SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM

ABSTRACT

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) is a computer system for gathering and

analyzing real time data. SCADA is an integral part in power monitoring. Through it power

generation, transmission and distribution can be monitored and controlled either remotely or at

the generation, transmission and or distribution station.

Currently, the Kenya electrical power system network is of the concentrated generation

configuration and SCADA is widely used in this network. The use of SCADA in the system is an

integral part in the day to day operation of the same. However there are several shortcomings to

the existing system the improvements of which are mentioned in this project report.

In this project, implementation of SCADA to realize a Smart Grid for the Kenya electrical power

system is simulated. SCADA for the transmission stage of the grid is considered. It is also

shown how the incorporation of modern control methods improves on the shortcomings of the

existing grid thereby making its operation smart.
