Description

SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant or gathering of data from devices in the field, but now the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business and using it in real time. The emphasis today is on using open standards such as communication protocols (e.g. OPC, MODBUS, and TCP/IP) and ‘off-the-shelf’ hardware, such as industrial Ethernet to keep the costs down. This course covers the essentials of SCADA systems.

The first topics give an introduction to SCADA systems and then focus on the SCADA system hardware and software, including alarm management and Human Management Interface (HMI) issues. This is followed by a review of the RS-232/RS-485 interface standards and the MODBUS and DNP3 protocols.
The remainder of the topics give a review of industrial Ethernet, TCP/IP and MODBUS/TCP. The role of Open Process Control (OPC) in plant SCADA systems is also discussed along with network security, SCADA historians and troubleshooting issues.

The course is aimed at those who want to be updated on the latest developments in SCADA systems and want to get a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of SCADA design, installation and troubleshooting. These would form the key focus areas of this course.

 

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • The fundamentals of SCADA systems
  • The essentials of SCADA software configuration
  • Tricks and tips in installation of SCADA systems
  • The essentials of telecommunications links
  • The use of industrial Ethernet in SCADA systems
  • SCADA network security issues
  • How to troubleshoot SCADA systems
