About the book :
The system is the heart of . A Distribution SCADA system’s primary function is in support of distribution operations telemetry, alarming, event recording, and remote control of field equipment.The real-time data collected by the SCADA system is provided to the planning engineers for inclusion in the radial distribution line studies. As the distribution system continues to grow, the utility makes annual investments to improve the electric distribution system to maintain adequate facilities to meet the increasing load requirements.The use of the permits the planning engineers to optimize the annual capital expenditures required to meet the growing needs of the electric distribution system.The challenging issues for SCADA systems and projects today are not the same as they were a few years ago. Today, there is much more importance placed on integration, use of new communication and network technologies, access to information by more users, and other purposes. The book deals with challenging issues in SCADA implementation and substation automation. The book also presents in details the cost benefit analysis of SCADA. A separate discussion on improvement of distribution system reliability is also addressed in the book.
