Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, in partnership with NRECA, is conducting a research project to study the cybersecurity of systems that control inverters, and we are looking for cooperatives to serve as technical advisors. This research will analyze the stability of different control systems, and identify what parameters an attacker would change if DER and utility voltage regulation and protection systems were compromised. The team will develop simulation software that will allow utility engineers to explore scenarios using dynamic modeling and then to test how to mitigate cyberattacks. This advisory provides details on this opportunity.
