Industrial control system architecture
Industrial control systems (ICS) provide real-time monitoring and control of critical infrastructure systems. The control system that can be implemented in electric power generation is the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), this is an industrial control computer based systems which can be used to monitor and control infrastructure based processes. Supervisory control and data acquisition systems are used to control assets dispersed in large geographical area (Boyer et al., 2010).
Electric power generation is a critical component for every economy and therefore electric utilities must meet the ever increasing demand for reliable power distribution and at the Continue reading...
