Report on NASPI 2014 Survey of Synchrophasor System Networks

The NASPI (North American SynchroPhasor Initiative) working group brings together power engineers and other people from electric utilities, from power equipment vendors, and from academia. NASPI's objective is to improve the reliability, throughput, efficiency, and economics of the electric power grid by accelerating the widespread deployment of devices called PMUs (Phasor Measurement Units). A PMU makes fine-grained time-synchronized measurements of the electrical state of a particular point on the grid.

CSET 2012 Workshop Report

I attended the USENIX CSET Workshop last month. This was the 5th CSET workshop.  The papers this year represented testbed designs, usage and education.  We had two papers from the DETER team - "Beyond Disk Imaging for Preserving User State in Network Testbeds" by Jelena Mirkovic, Abdulla Alwabel and Ted Faber and "Analyzing Resiliency of the Smart Grid Communication Architectures under Cyber Attack" by  Anas AlMajali, Arun Viswanathan, and Clifford Neuman. You can see copies of them and the presentations below.
