WORKING PHASES OF SCADA SYSTEM FOR POWER DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS
The aim of this paper is, firstly, to recall the basic concepts of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, to present the project management phases of SCADA for real time implementation, and then to show the need of the automation for Power Distribution Companies (PDC) on their distribution networks and the importance of using computer based system towards sustainable development of their services. Most control actions are performed automatically by RTUs. Host control functions are usually restricted to basic overriding or supervisory level intervention A proposed computer based power distribution automation system is then discussed. Finally, some projects SCADA system implementation in electrical companies over the world is briefly presented.
