---------------------------------------------
With increasing dependence on modern information and communication technology, a future smart grid is potentially more vulnerable to coordinated cyber attacks launched by an adversary. In this talk, we consider several possible attack mechanisms aimed at disrupting real-time operations of a power grid. In particular, we are interested in dynamic attack strategies on the power system state estimation that lead to infeasible real-time dispatch and disrupt the real-time market operation.
