sufficient emergency resources and optimal dispatch of the resources. Furthermore, the interdependency between UPN and other infrastructure networks serves as guidance for the decision maker to dispatch the emergency resources. We hope to discuss the innovative methodology for resilience assessment and enhancement of UPN considering its coupling effects with other networks.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Resilience-oriented planning of distribution networks
Distribution system restoration considering distributed resources
Resilience assessment of gas-electrical integrated systems
Modeling of interdependency between electrical-water-gas networks
Modeling the impact of extreme weather on urban power networks
Modeling of resilience assessment cyber-physical systems
Resilience assessment of electrical-transportation coupling networks
