Cyber Security in Smart Grid System

Anoop Jaysawal


Abstract: The smart grid is an evolution of the electrical grid to respond to these challenges. A smart grid is an energy transmission and distribution network enhanced through digital control, monitoring, and telecommunications capabilities. It provides a real-time, two-way flow of energy and information to all stakeholders in the electricity chain, from the generation plant to the commercial, industrial, and residential end user. This evolution is crucial for integrating both renewable and distributed energy resources and to improve the efficiency and sustainability of the electrical grid and associated services. It will also help in other ways, such as enabling:

•      Smart and positive energy infrastructures

•      Increased energy density management during peaks

•      Real-time pricing to customers

•      Integrated mobility services

•      New virtual power plants

•              Micro grid
