Title: New Frameworks for Anomaly Detection in Large-Scale Power Distribution Networks When: 4 - 5 PM EST, Friday, Dec. 11, 2020
Presenter: Dr. Ramin Moghaddass, Assistant Professor, Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Miami
Abstract: Power distribution networks are continuously monitored by various sensors that are placed at a subset of nodes and edges. The multidimensional data observed from these networks over time build large-scale graph data with highly dependent data points. Monitoring large-scale attributed networks with thousands of nodes and heterogeneous sensor data to detect anomalies and unusual events is a complex and computationally expensive process. This work introduces a new generic approach for network anomaly detection that can utilize the information from the network topology, the node attributes (sensor data), and the anomaly propagation paths in an integrated and intelligent manner to monitor the entire network. Experimental results demonstrate the superior performance of the framework compared to traditional machine learning approaches.
