Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are a various collection of information communication technology (ICT) and embedded microprocessors which are communicated to the physical world via sensors and actuators. Smart grids are one area of applications of CPS. The remote activities of the smart grid’s CPS are monitored and controlled by specialized computing system called industrial control systems (ICSs) or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems (ICS/SCADA). Hence, it is crucial to keep ICS/SCADA system safe and secure to prevent any cyberattack causing a physical hazard to the smart grid which might affect the human life, national safety, or economy.
