Secure and Energy Efficient Remote Monitoring Technique (SERMT) for Smart Grid

05/27/2020 ∙ by Sohini Roy, et al. ∙ 0

Monitoring and automation of the critical infrastructures like the power grid is improvised by the support of an efficient and secure communication net-work. Due to the low cost, low power profile, dynamic nature, improved ac-curacy and scalability, wireless sensor networks (WSN) became an attractive choice for the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) system of the smart grid. However, the energy efficiency and security of WSN depends highly on the network design and routing scheme. In this paper, a WSN based Secure and Energy Efficient Remote Monitoring Technique (SERMT) is proposed by demonstrating a WSN based ICT network model for perva-sive monitoring of the generation and transmission part of the power network in a smart grid system. The performance of the proposed network model de-signed for a smart grid of IEEE 118-Bus system coupled with the secure routing technique is tested during cyber-attacks by means of NS2 and the simulation results indicate that it performs better than existing smart grid monitoring methods like Lo-ADI [1] with respect to packet drop count and throughput.
