2007 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, ISSN 0885-8950, E-ISSN 1558-0679, Vol. 22, no 1, 76-84 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We show how concepts from game theory can be used to find and evaluate strategies for defending an electric power system against antagonistic attacks. Consequently, the interaction between the antagonist and the defender of the system is envisaged as a game. In a numerical example, we study the performance of different defense strategies against a number of attack scenarios. Particularly, we study whether there is a dominant defense strategy and an optimal allocation of resources between protection of components and recovery.
