Abstract: Smart grid has emerged as an option-loaded, efficient replacement of the out-of-date power grid infrastructure. However, with the introduction of smart grid systems and the many benefits that they bring along, we now face new security vulnerabilities. This paper offers a survey of intrusion detection in smart grid and aims to analyse the existing approaches and methods proposed thus far, in trying to tackle security vulnerabilities within smart grid systems.

Keywords: smart grid security; intrusion detection sustems; IDS; security vulnerabilities; survey; literature review.
