The Future Self-Organizing Energy Networks (FUSE) project at TU Wien is a joint effort of two Institutes of TU Wien for implementing a real microgrid and will study and develop novel methods for supporting islanding and reconnection operations. Supported by Synchrophasor Measurement Units (PMU), one main challenge of the project is secure acquisition and processing of high-rate time-critical PMU sensor data for controlling the reconnection operation. The Communication Networks group of the Institute of Telecommunications at TU Wien is researching on grid monitoring and security aspects with particular focus on anomaly detection methods in critical infrastructures that enable early detection of suspicious behavior – caused either by malfunction or by attacks. The proposed talk discusses opportunities, challenges and lessons learned in deploying and using the OSIsoft PI System in academic research for critical infrastructures.
Joachim Fabini holds a diploma degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Technical Computer Sciences and a PhD (Dr. techn.) in Electrical Engineering, both from TU Wien, Austria. Since 2013, he has been a Senior Scientist with the Communication Networks group at the Institute of Telecommunications.
His research interests include measurement methodologies and metrics in packet-switched networks, time synchronization and security aspects with particular emphasis on access networks, machine-type communications and critical infrastructures like the Smart Grid.
Joachim has authored and co-authored publications with specific focus on measurement methodology, networking and multimedia communications. He actively participates in IETF standardization, is involved as researcher and project leader in funded and applied industrial research projects and teaches master-level communication networking lectures and laboratories at TU Wien.
