Webinar on 12/09/2020: Techniques for Designing Large Transmission Networks in Synthetic Electric Grids

The large grid of high-voltage transmission lines and transformers that forms part of a bulk electric power delivery system can be characterized by a number of metrics from graph theory, network science, computational geometry, and engineering analysis. Example metrics include the distribution of the number of links connected to each node, the length of the
