Cooperative Game Theory applications in power systems – citation network analysis

The new citation network analysis is ready as an introduction to the thesis. Further details will follow soon. An interactive version of the network is available at:

The network is built from the past to the future based on the following three pivot papers:
• G0-1: (77 citations) Y. Tsukamoto and I. Iyoda, “Allocation of fixed transmission cost to wheeling transactions by cooperative game theory,” IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 11, no. 2, 1996;
• G0-2: (97 citations) J. Contreras and F. F. Wu, “Coalition formation in transmission expansion planning,” IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 14, no. 3, 1999;
• G0-3: (132 citations) J. M. Zolezzi and H. Rudnick, “Transmission cost allocation by cooperative games and coalition formation,” IEEE Trans. Power Syst., vol. 17, no. 4, 2002.

We also performed a keyword analysis to identify the main indicators of the research. Each node of the citation network (paper) has been split into several nodes (related keywords). Then we merged the repeating keywords and launched the modularity algorithm to highlight the research directions. The initial keyword network contained more than 7 000 unique words and 90 000 links between them, which is impossible to display. Therefore, we removed most of the keywords and kept only the frequent ones (that are mentioned in more than 10 papers). The resulting scheme turns out to be highly intuitive:

    Excellent work. Such approach should be used for any decent paper. I’m sure this approach will help young PhD students to make literature review.
