National Report on Research Directions for Future Cyber Physical Energy Systems
This report is part of a series of prospective technical studies conducted by the High Confidence Software and Systems (HCSS) Coordinating Group (CG), one of eight Program Component Areas (PCAs) of the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development(NITRD) Program, a part of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), Executive Office of the President. Sponsor agencies for the workshop include NIST, NSA, and NSF, along with the National Coordination Office (NCO) for NITRD. The NSTC is the primary mechanism in which the President coordinates science and technology across the Federal government domain.
The report’s objective is to focus national attention on the importance of identifying the R&D required for designing, deploying, and operating the Future Energy Cyber-Physical Systems (ENCPS). The Workshop addressed the R&D challenges and opportunities for building the next generation of high-confidence energy cyber-physical and energy systems that are innovative, resilient and sustainable.
This report, a tangible outcome of the workshop, provides a full account of the ENCPS Workshop proceedings as well as the technical findings, research challenges. The Executive Summary for this report was prepared by the Principal Investigator of the National Science Foundation sponsored project Award Number 0848223. Funding was provided under this project to sponsor the Workshop on R&D Needs for Future Cyber-Physical Energy Systems. The summary is this project’s PI vision for a possible National R&D Program which would greatly catalyze progress toward concepts underlying more efficient, clean and reliable Information technology (IT)-enabled energy services. The major technical findings from each breakout session are presented in this report. This material summarizes the views of invited academic and industry speakers to the workshop. Several appendices are attached and they include Workshop Agenda and Presentation Slides. Any other material can be found at the Carnegie Mellon University website: http://www.ece.cmu.edu/~nsf-cps/
