Industrial developments suggest that we are moving for a more integrated energy environment with increasing renewable production and the proliferation of sources of RE. With intelligent devices coming in, the emphasis on cybersecurity for an evolving grid is growing more strongly, whereas distributed networked power systems are being built to securely supply end-user electricity; sustain power in a malevolent environment; maintain power as and when needed; conserve energy for the duration of the mission; deliver energy at the lowest predictable cost. If connectivity and energy distribution rates grow, the number of access points for future cyber-attacks will increase.

The most relevant areas for study are power and communication systems emulation; optimised coding for distributed energy resources; site security assessment; security standards of emerging technologies; generational level cyber security; and interconnected level cyber security.

With reference to Phasor Measurement Unit, the major areas are monitoring and Control of Renewable Energy Sources including uncertainty analysis and risk assessment for effective decision-making; Wide-area monitoring – assessing the health of the entire power system before protection and control decisions need to be made; Power system monitoring – monitoring system events, post-event analyses, power system state estimation, and oscillation frequency and damping; Power system protection – detecting phase-angle instability, providing back-up protection for distance relays, and assessing the health of the whole system rather than only the local health; Power system control – controlling high-voltage, direct-current systems; power system stabilizers; and Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS); and enabling renewable energy power plants to provide damping of oscillations; Power system model validation; Design and simulation issues for secure power networks as resilient smart grid infrastructure; Transmission and distribution (T&D) network monitoring and control; Secure and Cost-Effective Metering Systems Using Block chain assisted smart technologies.
