PowerDrone Simulation Framework has been developed using Matlab program and uses some of the dynamic simulation coding from the Power System Toolbox (http://www.etk.ee.kth.se/personal/vanfretti/pst/Power_System_Toolbox_Webpage/PST.html) package. It also leverages the model of Automatic Generation Control (AGC) that we received from Alejandro Dominguez-Garcia, Professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (link to his page: https://aledan.ece.illinois.edu/). PNNL team integrated all of the above-mentioned components, developed additional coding and added wrappers in order to develop this simulation. It is possible to select from pre-loaded power system topologies, enable different grid controls (like AGC, power system stabilizer), add faults, tweak different parameters, add pre-modeled attack scenarios, and run batch simulations to generate data needed for research. Currently, we are focused on two classes of cyber-attacks which can impact the system stability - ramp or step or random attacks, and the program allows the user to select the type, location, magnitude and time of the attack.
