Security Control of Distributed Networked Control Systems

The study of distributed networked control systems (DNCSs) is of great importance due to the wide applications in our critical infrastructures, such as smart grid, water network, transportation, etc. Its security control guarantees the normal operation of critical infrastructures and will seriously affect our daily life if it is under attack. In this talk, we will present the security control for DNCSs from system analysis and control synthesis perspective, which can guarantee the stability of the system under attack and obtain certain optimization goal. The controllability and observability of the system are discussed and the maximum attack survival is considered. Simulations will be given to show the attack effect and verify the effectiveness of the proposed methods.
