Infrastructure Resilience Assessment through Control Design

Graph of supply stocks decline in response to disruptionInfrastructure resilience analysis methods generally focus on how disruptions affect the infrastructure’s ability to provide critical goods and services while ignoring resource allocation issues: emergency responders need to know how to spend limited resources to minimize negative impacts and maximize response efficiency. This application of control theory design demonstrates an innovative resilience cost analysis approach that simultaneously considers both infrastructure performance and resource usage in recovery activities. Furthermore, it shows how feedback control design can be used to select optimal recovery strategies that minimize those costs.
