SecurityLab for Energy Lab 2.0

The SecurityLab Energy is a scale testbed to represent distributed and networked energy system with typical components and control infrastructure as the ones used in real power network.

The main focus is to recreate a realistic testbed environment in which experiments including attack simulations can be conducted. This would help overcome restrictions related to run experiments in critical infrastructures such as energy systems.

Components will include a small wind turbine, a battery, a photovoltaic system, a smart meter etc. All communication infrastructure components including networking are also provided. Communication protocols and security considerations will be developed with the respect to the latest standards and norms such as IEC 61850 and IEC 62351.

Extensive data will be generated for further investigations of vulnerabilities in energy systems as well for associated security solutions.
