Guest Editorial Article: Special Issue on Cyber Physical Systems and Security for Smart Grid



Hamid Gharavi


Although there are many important CPS systems in practice, one of the most complex applications is the Smart Grid whose function is to distribute reliable and efficient electric energy with a high degree of sustainability. While the Smart Grid aims to enhance the capabilities of the generation, transmission, and distribution of energy systems, the cyber challenge lies in the realization of the power grid to monitor physical behavior securely and efficiently. This special issue contains several important papers that address some of these critical challenges. While acknowledging its limited coverage, the issue offers a range of interesting and CPS related smart grid contributions such as wide area monitoring systems and control, communication and networking, demand and response, security and privacy.
