In Chaos (Woodbury, N.Y.)

One of the most common causes of failures in complex systems in nature or engineering is an abrupt transition from a stable to an alternate stable state. Such transitions cause failures in the dynamic power systems. We focus on this transition from a stable to an unstable manifold for a rate-dependent mechanical power input via a numerical investigation in a theoretical power system model. Our studies uncover early transitions that depend on the rate of variation of mechanical input. Furthermore, we determine the dependency of a critical rate on initial conditions of the system. Accordingly, this knowledge of the critical rate can be used in devising an effective control strategy based on artificial intelligence (AI).
