Real-Time (co-)Simulation for Cybersecurity


Project Description

The objective of this project is to use Real-Time Simulation (RTS) and co-simulation models for real-time prediction and control of disturbances related with attacks propagation. Essentially, the goal is to study how RTS via real-time communication interfaces of different RTS tools can run systems security, resilient and isolation algorithms in order to monitor and control the system under study.

About the

Charalambos Konstantinou

Assistant Professor, Computer Science

Charalambos Konstantinou

​Professor Konstantinou's research interests are in secure, trustworthy, and resilient cyber-physical and embedded IoT systems. He is also interested in critical infrastructures security and resilience with special focus on smart grid technologies, renewable energy integration, and real-time simulation.

Desired Project Deliverables

The goal of this project is to develop and implement models in RTS using OPAL-RT hardware and software to study how cyber-attacks effects can propagate in real-time and investigate controls able to isolate such impact. Students should have backgrounds and experience using real-time simulators software such as RT-LAB, HYPERSIM, RSCAD, etc.
