dc.description.abstract Smart Grids have emerged as a very crucial platform for providing timely, efficient, and uninterrupted power supply to consumers. Communication networks in smart grid bring increased connectivity with increased severe security vulnerabilities and challenges. Smart grid can be a prime target for cyber attack because of its critical nature. As a result, smart grid security is already getting a lot of attention from governments, energy industries, and consumers. The threat of malicious attacks against the security of the Smart Grid infrastructure cannot be overlooked. In this project we created a testbed to simulate attacks on a smart grid power distribution environment. This allows studying the impact and extent of damage an attack can cause to a grid, and provides a platform to investigate, in future research, adequate empirical protection models and tools for smart grid. en_US
