I am a student of Electronics and Instrumentation Branch from BP. I am doing my training at ….. where i have been assigned a project to implement SCADA System using Microcontroller.
Right now,i have a good knowledge of PSOC and AVR microcontrollers but since i am new to this technology,i am not getting how i should proceed for the project.i would be greatful to you if you can provide some information about the previous projects students have done in you organization regarding scada implementation.
A “SCADA System” may consist of a Human using a Computer with Special Software Overseeing a Process Control System made of many sensors, transmitters, autonomous controllers and actuators made of motor drives and heaters.
SCADA System has a Computer, sometimes Network, HMI, PLC Control Panel, Secondary Slave Instruments. Autonomous Process Control in Remote areas and Protection and Fallback Units.
SCADA – Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
Some of these elements may send data to the computer which may Analyze and Indicate the condition of process or progress. The Human Operator can then fine tune the parameters of his system or study and record process cycles for quality and yield.
You discuss this with your mentor and then build a part of it, or implement a part of it in an existing system. A whole SCADA system is too big a project, but a simulated or demo software interface project can be made.
This will be posted comment on that post to continue. Any other doubt post as a comment, .
