MODULE 1: Introduction to SCADA
This module introduces the basic concepts of SCADA and SCADA architecture. Topics include process commands, data gathering requirements, control and monitoring technologies, and some widely used applications for SCADA.
MODULE 2: SCADA Communications
This module covers SCADA Communications including communication concepts and media, communication system standards and protocols, and network infrastructure.
MODULE 3: Remote Terminal Units (RTU)
This module builds on the foundations of concepts and communications and expands into the primary elements of SCADA systems. Characteristics of RTUs, communication modes, and RTU configuration are discussed.
MODULE 4: Field Devices
In this module you will learn about some of the Field Devices that RTUs communicate with in SCADA systems including Sensors and Actuators as well as other considerations.
MODULE 5: Master Terminal Unit
In this module you will learn about the Master Terminal Unit (MTU) and review concepts, communication, functions, scan periods, configuration and applications. By the conclusion of this module, you should have a solid understanding of MTU application including functions, hardware, configuration, and RTU and data scanning periods.
MODULE 6: Topics of SCADA Project execution
In this module you will learn about major topics for executing a SCADA project including conceptual design, system design, functional description, test plans, detail design, software development. A review of a few samples of phased project life cycles is also included.
MODULE 7: Sample SCADA Projects
The last module is designed to provide you with experience in making decisions about SCADA system integrations using sample projects. You will apply what you have learned in some scenarios, label some diagrams, and take the course completion quiz.
