  title={Master ' s Theses 2013 Modelling and Analysis on Smart Grid Against Smart Attacks},
  author={Jun Yan},
Modern power systems worldwide are facing a rising appeal for the upgrade to a highly intelligent generation of electricity networks commonly known as the Smart Grid. Advanced monitoring and control systems like Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) systems have been widely deployed and management based on them provides more flexible and achievable optimal control of power generation, transmission and distribution. However, the growing… 


Cyber-security considerations for the smart grid
The electrical power grid is evolving into the “smart grid.” The goal of the smart grid is to improve efficiency and availability of power by adding more monitoring and control capabilities. These
Smart attacks in smart grid communication networks
This article introduces several intelligent attacks and countermeasures in smart grid communication networks, which aim for maximal damage or benefits by taking advantage of the network structure as well as the protocol functionality.

Distributed Internet-Based Load Altering Attacks Against Smart Power Grids
This paper identifies a variety of practical loads that can be volnurable to Internet-based load altering attacks and overview a collection of defense mechanisms that can help in blocking these attacks or minimizing the damage caused by them.
Securing smart grid: cyber attacks, countermeasures, and challenges
This article describes smart grid goals and tactics, and presents a threelayer smart grid network architecture, and defines a taxonomy of basic cyber attacks, upon which sophisticated attack behaviors may be built.
A Reliability Perspective of the Smart Grid
This paper critically reviews the reliability impacts of major smart grid resources such as renewables, demand response, and storage and observes that an ideal mix of these resources leads to a flatter net demand that eventually accentuates reliability challenges further.
Security Technology for Smart Grid Networks
This paper discusses key security technologies for a smart grid system, including public key infrastructures and trusted computing, which will require significant dependence on distributed intelligence and broadband communication capabilities.
