The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Transmission Reliability Program is supporting the
research, deployment, and demonstration of various wide area measurement system
(WAMS) technologies to enhance the reliability of the Nation’s electrical power grid.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) was tasked by the DOE National
SCADA Test Bed Program to conduct a study of WAMS security. This report represents
achievement of the milestone to develop a generic WAMS model description that will
provide a basis for the security analysis planned in the next phase of this study.
