The smart grid is an intelligent next-generation power system that adopts Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to improve efficiency and reliability of power system. The smart grid has received high interest for improving efficiency and reliability of power system. It adopts information and system technology for this purpose and several technologies are considered as system architecture of the smart grid. Consequently security issues of system should be considered for the smart grid. In this paper, system architecture for the smart grid is presented. Requirements of security and solutions for cyber attack in the smart grid also discussed.
