Electric power system threats of a cyber-physical origin have the potential to significantly disrupt the operation of the electric grid. Historically, the electrical and cyber, communications, and control components have been analyzed separately, yet these electrical and cyber systems are highly interdependent. The purpose of this three day short course is to put grid cyber-physical security issues into operational and actionable context by providing a comprehensive coverage of what is currently known about the impact, modeling, assessment, and defense of cyber-physical threats on the grid.
The course philosophy is to provide in-depth coverage of the topics, using a practical, hands-on approach and will contain interactive, real-time simulations of operational impacts and defense mechanisms of cyber attacks on the grid. The course instructors have wide experience on cyber-physical modeling, analysis, and defense of electric power systems.
