Abstract:In our society the power grid is one of the most important systems which we cannot do without. The rise of local renewable energy production results in localized smart grids which can govern themselves, also known as micro grids. To keep the grids stable, control mechanisms are used. These can be localized, centralized or a combination of both. Due to the high availability requirement of these grids and control mechanisms they are a likely target for cyber attacks. This paper shows the weaknesses and strengths of an auction control mechanism and a control mechanism based on local voltage measurements during attacks such as DDoS and data injection.
