2121 – Supervisory Control System (SCADA)
The objective of this course is to discuss the application of SCADA systems (EMS, and DISTRIBUTION AUTOMATION), and to present the main features of modern installations including equipment layout, communications, operations and maintenance. After completion of this videotape and associated workbook, the participant will be able to understand the following concepts, and apply them to his day to day work activities. He will also be able to answer related test questions: Typical applications of SCADA, Basic features of SCADA, i.e. remote data collection, transmission, processing, display, remote control, Polling by RTU address, RTU reporting by exception; 2 second updates, Control commands; select – check – operate sequence, RTU data collection, Analog points, transducers, analog digital conversion, RTU inputs; analog, status points, pulse accumulation, RTU outputs; control of switching, load shedding, generation, Review of binary numbering system, Modems, signal transmission, FSK, PSK, A.M. Rate of signal transmission, baud, Components of 32 bit signal, Communication line arrangements, i.e. party-line, or separate radial connections, Master station assembly and peripherals, Front-end communications controller: functions, Display computer, display stations, operator input, Standby (redundant) station, failover, Applications software, executive software, CPU priority tasking, On-line diagnostics, Operator interface, workstations, Operator input, display response, Power system equipment status, tagging, Alarm system, Logging, reports, trends, sequence-of-events, SCADA installations, power supply, Preventive maintenance activities, Functional tests, test sets, test points, Software update, modification, Maintenance records.
