Autonomous SCADA System

Arvinder Singh Layal


Based on the modern requirements of the industry the Wireless SCADA system has a great application in many fields of industries. SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System) is a particular protocol in which the data is acquired as well the data can be controlled using the GUI designed on PC. SCADA will offer increased flexibility and expandability for future technology insertions.Wirelesscommunication becomes an attractive option as communication network in some cases, such as small amount of data communication for extremely remote substation, remote debugging temporarily for newly-built generation plants and backup communication. The paper describes the boiler application in which the sensors interfaced are PIR, temperature, level and gas sensor. Sensors are interfaced with the help of Arduino Mega and the data that is being sent to the RTU (remote terminal unit) via Zig-Bee Trans-receiver. The data received at RTU is plotted on real time basis. The process can also be controlled from the RTU.
