Title: Cyber-Security Issues with Hybrid Energy Storage System Located in Smart Grid.
Energy storage system is an essential component for integrating renewable energy sources, such as wind turbine generator system and photovoltaic (PV) system, to a smart power distribution grid. Without the energy storage system, smoothed power cannot be delivered to customers. The charge and discharge of an energy storage system can be regulated through an internet based supervisory control system. However, there is a high possibility of cyber-attacks, which may significantly affect the functionality of the energy storage system. If the energy storage does not function properly, then the distributed generators will provide fluctuated power, voltage and frequency to the customers, i.e., the power quality of the smart grid system will be deteriorated. This talk will address cyber-security issues in a hybrid energy storage system with a view to building a resilient and reliable smart power grid.
