Abstract

An emergency energy system is a backup power system used in critical situations with the aim of protecting lives and property from the consequences of energy loss, as is the case in hospitals (heart monitors, Ventilator,…etc), and also in sensitive facilities (military industries and government buildings). The emergency power system can contain batteries of all kinds, in addition to solar and wind energy equipment and other cheap types of energy. The concept of cyber security arose several decades after the invention of the computer. At first, there was no need for cyber security, as it was difficult for electronic attacks to occur, because access to computers was limited to specific numbers of users, as the devices were giant confined to a room with certain specifications and were not Linked to networks at the time, Energy sectors expose themselves to a range of cyber threats that can damage control systems. So management, engineering, and IT must adhere to a comprehensive approach that includes threat prevention, detection, and elimination. In this research we will try to mitigate the effects of the cyber attack on these systems by applying some algorithms in order to detect, identify and prevent such attacks, and we will see through the results we obtained that we have made remarkable progress in this field.
