Dr Peter Palensky
Depatment of Electric Sustainable Energy,Technische Universiteit Delft,Netherlands
Peter Palensky received his MSc. in Electrical Engineering in 1997 his PhD in 2001, and his Habilitation in 2015, all from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria. He co-founded a Envidatec, a German startup on energy management and analytics, and joined the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CA, as researcher, and the University of Pretoria, South Africa, in 2008. In 2009 he became appointed head of business unit on sustainable building technologies at the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT), and later the first Principle Scientist for complex energy systems at the AIT. In 2014 he was appointed full Professor for intelligent electric power grids at TU Delft. He is active in international committees like ISO or CEN and serves an IEEE IES AdCom member-at-large in various functions for the IEEE. He is editor in chief of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Magazine, associate editor for several other IEEE publications, and regularly organizes IEEE conferences. His main research fields are energy automation networks, smart grids, and modeling intelligent energy systems.
Speech Title:Cyber security of modern power systems
Abstract:The power system - man's largest machine - receives increasing attention from questionable parties. Activist hackers, terrorists, digital vandals, state player attacks: they all aim at the digital assets of modern power systems in order to impact the physical half of it. Industrial control systems for power systems are one element in this landscape that is targeted. This talk will introduce you to cyber-physical power systems and explain which threats we have to deal with now and in future. It will also explain some known attacks of recent years and demonstrate you how to hack digital power system protection and that this could lead to cascading outages - more prominently known as blackouts.
