Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: CIF: Small: Integrated Framework for Detection and Mitigation of GPS Spoofing Attacks in Smart Grids

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: Natl Science Fdn

Program Title: N/A
CFDA Linked: Computer and Information Science and Engineering


Sensors such as phasor measurement units (PMUs) endowed with GPS receivers are ubiquitously installed providing real time grid-visibility. A number of PMUs can cooperatively enable state estimation (SE) routines. However, GPS spoofing attacks can notably alter the PMU measurements and consequently mislead the network operator and drastically impact subsequent corrective, control actions. Leveraging a novel measurement model that explicitly accounts for the GPS spoofing attacks, this proposal develops methods to analyze the vulnerability of power grids to GPS spoofing, and to identify and mitigate GPS spoofing attacks.
