Cyber Physical Systems

Nowadays, the demand for designing efficient, end-to-end Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) has grown tremendously. Typically, CPS are composed of a combination of physical components and modern sensors. Modern sensors are responsible for monitoring the physical environment and provide high-quality multivariate time-series measurements, while physical components are related with the structure of each application.

A new (r)evolution

It is clear that electrical power and energy systems (EPES) are of key importance for almost all other domains and sectors that demand energy and electricity supply. As such systems and infrastructures were becoming more and more complex, due without any doubt to an even more evolved and a more demanding population, the new technologies appeared on the stage providing new approaches for designing, managing and protecting of such systems.

Cyber Security in Electrical Power Grids

Electrical power grids are part of what we call critical infrastructures and are essential for maintaining structure and order within our society. In the past, power grids were characterized by proprietary, isolated, legacy equipment, which in turn provided a barrier to malicious intrusion into the power system. Over time, the power grids have changed, becoming more efficient through more automation and digitalization and connected more with the outside world, thus, breaking the barrier that once protected the system from malicious external influences.

Phasor Measurement Unit for Monitoring Power Systems

Architecture of a Synchrophasor networks

A typical architecture of a synchrophasor network is shown in the figure. PMUs produce synchronized measurements of the phasors, frequency and the rate of change of frequency of the voltage and current signals, and output time stamped phasor data to a communication network using a standard format at a predefined reporting rate.

Software Defined Networks for the Electric Power and Energy Systems

In recent years, Software Defined Vehicular Networks (SDVN) [1], have been emerged as a promising technology to simplify network management and enable innovation through network programmability. Thus, it gains significant attention from academia and industry. The SDN technology allows the decoupling of control and data planes which provides: (i) an abstraction for vehicular applications to the underlying networking infrastructure, and (ii) a logically centralized networking intelligence and network state.

Food for thought on a blue Monday

Tis impossible to be sure of any thing but Death and Taxes

[The Cobbler of Preston by Christopher Bullock (1716)]

Maybe is blue Monday effect [1], maybe is just sheer experience, but over the years I have come to the conclusion that, in the cyber-world (that has become another view of the whole world), there are not two sure things, but three sure things; death, taxes and to be hacked [2].

With a generation more and more distributed, clients and families who became prosumers (consumers able to produce), technologies (like the blockchain) enables a democratization of producing and selling energy, the Utility future role, both in Distribution and Marketing, will change. The Utility role, in fact, will be more important than before.
