SCADA for Substations

How new technologies can improve monitoring and control

BY LOURENCO TEODORO, InduSoft

Substations are a critical component for maintaining electrical supply and load control in low voltage, medium voltage and high voltage electrical distribution networks. In order to ensure the proper functioning of substations and related equipment such as line-mounted switches and capacitors, most utilities use SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems to automate monitoring and control.

New sites typically implement a SCADA...
