Graph trace analysis for power system design


Robert Broadwater and his students are adding capabilities to a power distribution system design program called Graph Trace Analysis (GTA). Modeling power grid systems in Graph Trace Analysis (GTA) to determine priorities in electrical failure, Ph.D. student David Kleppinger is developed a new notation to write algorithms in GTA that are independent of the systems being analyzed.

Ph.D. student Lynn Feinauer developed an object-oriented framework for GTA such that the object is the engineering algorithm. These new capabilities extend the use of GTA and are applicable for many applications.
