Cyber-resiliency of digitalised power grids
The digitization of the power grid is one of the key components to support a cost-effective transition toward “Net-zero”. However, the increasing cyber-physical dependency causes potential vulnerabilities against cyber-attacks that may lead to catastrophic damages in the power grid. It is hence critical to understand such vulnerabilities and develop capabilities to maintain the safe operation under those attacks. This talk will introduce a cyber-resiliency framework that includes prevention, detection, mitigation, recovery and the interactions among them. We will then focus on presenting a proactive defence strategy for attack detection and the “safe-mode” operation strategy for attack migration.
Dr Fei Teng is the Director of Education at Energy Futures Lab and a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London. His research focuses on the power system operation with high penetration of inverter-based resources and the cyber resiliency of digitalized power systems. He has authored more than 80 scientific publications in leading power system journals and conferences. He is the recipient of the IEEE TC-SDM Early Career Award and the Royal Society Kan Tong Po International Fellowship. His research has been funded by EPSRC, ESRC, Innovate UK, Research England, the Royal Society, EDF Energy, Hitachi, and National Grid ESO.
