Abstract

The integration of control systems with modern information technologies has posed potential security threats for critical infrastructures. The communication channels of the control system are vulnerable to malicious jamming and Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks, which lead to severe time-delays and degradation of control performances. In this paper, we design resilient controllers for cyber-physical control systems under DoS attacks. We establish a coupled design framework which incorporates the cyber configuration policy of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) and the robust control of dynamical system. We propose design algorithms based on value iteration methods and linear matrix inequalities for computing the optimal cyber security policy and control laws. We illustrate the design principle with an example from power systems. The results are corroborated by numerical examples and simulations.
