  2. Despite the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) establishing Technical Committee 10 on Design Methodologies with a focus on the cyber-physical security of power electronics systems, a holistic design methodology for addressing security vulnerabilities remains underdeveloped. This gap largely stems from the limited integration of computer science and power/control engineering studies in this interdisciplinary field. Addressing the inadequacy of unilateral cyber or control perspectives, this paper presents a novel four-layer cyber-physical security model specifically designed for electric machine drives. Central to this model is the innovative Control Information Flow (CIF) model, residing within the control layer, which serves as a pivotal link between the cyber layer’s vulnerable resources and the physical layer’s state-space models. By mapping vulnerable resources to control variable space and tracing attack propagation, the CIF model facilitates accurate impact predictions based on tainted control laws. The effectiveness and validity of this proposed model are demonstrated through hardware experiments involving two typical cyber-attack scenarios, underscoring its potential as a comprehensive framework for multidisciplinary security strategies.

    Johnston’s organ, theDrosophilaauditory organ, is anatomically very different from the mammalian organ of Corti. However, recent evidence indicates significant cellular and molecular similarities exist between vertebrate and invertebrate hearing, suggesting thatDrosophilamay be a useful platform to determine the function of the many mammalian deafness genes whose underlying biological mechanisms are poorly characterized. Our goal was a comprehensive screen of all known orthologues of mammalian deafness genes in the fruit fly to better understand conservation of hearing mechanisms between the insect and the fly and ultimately gain insight into human hereditary deafness. We used bioinformatic comparisons to screen previously reported human and mouse deafness genes and found that 156 of them have orthologues inDrosophila melanogaster. We used fluorescent imaging of T2A-GAL4 gene trap and GFP or YFP fluorescent protein trap lines for 54 of theDrosophilagenes and found 38 to be expressed in different cell types in Johnston’s organ. We phenotypically characterized the function of strong loss-of-function mutants in three genes expressed in Johnston’s organ (Cad99C,Msp-300, andKoi) using a courtship assay and electrophysiological recordings of sound-evoked potentials.Cad99CandKoiwere found to have significant courtship defects. However, when we tested these genes for electrophysiological defects in hearing response, we did not see a significant difference suggesting the courtship defects were not caused by hearing deficiencies. Furthermore, we used a UAS/RNAi approach to test the function of seven genes and found two additional genes,CG5921andMyo10a, that gave a statistically significant delay in courtship but not in sound-evoked potentials. Our results suggest that many mammalian deafness genes haveDrosophilahomologues expressed in the Johnston’s organ, but that their requirement for hearing may not necessarily be the same as in mammals.
