Robust real-time monitoring and control. In order to provide reliable, safe, and efficient power, utilities depend on accurate and robust systems for monitoring and control. ESCADA systems must provide high availability, redundancy, and disaster recovery functionality, and must be secure, flexible, scalable, and configurable.
Schneider Electric’s ESCADA - running as a part of OASyS DNA SCADA - includes functions for polling of field devices utilizing various protocols, issuing of commands to field devices, and performing alarm processing and trending. ESCADA data in ADMS can also be stored in the ADMS time-series historical service for later retrieval, analysis, and simulation purposes. ESCADA functionality includes synchronization of data between primary and backup environments for redundancy of critical infrastructure, as well as data exchange via ICCP and other protocols with other SCADA systems. Prediction services within ADMS take advantage of ESCADA feeds using data from reclosers, voltage regulators, capacitor banks, meters, fault indicators, etc. This allows ADMS to incorporate ESCADA data in prediction, analysis, and optimization functions. Alarms generated from ESCADA data include limit violations, rate of change, uncommanded status change, and alarms related to system health.
