With the emergence of cyber-physical systems (CPS), we are now at the brink of next computing revolution. The Smart Grid (SG) built on top of IoT (Internet of Things) is one of the foundations of this CPS revolution, which involves a large number of smart objects connected by networks. The volume of time series of SG equipment is tremendous and the raw time series are very likely to contain missing values because of undependable network transferring. The problem of storing a tremendous volume of raw time series thereby providing a solid support for precise time series analytics now becomes tricky. In this article, we propose a dependable time series analytics (DTSA) framework for IoT-based SG. Our proposed DTSA framework is capable of providing a dependable data transforming from CPS to the target database with an extraction engine to preliminary refining raw data and further cleansing the data with a correction engine built on top of a sensor-network-regularization-based matrix factorization method. The experimental results reveal that our proposed DTSA framework is capable of effectively increasing the dependability of raw time series transforming between CPS and the target database system through the online lightweight extraction engine and the offline correction engine. Our proposed DTSA framework would be useful for other industrial big data practices.
