Title: Cyber-physical Smart Grid Situational Awareness
Prof Neetesh Saxena
School of Computer Science and Informatics
Cardiff University, UK
Date: 25th August 2023, 3 pm
Venue: MMCR, EE Dept, IISc
In recent years, the impact evaluation of cyber-physical security of the smart grid has become highly notable and extremely important and critical research direction due to several recent cyber-attacks attempts in different countries. The smart grid is vulnerable to cyber-attacks due to its integration with communication and control technologies. The cyber-attacks can affect operations and decision-making at the energy management system or effectively destroy the critical components, even shut down the power operations and can disrupt service for its customers. Inaccurate information leads to triggering inappropriate actions by the operators. The cyber-attacks either can directly target a power component of the smart grid system or can be triggered through the communication network to the power system. In this talk, I will discuss cyber security issues with a case study to explore the cyber-physical situational awareness.
