Join us for a free webinar on hardware-in-the-loop testing for prevention and survival of cyber-physical attacks on the power system. Real-time simulators can be a crucial component of cybersecurity testbeds, in which the simulated power system is connected to real protection, control, and measurement equipment and subjected to cyber attacks. This provides a realistic, flexible, and contained environment for the validation of energy system security technologies.
