Mitigating the effect of disruptive events at the operating phase of complex systems therefore improving the systems’ resilience is an important yet challenging task. To improve the resilience, one way is to enhance the failure restoration capability with appropriate performance recovery strategies. However, considering different characteristics of disruptive events, the challenge is to develop a generally applicable framework to optimally coordinate different recovery strategies within a given budget. In order to tackle the challenge, this paper presents a post-disruption recovery framework for networked systems to optimize the performance. In this study, coordination of different recovery agents is achieved by using mathematical programming technique, while the assignment of the required resource for restoration is found by a heuristic algorithm. Case studies based on IEEE test feeders are used to demonstrate the feasibility of the developed framework, as well as the effects of optimal resource allocation nested in the restoration framework.
