In this chapter, we exploit the deep learning and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) techniques to develop an intelligent situational awareness system for energy management systems of the emergency hybrid auxiliary power unit (APU) for more-electric aircrafts. Our proposed security control strategy consists of two main mechanisms: (1) deep learning-based attack detection scheme that explores the techniques of convolutional neural networks, deconvolutional neural networks, and recurrent neural networks and (2) adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS)-based estimation method to calculate the true values of the compromised data. In this chapter, we also present some simulation results to illustrate the effectiveness of our proposed method in detecting the cyber-attacks, such as false data injection (FDI) attacks, and mitigating the impact of the cyber-attacks in the energy management for the hybrid APUs in more-electric aircrafts.
