Restoration and Protection Design of Resilient Networks

In this chapter, we generalize material presented in Chapter 4 by adding a new (resilience) dimension to the considered design problems. Now we will discuss network optimization problems not only for the normal network operating state, but also for a set of states corresponding to a selected set of failure situations. The different failure situations are specified by the availability status of the links and nodes and, additionally, by (possibly decreased) demand volumes requested for a particular situation. The resulting optimization problems will be referred to as restoration design problems. The issue is that designed networks are resilient (robust) to failures, i.e., the networks ...
