Dependable ICT support of power grid operations

The focus of this result is on dependable ICT support of power grid operation. By recasting the three CRISP experiments into three Scenarios in Chapter 2 we claim that we have a good description of benefits and challenges related to future virtual utilities. Among the challenges are securing trustworthy operation from a technical operation side (avoid disturbances such as blackouts) as wee as from a user-centric business point of view (value added power related services).

Our investigation on proper means to safeguard operations of future virtual utilities begins with an assessment of lessons learned from recent (2003) big blackouts worldwide. We propose an accident diagnosis and repair model (STAMP++ in) suitable for the complex socio-technical system we envisage for future cell-based virtual utilities.

Furthermore, we have developed an experimental platform for security and performance experiments conducted in experiments with IDEA and ECN respectively. The main result are on developments of secure execution environments and a service-oriented architecture supporting dependable cell-based utilities.
