Abstract -
As the world becomes increasingly connected through the rise of smart devices, greater wireless access, and cheaper costs for data, the need for smart grid that digitizes the distribution, monitoring and control of energy usage becomes significant as it also allows bidirectional communication between the consumer and energy provider. Hence, researches are being conducted to provide security and privacy in smart grid. This paper presents a comprehensive survey on attacks and defense mechanisms in Smart Grid. Especially, this paper presents the most common attacks in a smart grid system such as GPS spoofing, Time Synchronization Attack, False data injection, and several others attacks. Finally, this paper analyzes and proposes countermeasures of different attacks.

Abstract -
Due to the complexities and the changing nature of information and data being manipulated in schools in recent times, school administration and management has fundamentally been affected in terms of procedures and practices of governance, hence the need for enhancing school management through ICT in the 21st century has risen. Enhancing the 21st century school management through ICT was borne-out of strong desires to design and propose a school management information system which can efficiently and effectively be used to perform/automate in real time every administrative task involved in school management such as students & staff administration, resources/facilities administration, financial administration, and communication/file administration. The methodology employed in carrying out this research was simple random sampling techniques with some major key stakeholders in school management. This paper exposes the various administrative tasks not being covered by existing school management portals that complement the existing school management portals for effective and better school management. It also defines ICT and its constituting terms such as Information, Communication and Technology. The paper also outlined a number of benefit accruing from enhancing school management, increased workflow and communication channels, reduced list of administration and centralized administration monitoring, to really meet up with the management/administrative demands of the 21st century, it is very paramount to deploy enhanced school management portals.

Abstract -
The objective of this work focuses on the comparative study of energy balance of conventional single-phase power supply for magnetron using different methods. The energy balance study already performed on the classical single phase power supply currently used by most industrial ovens was not experimentally validated. In this article the detailed study of different powers (primary power of the transformer, output power of the transformer and input power of the magnetron) was performed, each of these powers were compared with their corresponding powers obtained experimentally.
