7th Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems
Modeling and Simulation of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems
Part of the Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet-of-Things Week (CPS Week), the 7th Workshop on Modeling and Simulation of Cyber-Physical Energy Systems brings together researchers and industrialists to exchange ideas and newest research results on the applications of cyber-physical energy systems, co-simulation of multi-domain systems, smart grid modeling, design of simulations/experiments, among others.
Title: Real-Time Cyber-Physical Simulation of the Electric Power Grid for Cybersecurity studies
Date and time: April 15th, 2019 from 10:30AM-12:10PM

This demonstration of a Cyber-Physical System Real-Time Simulation involves a microgrid subjected to cyber attacks. An OPAL-RT Real-Time Simulator is used to co-simulate a microgrid system, including generation, power converters, and loads, as well as a microgrid controller. The microgrid system and controller are connected via IEC 61850 GOOSE messages in order to transmit measurements and commands. A high-fidelity communication network emulator, EXata, is also running on the Real-Time Simulator to emulate the communication between the microgrid and controller. Using EXata, command and measurement signals between the controller and microgrid are subjected to cyber attacks causing unexpected behavior within the system. In summary, this is a novel example using high-fidelity off-the-shelf tools to co-simulate electric power grids and industrial communication networks in Real-Time for Cyber-Physical System simulation, allowing for the creation of rich scenarios for advanced Cybersecurity studies.
