The power grid is increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure in order to support the numerous power system applications necessary to provide improved grid monitoring, protection, and control capabilities. Wide-Area Monitoring, Protection, and Control (WAMPAC) applications form the backbone of the bulk power system that relies on wide-area measurements transmitted over communication networks for real-time operational, protection, and control functions. Cyber security and resiliency of WAMPAC is critically important to ensure secure, reliable, and economic operation of the bulk power system. In this talk, we will discuss developing, prototyping, and evaluating application layer attack resilient solutions for WAMPAC cyber security. The applications include State Estimation, Self-healing PMU Network (Wide-area Monitoring), Remedial Action Schemes (Wide-area Protection), and Automatic Generation Control and Optimal Power Flow (Wide-area Control). We will also discuss various case studies for each application and other cyber security projects at Argonne including cloud computing, distribution system cybersecurity, etc.  Resilient Self-Healing Cyber Security Framework for Power Grid
