Evaluate this session

This course provides a comprehensive examination of electric utility supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, as well as the many adjacent technologies, techniques and industry best practices that accompany them. Key topics to be covered include: SCADA system benefits, building blocks and case studies; introduction to and comparison of communication technologies, protocols and system uses; distribution automation and management systems; advanced applications and integration with other systems such as OMS and AMI; different types of SCADA architectures; and, cyber security best practices. A student new to SCADA will leave with a thorough understanding of why these systems are so important to reliable grid operation and what steps are required for effective deployment. A veteran SCADA user will be able to fill in knowledge gaps and gain new ideas for improvements and upgrades. The presenters have more than 60 years combined experience in this area. The instruction, therefore, will include many “real world” equipment and project examples to go along with the technology narrative.

Who should attend this course?

  • Engineers and managers responsible for planning and cost-justifying SCADA, communications and smart grid
  • Engineers responsible for designing and implementing a SCADA, communications or smart grid project, or contributing to its design and implementation
  • Communications engineers working on a SCADA or smart grid project
  • Operators and technicians working with SCADA, communications or smart grid systems
  • Project managers
  • Engineers and sales personnel working for suppliers and integrators of hardware and software products used in SCADA, communications or smart grid and related fields

Cost for this course is $495.00
