Interdependent ICT and Power System State Classification for ICT-reliant Energy Systems

Abstracts from the 8th DACH+ Conference on Energy Informatics
The ongoing decarbonization of power systems depends heavily on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) giving rise to smart grids. ICT enables better monitoring and operation of the grid, but also introduces new challenges. Current methods of system operation assumes the interconnected ICT system to be fully functional. However, past incidents have shown that ICT events can also cause the interconnected power system to fail. This paper presents the idea of joint state classification model capable of analyzing the interdependancy between power and ICT systems. It can be used to analyze the impact of harmful events from both systems in terms of combined system states.
