Discrete & Computational Math Seminar (DisCoMath)
Two problems in power domination

What is the most efficient way to successfully place phasor measurement units (PMUs) on an electric power grid?  The graph theoretic approach to modeling this problem is known as power domination.  Mathematically speaking, power domination has a great deal in common with the well-known graph theory areas of domination and zero forcing, and interestingly, was introduced earlier than zero forcing. In this talk, I will talk about failed power domination which is the study of how many PMUs can be placed on the grid without effectively monitoring the grid, as well as power domination reconfiguration, which is the investigation of when one PMU configuration can be changed into another under certain constraints.
