Managing Interconnected Control Variables

Managing Interconnected Control Variables

A Case of Electricity and Water

(p.142) Chapter 8 Managing Interconnected Control Variables
Reliability and Risk

Emery Roe

Stanford University Press

This chapter presents a detailed case study of control variables shared across critical infrastructures, the framework’s core concept, and what this implies for reliability and risk management at the ICIS level. The input-output interconnectivity between water flows at the Banks pumps of the State Water Project near Tracy and electricity flows from the transmission grid to power those pumps is examined. Using a unique multiyear dataset and statistical analysis, the chapter shows how changes in electricity flows to the Banks pumps, an extremely important element in the State Water Project, affect changes in water flows through those pumps and what the implications are for resilience in each infrastructure’s operations.

Keywords:   Control variables, ICISs, electricity infrastructure, water infrastructure, resilience
