Hybrid Smart Grid Testbed: Impact Analysis of Cyber-Attacks on Power Systems

Abtract: Cybersecurity is a serious problem for cyber-physical smart grid networks. Therefore, understanding the intricate interplay between the cyber and physical domains and the potential effects of successful attacks on the power system using a comprehensive testbed is essential. This paper presents a state-of-the-art Hybrid Physical Co-simulation testbed developed for in-depth studies on the impact of cyber-attacks on the grid. The Hybrid SGTB is designed to take full advantage of the benefits of both co-simulation-based and physical-based testbeds. Based on this testbed, various attack strategies are tested, including man-in-the-middle (MitM), denial-of-service (DoS), data manipulation (DM), and setting tampering (change) on various power system topologies to analyze their impacts on grid stability, power flow, and protection reliability. View this paper.
