Cloud Simulation and Virtualization for Testing of Critical Energy Infrastructure Components
Keywords:critical energy infrastructure, simulation models, virtual resources and technology
Cloud computing and cloud infrastructure are beginning to be applied in order to ensure effective functioning of management system of Critical Energy Infrastructure. This is improved informativeness of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system by the application of additional Wide-area Measurement and Control Systems (WAMCSs), since most of all processing and transition operations of data information streams of the WAMCSs may be performed by using on clouds. In light of these circumstances, it is importantly to get extensive modeling results considering wide area range of input data and latency time between critical energy infrastructure components and cloud infrastructure components. However, researchers were not, yet, had possibility to receive more adequate results based only mathematical modeling process. In this case, simulation models considering the cost time are more preferable than mathematical models. In the spirit development of this conception, authors are proposing to employ the simulation model based on virtual technology and Matlab Simulink toolkit in order to get modeling results for more important on-line mode of functioning of the WAMCSs.
