Nowadays, considering the growing demand for the DC loads and simplified interface with renewable power generation sources, DC microgrids could be cost effective solution for the power supply in small scale area. the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system maintain the bidirectional power communication through the internet connectivity with the microgrid. However, this intelligent and interactive feature may pose a cyber-security threat to the power grid. this work aims to exploring cyber-security issues and their solutions for the DC microgrid system. To mitigate the adverse effects of various cyber-attacks such as the False Data Injection (FDI) attack, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack etc., two new techniques based on non-linear and proportional-integral (PI) controllers have been proposed. Simulation results obtained from MATLAB/Simulink software demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods in mitigating the adverse effects of cyber-attacks on the DCMG system performance.
