Advanced Cyber-Physical Analysis for Smart Grid Distributed ICT and IED Resources at RTE France (S-63G)

Summary The availability of a vast number of substation IEDs and distributed computational resources offers great potential for enhancing the smart grid. However, the distributed computing infrastructures in utilities today are nowhere near adequate to exploit this potential, being decades behind those in other industries. This project will lead to several technologies and tools, and analyze others, to help utilities and vendors to develop next-generation cyber-physical infrastructure using distributed ICT and IED resources. The problems addressed by this project, as well as the software released, will be widely applicable to utilities, ISOs, and vendors.
