In an Electrical Power system, distribution substation is an important part of linking between utility to end user consumers. It has a capability to reduce as well as increase the energy supply to the end user consumers from utility generation supply as per requirement of electricity. Though, A Smart Grid is a modernized electrical power system or grid which consist analog or digital communication, information technology and an automated system. It needs to be secured with the help of cyber security. Cyber security is essential for smart grid which requires the network data and communication system to be secured. The stored data and computers need to be secured from hackers and e-threat. With the help of cyber security, Smart Grid can be made more efficient, reliable and secure. The existing power system needs to be upgraded to the next level i.e. Smart Grid. There are lots of challenges for implementing cyber security in Indian smart grid.
