Event Description

Full Description:
Prof Shiyan Hu, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Michigan Technological University

The massive deployment of advanced metering infrastructures and smart home energy systems has mandated a transformative shift of the classical grid towards a more reliable smart grid. Despite its importance, such a cyber-physical system is vulnerable to various cyberattacks such as pricing cyberattack and energy theft. In this talk, I will first show that due to the interdependence between utility pricing and customer energy load, an attacker could tamper with smart meters for electricity bill manipulation and energy load unbalancing. I will then discuss some advanced algorithmic and control theoretic techniques to defend against those attacks, such as partially observable Markov decision process based detection, cross entropy optimization based sensor deployment, etc. I will conclude the talk with some of the ongoing research in this direction.
