CERTIFICATE IN SUBSTATION AUTOMATION USING SCADA
Two aspects make the automation of the power delivery system worth the investment. First, they are geographically extensive. In some cases, the point of interest is 100 or more miles away from the utility operations center. Second, and even more important, is the complexity. Even when remote control of these devices and systems is achieved, system operators require time to evaluate, digest, and act upon a given situation. Automation scripts can be created to take action for routine events that disrupt the power delivery process and reduce outage duration.
