Most of these problems occur due to no synchronization and mal-operation of the protection system which relies on distance protection relays and traditional backup schemes.
Interlayer synchronization is also called counterpart synchronization [11] which describes how the nodes in one network behave coherently with the corresponding ones in other connected networks.
The main contribution of this paper is to show how to use iUML-B pattern state machine to model the synchronization patterns of the control-intensive embedded system and apply it to the Event-B model of the embedded control system.
Several methods, such as coherency [12, 13], mutual information [10, 14], partial-directed coherence [15-17], directed transfer function [18, 19], and phase synchronization [20, 21], have been used to measure the interactions among different areas of the brain to establish a network.

In order to obtain such complex synchronization of chaotic (hyperchaotic) complex systems, some control methods such as Lyapunov-based control, feedback control and/or adaptive control [2, 5, 6, 8,11-15,17-20], passive control [3], finite-time stability theory-based control [4, 9,16], nonlinear observer-based control [7], backstepping-based control [10], and adaptive fuzzy logic control [21] have been proposed.
For transceivers where the devices and components are located in proximity, sharing a common timing signal is generally the easiest and most accurate method for synchronization [5-7].
