This work investigates the impact of the communication-channel cyber attacks on the dynamic performance of the islanded microgrid secondary frequency control. The cyber-physical system structure of the secondary frequency control is described. The secondary frequency control is introduced. A set of cyber attacks including denial of service (DoS) and false data attacks are then modeled. The Canadian urban benchmark distribution system has been built for testing the impact of cyber attacks. The testing results show that both DoS and false data attacks could result in the performance degradation and even the instable operation of the islanded microgrid.
