SCADA is not a specific technology, but a type of application. SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition — any application that gets data about a system in order to control that system is a SCADA application.
A SCADA has two elements: The process/system/machinery to be monitored. This can be a power plant, a water system, oil and gas plant, and others. The other SCADA element is a Network of an intelligent device that interfaces the first element through sensors and control output. This network, which is SCADA system, gives the ability to measure/monitor and control any specific or overall components on the first element of SCADA.
This course provides overall SCADA knowledge. All major aspects of SCADA are covered by classroom presentations and laboratory exercises.
The objective of this course is to equip operators/engineers/supervisors/managers with skills which will enable them to implement SCADA system which will have a definite economic and engineering benefit for process operations. This practical course explains SCADA concepts, SCADA system communications, and visualization.
Students completing these courses receive a good grounding in SCADA principles and strategies, Sketch out a SCADA system for potential application in your industry, SCADA HMI development, and various SCADA components.
