Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,
We would like to invite submissions to a Special Issue of Energies on the subject of Power System and Energy Internet entitled “Smart Power System and Energy Internet”.

Due to environmental concerns, energy security risks, and fossil fuel problems, many countries around the world have decided to replace their conventional power and energy systems with new types of these systems built based on newly suggested concepts such as smart grid and energy Internet. The smart grid concept aims to improve the infrastructure of traditional power systems via the deployment of new measurement devices, such as PMUs, that enable the replacement of traditional SCADA systems with new monitoring and control systems called wide-area monitoring systems (WAMSs). At the distribution level, smart grids enable the usage of the Internet of Things (IoT) and demand-side management programs for enhancing the power system operation, market, and security. This step is necessary for adopting new control and protection schemes based on real-time monitoring techniques that can mitigate the negative impacts of the highly increased share of renewable energy sources on the power systems’ stability and security. On the other hand, the energy Internet concept aims to create a combination of advanced power and electronics technology, information technology and intelligent management technology, and a large number of new power networks, petroleum networks, natural gas networks, etc., which are composed of distributed energy gathering devices, distributed energy storage devices and various types of loads. The energy nodes are intelligently interconnected to achieve an energy reciprocal exchange and sharing a network with a two-way flow of energy.

With the push for higher efficiency and reliability, an increasing number of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) and associated information and communication technology (ICT) are integrated into the Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled smart grid. These advanced technologies and IEDs also bring potential vulnerabilities to the intelligent cyber–physical smart grid. State estimation, as a primary step of system monitoring and situational awareness, is a potential target for attackers. A number of other smart grid applications, such as voltage stability assessment and contingency screening, utilize state estimation results as input data. False data injection (FDI) is a specific way to attack state estimation by manipulating input data. Existing research mainly focuses on the mathematical analysis of FDI attacks; however, in these methods, discussions of reachability requirements to compromise measurements considering cyberinfrastructure are limited. Reachability is defined as a measure that estimates the number of hosts to compromise for the possible FDI. Most of the existing FDI attack methods require the simultaneous manipulation on multiple measurement devices in different substations, in order to bypass the bad data detection, which may be impractical. In this paper, a new type of reachability-based FDI attack considering the cybernetwork with a practical attack is proposed and validated on two IEEE test systems. The corresponding defence mechanisms are (a) decentralized state estimation (DSE), (b) DSE with additional backup computational nodes, (c) communication network rerouting, and (d) intrusion detection system, and they were developed and presented with validation for two IEEE test systems with superior performance for an IoT-enabled intelligent smart grid system.
