Securing Smart Grid Communication against False Data Injection Attacks

A. Anandhi, Dr. G. Kalpana


The traditional energy networks to smart grids transformation can help in improving the reliability, performance and manageability.An efficient and real-time scheme to detect FDI(False Data Injection) attacks in smart grids, by exploiting spatial-temporal correlations between grid components. False data injection attacks have recently been introduced as an important class of cyber attacks against smart grids’ wide area measurement and monitoring systems. Once the attack is been detected, the system can take preventive action and alert the manager to take preventative action to sense the risk and to limit the risk. Defensive strategies is been presented against such attacks.
