Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System
Integrated throughout the Energy Systems Integration Facility, a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system monitors and controls safety systems and gathers real-time, time-synchronized, high-resolution data for collaboration and visualization.
The Energy Systems Integration Facility's SCADA system supports a large visualization screen that allows researchers and partners to watch experiments in real time.
Extensive measures ensure reliable data capture and protection. Secure, segregated accounts allow users to access data collected from their experiments while ensuring the integrity of proprietary and sensitive information. Experimental data (voltage and current) can be taken at points on each portion of the research electrical distribution bus at 128 samples/cycle to ensure valid waveform measurements.
