Abstract

This paper focuses on securely estimating the state of a nonlinear dynamical system from a set of corrupted measurements. In particular, we consider a wide class of nonlinear systems, and propose a technique which enables us to perform secure state estimation for such nonlinear systems. We then provide guarantees on the achievable state estimation error against arbitrary corruptions, and analytically characterize the number of errors that can be perfectly corrected by a decoder. To illustrate how the proposed nonlinear estimation approach can be applied to practical systems, we focus on secure estimation for the wide area control of an interconnected power system under cyber-physical attacks and communication failures, and propose a secure estimator for the power system. Finally, we numerically show that the proposed secure estimation algorithm enables us to reconstruct the attack signals accurately.
