    A critical consideration in the development of smarter electrical grids is to ensure best security practices. Few terms in the smart grid vocabulary, however, are as overworked and overloaded (i.e., assigned multiple definitions) as the word security. Such definitions range all the way from ensuring reliability "keeping the lights on" to protecting the confidentiality of customer information. This... View full abstract»

    Making the smart grid a reality will entail communication capabilities that do not exist in current power grids and their legacy control systems. New grid elements such as distributed energy generation and PHEVs will necessitate changes in these existing communication networks. These changes will be dictated by the need for new control operations that will allow efficient management of these new e... View full abstract»

    A power grid is a critical infrastructure that relies on supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for monitoring, control, and operation. On top of the power infrastructure reside layers of information and communications technology (ICT) that are interconnected with electric grids. The cyber and power infrastructures together constitute a large, complex cyberphysical system. ICTs o... View full abstract»
