Resilient control systems: Next generation design research

  title={Resilient control systems: Next generation design research},
  author={Craig G. Rieger and David I. Gertman and Miles A. McQueen},
  journal={2009 2nd Conference on Human System Interactions},
Since digital control systems were introduced to the market more than 30 years ago, the operational efficiency and stability gained through their use have fueled our migration and ultimate dependence on them for the monitoring and control of critical infrastructure. While these systems have been designed for functionality and reliability, a hostile cyber environment and uncertainties in complex networks and human interactions have placed additional parameters on the design expectations for…

A hybrid theoretical framework for robust and resilient control design in which the stochastic switching between structure states models unanticipated events and deterministic uncertainties in each structure represent the known range of disturbances is proposed.

Resilient Control Systems—Basis, Benchmarking and Benefit

This review covers a rapidly maturing framework based upon a disturbance and impact resilience evaluation process that considers both the methodologies for assessing resilience and also how key design principals must be applied within distributed control systems to achieve resilience.

A Multi-Agent Framework for Resilient Enhancement in Networked Control Systems

This paper focuses on the development of an architecture relying on a hierarchical multi-agent framework for resilience enhancement, evaluated on a test-bed comprising several distributed computational devices and heterogeneous communications.

A resilient control system promises to purposefully consider the multiple facets of requirements that drive the performance of control systems in a holistic fashion, developing an adaptive capacity to complex events that can lead to failure of traditional control system designs.

Agent-based cyber control strategy design for resilient control systems: Concepts, architecture and methodologies

An integrated approach is taken to develop a holistic understanding of performance inside a multi-agent design, which provides a notional context to model highly decentralized and complex industrial process control systems, the nervous system of critical infrastructure.

Weak resilience of networked control systems

A method for designing a compensator which ensures the weak resilience of the compensated system and is illustrated by a power system example based on the IEEE 14-bus test system.

Game-Theoretic Methods for Robustness, Security, and Resilience of Cyberphysical Control Systems: Games-in-Games Principle for Optimal Cross-Layer Resilient Control Systems

This work states that a computer worm, Stuxnet, was spread to target Siemens supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that are configured to control and monitor specific industrial processes.

Network structure for low level control systems designed to prevent cyber attacks

Development of hardware and software modules that will enable interlocked protection functions for hydropower plants so that level 1 control systems cannot be compromised by cyber attack or distraction in industrial control networks.

A survey on the recent development of securing the networked control systems

A wealth of resilient control methodologies are presented which aim to securing the control system and various types of control-system-oriented cyber attacks are introduced.



Control Techniques for Complex Networks

The workload model that is the basis of traditional analysis of the single queue becomes a foundation for workload relaxations used in the treatment of complex networks and Lyapunov functions and dynamic programming equations lead to the celebrated MaxWeight policy.
