Abstract:

The Virtual Power System Testbed (VPST) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is part of the Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIP) and is maintained by members of the Information Trust Institute (ITI). VPST is designed to be integrated with other testbeds across the country to explore performance and security of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) protocols and equipment. First, we discuss the approach we took to developing virtual SCADA models, validating the models, and how researchers can use the local test bed to validate their own technologies. Then, we discuss potential use cases in order to motivate the integration of VPST with other testbeds, identify requirements of inter-connected testbeds, and describe our design for integration with VPST.
