SCADA is an acronym for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition. SCADA systems are used to monitor and control a plant or equipment in industries such as telecommunications, water and waste control, energy. A typical SCADA system comprises of I/O signal hardware, Controllers, software, network & communication. Supervisory control and data acquisition system is a system in which message or commands that are individual are sends to the external world. Provides a host control functions for the supervisor to control and define settings. The basic natural sources like Coal, gas, Diesel, atomic etc are single time useable due to which the quantity of these sources is decreases day by day. The emissions of these fuels are also responsible for air pollution. On the other hand if we use the water power and solar power to generate the electricity. We can reduce the pollution as well as the generation cost of the energy. The quantity of the water is varies in the rivers according to the season and the sunlight intensity is vary according to the day hours. So we have developed a system in which consumers are connected to different type of power plant via a grid. The grid load and plants are monitored and controlled by the SCADA system. This provides the uninterrupted power supply at minimum power generation cost.
