Power utilities use a broad range of Industrial Control systems (ICS) to manage their operations in their zones: Power Generation, High Voltage (HV) Transmission System operation (TSO), Medium Voltage (MV) Distribution System operation (DSO), MV Distributed Generation, Low Voltage (LV) power delivery and LV Distributed Generation. Each zone includes mechanical assets, computers, and communications, some of which perform local control within their zone and others that communicate with other zones. This power grid structure is in line with the deployment of the smart grid, distributed generation, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). These IIoT-type ecosystems enhance the control capability on the one hand but also increase the cyber-attack surface.
