Inter-Sector Mapping and Gap Analysis: Energy Delivery System (EDS) Similarities and Differences
Today’s energy delivery systems (EDS) consist of the physical infrastructures that carry electric power, petroleum products, and natural gas to all consumers. In June of 2016 the Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium (CREDC) issued a white paper “Inter-Sector Mapping and Gap Analysis” that explored the operations and interdependencies of these systems, especially the operational similarities. This paper is an adjunct to the original, and examines the key differences in the operations, and the characteristics that create these differences. It also describes industrial control systems as used in the three energy infrastructures and examines functional system and operational characteristics that influence the operations and operating systems of each of the three main EDS. Control systems for each must be designed to support the needs of the system being considered.
