Abstract

We present two different approaches to model power grids as interconnected networks of networks. Both models are derived from a model for spatially embedded mono-layer networks and are generalised to handle an arbitrary number of network layers. The two approaches are distinguished by their use case. The static glue stick construction model yields a multi-layer network from a predefined layer interconnection scheme, i.e. different layers are attached with transformer edges. It is especially suited to construct multi-layer power grids with a specified number of nodes in and transformers between layers. We contrast it with a genuine growth model which we label interconnected layer growth model.
