Last-Mile Restoration for Multiple Interdependent Infrastructures
This paper considers the restoration of multiple interdependent infrastructures after a man-made or natural disaster. Modern infrastructures feature complex cyclic interdependencies and require a holistic restoration process. This paper presents the first scalable approach for the last-mile restoration of the joint electrical power and gas infrastructures. It builds on an earlier threestage decomposition for restoring the power network that decouples the restoration ordering and the routing aspects. The key contributions of the paper are (1) mixed-integer programming models for finding a minimal restoration set and a restoration ordering and (2) a randomized adaptive decomposition to obtain highquality solutions within the required time constraints. The approach is validated on a large selection of benchmarks based on the United States infrastructures and state-of-the-art weather and fragility simulation tools. The results show significant improvements over current field practices.
