Impacts of malicious data data attack on the real-time electricity market are studied. It is assumed that an adversary has access to a limited number of meters and has the ability to construct data attack based on what it observes. Different observation models are considered. A geometric framework is introduced based on which upper and lower bounds on the optimal data attack are obtained and evaluated in simulations.
