SCADA functionality includes polling of field devices utilizing various protocols, issuing of commands to field devices, and performing alarm processing and trending. SCADA data in ADMS can also be stored in the ADMS time-series historical service for later retrieval, analysis, and simulation purposes. SCADA 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 SCADA feeds using data from reclosers, voltage regulators, capacitor banks, meters, fault indicators, etc. This allows ADMS to incorporate SCADA data in prediction, analysis, and optimization functions. Alarms generated from SCADA data include limit violations, rate of change, uncommanded status change, and alarms related to system health.
