Testbed Overview

The PowerCyber testbed provides a realistic electric grid control infrastructure based on a combination of physical, simulated, and emulated components. The testbed integrates industry standard control software, communication protocols, and field devices combined with power system simulators to provide an accurate representation of cyber-physical grid interdependencies. The testbed provides numerous cyber-security and power system research capabilities including:

  • Cyber vulnerability assessment
  • Attack impact analysis
  • Mitigation strategy evaluations
  • Cyber-physical system security studies
  • Cyber attack-defense exercise
  • Education and industry cyber security training
