We analyze the probability distribution for entropy production rates of trajectories evolving on a class of out-of-equilibrium kinetic networks. These networks can serve as simple models for driven dynamical systems, where energy fluxes typically result in nonequilibrium dynamics. By analyzing the fluctuations in the entropy production, we demonstrate the emergence, in a large system size limit, of a dynamic phase transition between two distinct dynamical regimes.
