704: Correlational Analysis of Deployed Frequency Variation Sensors

A number of cyberaware sensors have been designed, developed and deployed around the nation’s electric grid. These simple, inexpensive IoT sensors submit their time- and geo-location stamped frequency, voltage, and phase readings to a cybersecure cloud repository. Authorized users – with crypto-locked “viewers” – may access the data repository for immediate viewing and/or analysis of … Continued
