Abstract: We model power grids as graphs with heavy-tailed sinks, which representdemand from cities, and study cascading failures on such graphs. Our analysislinks the scale-free nature of blackout sizes to the scale-free nature of citysizes, contrasting previous studies suggesting that this nature is governed byself-organized criticality. Our results are based on a new mathematicalframework combining the physics of power flow with rare event analysis forheavy-tailed distributions, and are validated using various synthetic networksand the German transmission grid.
