2 SCADA Road Map: What is a Control System? What is SCADA ? Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionRoad Map:What is a Control System?What is SCADA ?Where and why SCADA is used?SCADA architectureComponents of SCADASecurity issuesModern features
3 SCADA First of all, Lets see what is a Control System ? Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionFirst of all, Lets see what is a Control System ?A control system, is a system that holds responsible in top of another system (being controlled system) for setting and stabling the system in a predefined state.Nowadays control systems are mostly microprocessor based. (Microcontrollers, PLCs, PC-Based Control systems).SensorProcess being controlledActuatorController System
4 SCADASupervisory Control And Data AcquisitionExample of a monitoring and control system is a system which monitors temperature and switches heaters on and off.
5 SCADASupervisory Control And Data AcquisitionWhat is SCADA?SCADA is “Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition”.Real-time industrial process control systems used to centrallymonitor and control remote or local industrial equipment such asmotors, valves, pumps, relays, sensors, etc.SCADA is Combination of telemetry and Data Acquisition.SCADA is not just a hardware, neither a software. It’s a concept,it’s a system as a combination of special hardware, software andprotocols.SCADA is used to control chemical plant processes, oil and gaspipelines, electrical generation and transmission equipment,manufacturing facilities, water purification anddistribution infrastructure, etc.
6 SCADA Why SCADA is needed ? Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionWhy SCADA is needed ?The Ability to Remotely collect different plants on different places.The Ability to control process from a distance.The Ability to create logs and reports about system’s current and past state.The Ability to send necessary information to Engineers and operators inreal-time using Instant Messaging and SMS.
7 SCADA Where SCADA is used ? Electrical generation/distribution, Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionWhere SCADA is used ?Electrical generation/distribution,Natural gas distributionFuel Oil storage & flowWater storage & flowLightingHeating, cooling, ventilationFire alarms & suppressionElevators & escalatorsGates & doors, alarmsVideo security camerasTraffic signalsProcess Line Control
8 SCADA SCADA is not a new stuff ! Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionSCADA is not a new stuff !It has been used since the early days of control systems toremotely Control and Monitor current and past state of beingcontrolled system (our plant, factory, etc.)

17 SCADA Protocols used in SCADA Systems: Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionProtocols used in SCADA Systems:Mostly Open Protocol are used in SCADA systems.The most popular protocols are as follows:DNP (Distributed Network Protocol)ModbusDeviceNet
18 SCADA SCADA Functionality: - Data acquisition and display Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionSCADA Functionality:- Data acquisition and displaystore binary & analog data into process data base- Alarm & Eventsrecord important changes and operator actions- History data basekeep a record of the process values- Measured processingcalculate derived values (limit supervision, trending)- Logging & reporting- Human Machine Interface (HMI):graphical object state presentation, lists, reports- Operator Command handlingbinary commands, set pointsrecipes, batches, scripts (command procedures)

20 SCADA What is an alarm, an event ? Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionWhat is an alarm, an event ?A&E consider changes occurring in the plant (process) or in the control system(operator actions, configuration changes,…) that merit to be recorded.Recorded changes can be of three kinds:- informative: no action required (e.g. "production terminated at 11:09")- warning: plant could stop or be damaged if no corrective action is taken "soon" (e.g. “fuel low")- blocking: the controller took action to protect the plant and further operation is prevented until the reason is cleared (e.g. “Temperature too high")An event is a change related to: operator actions ("grid synchronisation performed at 14:35"),configuration changes ("new software loaded in controller 21"), and system errors ("no life sign from controller B3")
21 SCADA Implementing alarms by variables Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionImplementing alarms by variablesAn alarm is often encoded as a simple 16-bit word sent by an object (thru PLC) in the plant.Each bit has a different meaning, the error condition is reset when the word is 0. low oil pressure121] low water level trajectory error synchronisation error tool error robot %R1% not ready…word
22 SCADA New Trends in SCADA Web-Based SCADA systems Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionNew Trends in SCADAWeb-Based SCADA systemsConnecting SCADA system to InternetGives more functionality to our systemSecurity issues should be coveredUsing Instant Messaging to report systems status (implemented)Giving more functionalityUsing a reliable instant messaging serviceUsing Short Message Service to report critical situations (implemented)A kind of instant messaging, using Mobile Telecommunication networkUsing SMS Server, connecting a cell to PC, setting up a web server andusing WAP
23 SCADA Instant Messaging for SCADA Supervisory Control And Data AcquisitionInstant Messaging for SCADAFacilitate the remote monitor and control by utilizing the secure IMInstant Messaging (IM) is a type of communications service over the Internet that enables individuals to exchange text messages and track availability of a list of users in real-time.By taking advantage of the near real time feature of IM and richness of the IM presence, we bring forward a secure IM based remote monitor and control system.LDAP-based device and system managementLightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)  specifically targeted at management applications and browser applications that provide read/write interactive access to directories.
