Abstract

The need for novel smart grid technologies is often motivated by the need for more resilient power grids. While the number of technologies that claim to increase grid resilience is growing, there is a lack of widely accepted metrics to measure the resilience of smart grid installations. The design of effective resilience metrics is made difficult by the diversity of challenges and performance measures that a smart grid is subject to. This work identifies the necessary attributes for a complete and effective resilience metric and shows that previous work falls short. It then proposes a novel approach to measure resilience that focuses on the complex interdependencies between challenges and performances in smart grids.
