The cybersecurity of grid-connected power electronics is a rapidly developing field as more and more of these devices become a part of the Internet of Things. The objective of this thesis to analyze the current control signals of a photovoltaic (PV) inverter and develop an interface board for the implementation of a new cyber-secure controller.
In this thesis, the testing and in-depth analysis of the current PV inverter control system will be conducted. Using the data collected, an interface board will be developed to allow the use of the Unified Control Board (UCB), developed by Chris Farnell, in the PV inverter. This UCB will act as the new cyber-secure controller and help satisfy the project requirements of system and inverter level cybersecurity. Finally, after full integration, the PV inverter will undergo a 6-month field demonstration.
