Abstract

Today, there are ever increasing demands on hydro-electrical power plant controllers. They have to deal with a power grid that becomes ever more unpredictable due to renewable energies. Furthermore, power plants represent a critical infrastructure that have to provide a full operation, even in the presence of cyber-attacks and internal faults.

Here, we present an approach towards tackling these challenges by integrating the knowledge of multiple research domains such as security, fault tolerance and modeling. We propose a distributed infrastructure that provides resilience via an assured dynamic self-adaption. Further, we show the integration into an existing hydropower plant unit control. %how to integrate this approach into an existing infrastructure for hydro-electrical power plants.
