A Flow-Based Centrality Measure Through Resistance Distances in Smart-Grid Networks
The authors propose methods to estimate centrality in Smart-Grid Networks (SGNs) from the view of a flow-based approach. In several network categories, centrality metrics, such as degree, closeness and betweenness, have provided ways to investigate the importance or weakness of components. These well-known metrics utilize either non-global or shortest-path information. They mention several observations which try to use these metrics into a vulnerability measure of SGNs. For this, they stress that using a proper metric, which captures the core network characteristic, is important to induce a correct network analysis. This proper metric changes with network categories.
