Visible to the public Resiliency-Aware Deployment of SDN in Smart Grid SCADA: A Formal Synthesis Model

The supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) network in a smart grid must be reliable and efficient to transmit real-time data to the controller, especially when the system is under contingencies or cyberattacks. Introducing the features of software-defined networks (SDN) into a SCADA network helps in better management of communication and deployment of novel grid control operations.


Visible to the public Formal Synthesis of Trajectories for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Perform Resilient Surveillance of Critical Power Transmission

A smart grid is a widely distributed engineering system with overhead transmission lines. Physical damage to these power lines, from natural calamities or technical failures, will disrupt the functional integrity of the grid. To ensure the continuation of the grid's operational flow when those phenomena happen, the grid operator must immediately take steps to nullify the impacts and repair the problems, even if those occur in hardly-reachable remote areas.
