Novel Approach for Vulnerability Analysis in Pilot Smart Power Grid System


Dharmendra Yadav, Anjali Mahajan


Vol. 16  No. 7  pp. 48-53


The term smart-grid was coined in early part of last decade and since then it has been developing rapidly across the wide range of energy generating and distributing systems such as solar energy, wind energy, bio fuels, geothermal and hydroelectric energy with an aim to improve the economy, safety and durability of power supply. On the down side, due to the distributed nature and complex architecture with multiple domain line like IT, power and telecommunication. There has been increase in dependency on cyber resources which may be vulnerable to attack. To tackle these issues a proper and efficient Information security risk management is required. In this paper, a novel framework for vulnerability analysis in smart power grid system has been presented which may be of tremendous potential and application for enhancing the cyber security of the smart grid. That is done through the case study of pilot grid in India with exposure evaluation existing well defined scoring system.
