Detection of bad data from measurement sensors and bad commands from control centers need to be carried out to avoid instabilities within large power electronics systems. Towards the same, in this paper, model and data driven methods are proposed to identify anomalies in measured data and commands received by large power electronics systems. The large power electronics system considered in this paper is a multi-port autonomous reconfigurable solar power plant (MARS), which consists of photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage systems (ESSs) that connect to high-voltage direct current (HVdc) system and transmission ac power grid. The proposed algorithms in the MARS power plant to detect bad data from measurements and bad commands from control centers are evaluated in simulations and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests. It has been observed that the proposed algorithms are able to detect bad measurements and commands in all the use cases evaluated.
