Security and resiliency analytics for smart grids : static and dynamic approaches by Ehab S Al-Shaer( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book targets the key concern of protecting critical infrastructures such as smart grids. It explains various static and dynamic security analysis techniques that can automatically verify smart grid security and resiliency and identify potential attacks in a proactive manner. This book includes three main sections. The first presents the idea of formally verifying the compliance of smart grid configurations with the security and resiliency guidelines. It provides a formal framework that verifies the compliance of the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) configurations with the security and resiliency requirements, and generates remediation plans for potential security violations. The second section covers the formal verification of the security and resiliency of smart grid control systems by using a formal model to analyze attack evasions on state estimation, a core control module of the supervisory control system in smart grids. The model identifies attack vectors that can compromise state estimation. This section also covers risk mitigation techniques that synthesize proactive security plans that make such attacks infeasible. The last part of the book discusses the dynamic security analysis for smart grids. It shows that AMI behavior can be modeled using event logs collected at smart collectors, which in turn can be verified using the specification invariants generated from the configurations of the AMI devices. Although the focus of this book is smart grid security and resiliency, the included formal analytics are generic enough to be extended to other cyber-physical systems, especially those related to industrial control systems (ICS). Therefore, industry professionals and academic researchers will find this book an exceptional resource to learn theoretical and practical aspects of applying formal methods for the protection of critical infrastructures.--Résumé de l'éditeur
Electrochemical model based fault diagnosis of lithium ion battery by Mohammad Ashiqur Rahman( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A gradient free function optimization technique, namely particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm, is utilized in parameter identification of the electrochemical model of a Lithium-Ion battery having a LiCoO2 chemistry. Battery electrochemical model parameters are subject to change under severe or abusive operating conditions resulting in, for example, Navy over-discharged battery, 24-hr over-discharged battery, and over-charged battery. It is important for a battery management system to have these parameters changes fully captured in a bank of battery models that can be used to monitor battery conditions in real time. In this work, PSO methodology has been used to identify four electrochemical model parameters that exhibit significant variations under severe operating conditions. The identified battery models were validated by comparing the model output voltage with the experimental output voltage for the stated operating conditions. These identified conditions of the battery were then used to monitor condition of the battery that can aid the battery management system (BMS) in improving overall performance. An adaptive estimation technique, namely multiple model adaptive estimation (MMAE) method, was implemented for this purpose. In this estimation algorithm, all the identified models were simulated for a battery current input profile extracted from the hybrid pulse power characterization (HPPC) cycle simulation of a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV). A partial differential algebraic equation (PDAE) observer was utilized to obtain the estimated voltage, which was used to generate the residuals. Analysis of these residuals through MMAE provided the probability of matching the current battery operating condition to that of one of the identified models. Simulation results show that the proposed model based method offered an accurate and effective fault diagnosis of the battery conditions. This type of fault diagnosis, which is based on the models capturing true physics of the battery electrochemistry, can lead to a more accurate and robust battery fault diagnosis and help BMS take appropriate steps to prevent battery operation in any of the stated severe or abusive conditions
Automated formal analytics for smart grid security and resiliency by Mohammad Ashiqur Rahman( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Smart grid is the modernization of the legacy electric power system in which cyber computing and communications are integrated with the physical world of power systems. A smart grid provides efficient and cost-effective management of the grid by allowing real-time monitoring, coordinating, and controlling of the system using communication networks among physical components. A smart grid exhibits complex configurations due to the coexistence of legacy systems with the modern technologies and the interdependency between different cyber and physical components. This inherent complexity significantly increases the vulnerabilities and attack surface in smart grids due to misconfigurations and the lack of security hardening. In a critical infrastructure like smart grid, a security breach can cause devastating damages. Thus, there is a need for formal security analytics to automatically verify smart grid security, provably identify potential attacks and their impacts, and devise cost-effective mitigation plans in a proactive manner. In this dissertation, we focus on achieving these goals through the following three research thrusts

Governance Matters: Power, Corruption, Social Exclusion, and Climate Change in Bangladesh by Mohammad Ashiqur Rahman( )

in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although there is a growing literature on non-climatic drivers of vulnerability to climate change, there are only a few empirical case studies that demonstrate the process through which vulnerability is produced. Moreover, existing climate literatures offer very limited insights on the linkages between governance and vulnerability to climate change. Within the governance framework, this dissertation tends to contribute to the current body of knowledge by exploring the role of governance in producing vulnerability to climate change. Using southwest coastal Bangladesh as an example, this study addresses three specific research questions: (1) how mastaanocracy, a form of uneven power relations shapes vulnerability to climate change; (2) the impact of corruption, particularly bribery and extortion on livelihoods in the face of climate change; and (3) the linkage between social exclusion and climate change vulnerability. Findings suggest that unequal power relation and corruption reduces the ability of the population to cope with the stresses of climate change. Social exclusion adds an extra burden to already vulnerable segments of population. On the other hand, climatic change pushes marginalized community further away thus exacerbating social exclusion. Based on the findings, I argue that it is difficult to build resilience and achieve successful adaptation without addressing the structural factors of power and inequality
