Our April seminar will feature Jianhui Wang of Argonne National Laboratory. His presentation title is "A Resilient Self-Healing Cyber Security Framework for the Power Grid."
The power grid is increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure in order to support the numerous power system applications necessary to provide improved grid monitoring, protection, and control capabilities. Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection, and Control (WAMPAC) applications form the backbone of the bulk power system that relies on wide-area measurements transmitted over communication networks for real-time operational, protection, and control functions. Cyber security and resiliency of WAMPAC is critically important to ensure secure, reliable, and economic operation of the bulk power system. In this talk, we will discuss developing, prototyping, and evaluating application layer attack resilient solutions for WAMPAC cyber security. The applications include State Estimation, Self-healing PMU Network (Wide-area Monitoring), Remedial Action Schemes (Wide-area Protection), and Automatic Generation Control and Optimal Power Flow (Wide-area Control). We will also discuss various case studies for each application and other cyber security projects at Argonne including cloud computing, distribution system cybersecurity, etc.
Jianhui Wang (M’07-SM’12) received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois, USA, in 2007. Dr. Wang is the secretary of the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Power System Operations, Planning & Economics Committee. He is the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Smart Grid and an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer. He is the recipient of the IEEE PES Power System Operation Committee Prize Paper Award in 2015.
