SCADA Systems and Substation Automation
Altran designs SCADA functionality into electrical substations. SCADA is an acronym for, “Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition.” SCADA is used to affect physical change, such as the tripping of a breaker. Modern SCADA components are controlled via internet protocol (IP) signals, and are intricately related to information technology (IT) systems.
However, SCADA goes a step further than IT, by not just manipulating and storing data, but using it to physically control substations from remote locations. Altran has designed SCADA rack configurations, rack wiring diagrams, controller interconnections, and patch panels.
