Integrating DoD Security Guidelines in Power System Designs

This course discusses acts of sabotage that have occurred to electric facilities in the United States and how the Department of Defense (DoD) and NRC recommended practices can be implemented to enhance the physical security of electric power systems.

With the development of NERC Reliability Standard CIP-014-2 – Physical Security, electric utilities have begun to consider physical security of transmission lines, transmission substations and associated primary control centers. Other resources, such as the Department of Defense Facilities Planning Manual and Nuclear Power Plant Security and Access Control Standards, provide perspectives for best practices for physical security parameters.

In this course, you compare physical security considerations with nearby ground features; learn the best practices to detect intruders and protect equipment; and understand the differences between protected-area and open-area security.

This course can be applied to the Electrical Engineering Certificate.
