Hardware-in-the-loop High-voltage Direct-current (HVDC) Cybersecurity Testbed

using Real Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) and STM32F429-based Cyber-attack Prototype

Open-source Cybersecurity Testbed for Voltage-source-converter (VSC) HVDC Systems

using MATLAB/Simulink

This example shows a cybersecurity testbed for VSC HVDC transmission system (+/- 60 kV, 1 kA), indicating the small-attack-high-impact phenomenon, where a small perturbation of cyber-attack on HVDC measurement leads to rapid power/current reversal or zero power/current.

To the best knowledge of authors, this example, for the first time, presents an open-source VSC HVDC system with a three-layer hierarchical control that suffers from small-attack-high-impact phenomena.

This example is designed to provide insights for cyber defenders of VSC HVDC systems and for academic purpose only. All rights reserved.
