Introduction

There is a rapid growth of power system infrastructure in domains such as generation, transmission, distribution, markets and end consumer demand all over India. This growth has also resulted in enormous expansion of communication and information technology (IT) infrastructure. Manual controls are being replaced by remote, electronic controls triggered by software commands. This scenario exposes new vulnerabilities of the smart grid in the form of cyber-attacks and hence need to be addressed. Apart from physical security and power system operational security, cyber security has also become a major concern.

​Objectives

  • To develop smart grid cyber security requirements in Indian context.
  • To propose a risk assessment framework to evaluate the risk of each smart grid component throughout its lifecycle.
  • To develop a cyber-security approach and checklist useful for utilities
  • To propose risk mitigation measures, regulatory and policy measures for security, legal and information privacy issues.
