Course Description:

Graduate course covers the theory, principles, and methodologies in cyber physical and energy
security systems for electric power grids, especially Smart Grids. The course us
e top
-
down system
of systems methodology to decompose the seven operational domains of the Smart Grid as defined
by the NIST Smart Grid Interoperability Panel working groups. Theory and principles for
information technology and communications network encry
ption, key management, and defense n
depth are covered. Communication network technologies used in Smart Grid are summarized, such
ZigBee, WiFi, IPv6, and WiMax. Principles and methodologies are applied to several operational
scenarios in electric power ut
ilities, such as demand response, advanced metering infrastructure,
energy management systems, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, distribution
systems, customer premises, and operations center. Energy security principles are covered using
de
sign and implementation methods for Microgrids to achieve improved system resiliency and
availability. Examples of modeling and simulation of communications networks and electric power
grids are covered. The course presents several case studies in cyber an
d energy security solutions
and deployments. The course objective is to provide an operational view and working knowledge of
cyber and energy security topics and solutions in Smart Grids.


Prerequisites:

CS5303 Logical Foundations of Computer Science, SE53
41 Systems Engineering Fundamentals &
Architectures, or Permission of the Instructor.


Student Participation and Grading:

Students are expected to participate in class discussions, class projects, and semester projects.
Students are required to make class
presentations on projects as individuals or in team projects.
Students are required to participate in a semester project. The class grading will be determined by
class participation level, class project presentations, and the semester project. Semester pro
ject
includes a project presentation and written report.
