    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Rasmus Stålberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As infrastructural systems become ever more complex and interconnected, they may also become ever more vulnerable to system-wide faults due to local disturbances. As such it is of great importance to design these system to be resilient, i.e. to be able to withstand and recover from disturbances or new conditions. READ MORE
