on Smart Grid Cyber Security

  title={on Smart Grid Cyber Security},
  author={Todd Baumeister},
The current U.S. electrical power grid is an out-of-date infrastructure, and the Smart Grid is an upgrade that will add many new functionalities to meet customers’ new power requirements. Updating a system as complex as the electrical power grid has the potential of introducing new security vulnerabilities into the system. This document presents a review of the work related to Smart Grid cyber security. The work reviewed is separated into five categories that make up different components of the…
