The acquisition of data, the processing of those data for use by the operator, and operator control of remote devices are the fundamental building blocks upon which all modern utility control systems are based. The systems to accomplish these functions are known as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. This paper provides an overview of the functions of SCADA and the fundamentals of operation of SCADA systems, including a brief description of the key man-machine interface… CONTINUE READING
