Countering threats to the nation’s cyber systems, including both conventional information technology systems and cyber systems in critical infrastructure, has become a major strategic objective. Smart grid technologies promise advances in efficiency, reliability, integration of renewable energy sources, customer involvement, and new markets. To realize those benefits, the grid relies on a cyber measurement and control infrastructure that includes components ranging from smart appliances to automated generation control.
TCIPG research has produced important results and innovative technologies in the following areas:
- Trustworthy Technologies for Wide-Area Monitoring and Control
- Trustworthy Technologies for Local Area Management, Monitoring, and Control
- Responding To and Managing Cyber Events
- Trust Assessment
In addition to those four clusters of closely interrelated research, TCIPG invests in cross-cutting research efforts that address and involve Education and Engagement, Testbed Initiatives, and Industry Interaction and Technology Transfer.
