A testbed for power system security evaluation Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper describes a project that integrates real devices used in the electric power grid with a simulation of electrical power generation and distribution, and a computer - communication simulator. The testbed is designed to evaluate the cyber-security of power grid control systems. Through a combination of simulation and emulation, the testbed seamlessly integrates virtual and real components, allowing for the evaluation of both high-level design descriptions on large-scale models, and precise measurements taken from production code executing on real hardware.
