Abstract

As power systems are gradually evolving into more efficient and intelligent cyber-physical energy systems with the large-scale penetration of renewable energies and information technology, they become increasingly reliant on a more accurate forecasting. The accuracy and generalizability of the forecasting rest to a great extent upon the data quality, which is very susceptible to cyberattacks. False data injection (FDI) attacks constitute a class of cyberattacks that could maliciously alter a large portion of supposedly-protected data, which may not be easily detected by existing operational practices, thereby deteriorating the forecasting performance causing catastrophic consequences in the power system. This paper proposes a novel data-driven FDI attack detection mechanism to automatically detect the intrusions and thus enrich the reliability and resilience of the energy forecasting systems. The proposed mechanism is based on cross-validation and least-squares providing accurate detection with low computational cost and high scalability without utilizing the model and parameters of the system. Effectiveness of the proposed detector is corroborated through six representative tree-based wind power forecasting models including decision tree, bagging, random forest, boosting, gradient boosting, and XGboost. Experiments indicate that corrupted data is properly located and removed, whereby the accuracy and generalizability of the final forecasts is recovered.
