Measures of network structural integrity useful in the analysis and synthesis of power systems are discussed. Signal flow methodology is applied to derive an expression for the paths between sources and sinks in a power network. Connectivity and reach ability properties of the network are obtained using the minors of a modified connectivity matrix. Node-connectivity, branch connectivity and mixed connectivity of power system are discussed.
