Title: Smart Energy Cyber-PhysicalSystems: Big Data Analytics and Cyber Security
Abstract: A smart energy cyber-physical system is characterized bythe interactions among the sensing devices and the physical energy system. Bigdata analytics techniques can be leveraged to improve the situational awarenessof the energy system. Major challenges include how to decide whether the sensordata are accurate and trustworthy as well as how to assess the system stateeven if those data contain uncertainties. In this talk, I will describe asystematic framework, which is based on partially observable Markov decisionprocess, orthogonal matching pursuit, and empirical mode decomposition, todetect anomaly energy usage behavior through analyzing the massive smart meterdata in a community. I will also discuss how this framework can be used fordetecting smart grid cyber attacks such as energy theft. I will conclude thetalk with some of the ongoing research in this topic.
