The goal of the project is to create labs for undergraduate and graduate students taking classes in control systems. These labs need to be updated to better teach students relevant concepts they would be working with on the job, and to give them an understanding of new control systems schemes they may be interested in implementing. As many of the students will be working through engineering outreach, a second goal of the project is to develop labs that could be done not on site at the university. We should work to develop labs that could be done on a computer individually, or remotely with a TA.


Problem Definition[edit]

The University of Idaho has acquired numerous industrial control systems devices to allow students to work with them. Current laboratory curriculum for the ECE444 class, Supervisory Control and Critical Infrastructure, has not been updated in several years and is not utilizing some of the newer devices. We are developing laboratory curriculum to replace the current ECE444 laboratory experiments. With access to simulation of cybersecurity simulation testbeds and smart grid simulation testbeds, our group will incorporate the new equipment and concepts into several laboratory experiments. These experiments will be intended to simulate real-world use cases as a means to teach students about the equipment operation. We will also develop a method by which engineering outreach students will be able to perform the experiments as well.

Project Value Statement[edit]

- Developing ICS Lab curriculum will help expedite learning.

- Labs will help students better understand SCADA concepts. 

-Labs will utilize current industry equipment and standards.

Deliverables[edit]

1.Detailed lab exercise guides for student.

2.Setup guides for TA, including equipment, software, and possible error troubleshooting.

3.Appropriately configured software, equipment settings, and upload method.  

Specifications[edit]

- 4 - 5 laboratory exercises following progression of ECE 444/544 class.

- Exercises must be complete within a 2.5-hour timeframe.

-Exercises must have clear documentation for students & lab assistant.

Project deadlines[edit]

The project will follow the same schedule as the senior design course. Dr. Johnson does not want to add unnecessary extra deadlines to our already busy schedules. The first semester will be mainly research based, with the second semester being more focused on the implementation. By the end of this semester, we should finish our research and learning of the different protocols and their uses. We will dedicate more of our time next semester to creating the laboratory experiments and testing them.

Project Learning[edit]

- Review of ECE444 Labs

- RTAC Work with Joe Stanley

-Group Learning of SCADA Concepts
