Resilience-based component importance measures for critical infrastructure network systems

Abstract : In this paper, we propose two metrics, i.e. the optimal repair time and the resilience reduction worth, to measure the criticality of the components of a network system from the perspective of their contribution to system resilience. Specifically, the two metrics quantify (i) the priority with which a failed component should be repaired and re-installed into the network, and (ii) the potential loss in the optimal system resilience due to a time delay in the recovery of a failed component, respectively. Given the stochastic nature of disruptive events on infrastructure networks, a Monte Carlo-based method is proposed to generate probability distributions of the two metrics for all the components of the network; then, a stochastic ranking approach based on the Copeland's pairwise aggregation is used to rank components importance. Numerical results are obtained for the IEEE 30 Bus test network and a comparison is made with three classical centrality measures.
