Applied Cyber Security and the Smart Grid. Implementing by Eric D. Knapp

By Eric D. Knapp

Many humans examine the shrewdpermanent Grid as an influence distribution workforce equipped on complex shrewdpermanent metering―but that’s only one point of a miles better and extra complicated procedure. The "Smart Grid" calls for new applied sciences all through strength iteration, transmission and distribution, or even the houses and companies being served by way of the grid. This additionally represents new details paths among those new structures and providers, all of which represents probability, requiring a extra thorough method of the place and the way cyber safeguard controls are implemented.

This perception offers an in depth structure of the full shrewdpermanent Grid, with advised cyber security features for every thing from the provision chain to the consumer.

  • Discover the opportunity of the shrewdpermanent Grid
  • Learn intensive approximately its systems
  • See its vulnerabilities and the way most sensible to guard it

This is because energy generation is an important component of the Smart Grid. While it seems that a Smart Grid discussion should focus on the transmission and distribution infrastructure, energy generation systems are tightly integrated into T&D intelligence and automation, with many Smart Grid systems—such as demand-response systems—directly leveraging the generation infrastructure. A discussion of generation systems is also important as the T&D infrastructure evolves to support field generation and even in-home generation.

Data historian systems are also being used more and more for real-time business intelligence purposes: Rather than simply archiving data for historical reference, the historian is calculating efficiency metrics, isolating trends, and otherwise adding business context to process data. Perhaps, even more significant, however, is the role that more advanced substation gateways play in transmission. Looking at several commercially available substation gateways, a number of common features are available that raise cyber security concerns.

Transmission architecture Understanding how generation SCADA systems work and how they may be susceptible to a cyber attack helps to understand the risks that are facing the transmission system as substation operations, line management, and protection all become more automated. The transmission architecture begins where generation ends. 8, transmission architecture varies from generation architecture in several key ways, however. By its nature, transmission systems are highly distributed, with power lines covering large geographic areas.
