Hydropower Cyber-Physical Reference Framework

This project will support the Water Power Technologies Office efforts to secure infrastructure associated with an increasingly automated and connected hydropower fleet. Energy security will be enhanced by shortening the timelines for the identification and mitigation of risks. Successful mitigation will enhance the reliability and resiliency of the U.S. power grid. Achieving security in the application of automation will enable more flexible operations, improving the ability to provide auxiliary services which support grid stability.
