Large-deviation study of the maximum-disturbance stability of power grids — •Alexander K. Hartmann1, Timo Dewenter1, Wiebke Heins2, and Benjamin Werther2 — 1Institut of Physics, University of Oldenburg — 2Institut for Electrical Energy Technology, Technical University of Clausthal
We study numerically the distribution of “maximum-disturbance” stability of power grids. The model is based on networks of oscillators. Here, we consider different ensembles of random networks, like standard Erdös-Renyi and two dimensional spacial networks. To access the distribution down to very small probabilities, we use specific large deviation techniques . The stability is given by a conservative estimation of an asymptotic stability boundary, which is well known in stability theory [2,3]. The starting point is the matrix A defined by JTA+AJ =E, J being the Jacobean Matrix. By calculating the maximum disturbance of x, which results in the quadratic form V=xT A x=є(x) not being a Lyapunov-function of the system any longer, the boundaries for the stability can be found.
For comparsion, for the given networks also simple stability measures beased on shortest paths , on the eigenvalues of the Jacobi matrix and on a linearized power-flow model  are obtained.
