Abstract: Since the past decade, Smart Grid technology has seen an exponential increase. Smart grid is an intelligent power network which is built to supply power and manage power consumption in a reliable and efficient manner. Effective integration of information and communication technologies makes Smart grids an important feature in power systems. As such, security in the smart grid are of utmost importance as it manages important information such as energy distribution and metering. As such, it is crucial to ensure that these smart grid networks are not prone to any attacks. Due to its massiveness, the vulnerabilities in smart grid systems are increased. It is important to address the weaknesses as it may result in the disruption of the entire network. In this project, existing security measures in Smart Grids are analyzed to see if there is any weakness which intruders can use to their benefit. Solutions are proposed to enhance security measures in the smart grid systems so as to protect them from any malicious attacks.
