Why Use Gateway RTU in Remote SCADA View


The very important function of a Gateway RTU in our remote SCADA viewing is to compress a lot of diversified field signals into a single communication means- long distance cable channel or radio.

It provides a more real time controller for remote units/equipments which involve time/mission critical data transmission tasks. SCADA is normally classified as non-real time control system and is just a supervisory system.

Also, the TeleSCADA are normally indeterministic and involve comparably long latency time delays and communication channel instability.

Having an RTU host a complete stand alone program will keep remote monitoring functioning safely, adequately, and reliably even if it lost links.

In a distrbuted system, nodes are created throghout the network so as to cater the fault in communication links. For such a system, the RTU is responsible to collect data from field devices or itself and store it till it is allowed to transfer the same towards the master station.

To further clarify the above, field information like status and values or command data request needs the RTU to be there to translate what is received through a SCADA protocol (DNP3,IEC101/104 ….) and converts it to physical reality information. RTU therefore is mainly a “translator” of protocol language into Field language and vice versa. This is especially important to make long distance data highway fast and reliable.

PLC info Series 001 – Introduction to PLC


Introduction to PLCs

What does ‘PLC’ mean?

A PLC (Programmable Logic Controllers) is an industrial computer used to monitor inputs, and depending upon their state make decisions based on its program or logic, to control (turn on/off) its outputs to automate a machine or a process.

NEMA defines a PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER as:

“A digitally operating electronic apparatus which uses a programmable memory for the internal storage of instructions by implementing specific functions such as logic sequencing, timing, counting, and arithmetic to control, through digital or analog input/output modules, various types of machines or processes”.

Traditional PLC Applications

*In automated system, PLC controller is usually the central part of a process control system.

*To run more complex processes it is possible to connect more PLC controllers to a central computer.

Disadvantages of PLC control

– Too much work required in connecting wires.

– Difficulty with changes or replacements.

– Difficulty in finding errors; requiring skillful work force.

– When a problem occurs, hold-up time is indefinite, usually long.

Advantages of PLC control

* Rugged and designed to withstand vibrations, temperature, humidity, and noise.

* Have interfacing for inputs and outputs already inside the controller.

* Easily programmed and have an easily understood programming language.

Major Types of Industrial Control Systems

Industrial control system or ICS comprise of different types of control systems that are currently in operation in various industries. These control systems include PLC, SCADA and DCS and various others:

PLC

They are based on the Boolean logic operations whereas some models use timers and some have continuous control. These devices are computer based and are used to control various process and equipments within a facility. PLCs control the components in the DCS and SCADA systems but they are primary components in smaller control configurations.

DCS

Distributed Control Systems consists of decentralized elements and all the processes are controlled by these elements. Human interaction is minimized so the labor costs and injuries can be reduced.

Embedded Control

In this control system, small components are attached to the industrial computer system with the help of a network and control is exercised.

SCADA

Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition refers to a centralized system and this system is composed of various subsystems like Remote Telemetry Units, Human Machine Interface, Programmable Logic Controller or PLC and Communications.

Learn About Biogas Recovery Series. Info 001 – What is Biogas?


Haase maize anaerobic digester 

Credit: CC-BY-3.0 by FVortexrealm

Biogas is created when animal waste, or manure, decomposes. Capturing biogas from cattle, hog and poultry farms can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and recovering the methane from the biogas can provide a cost-effective source of renewable energy. Recovered biogas can be an energy source for electricity, heating or transportation fuel.

Biogas recovery is a proven technology that is widely used in sectors like food processing and wastewater treatment. In agriculture, biogas recovery systems are already used at hundreds of farms, and could be used at thousands more cattle, hog and poultry farms. For example, AgSTAR estimates that biogas recovery systems are technically feasible at over 8,000 large dairy and hog farms alone!

A natural process called anaerobic digestion creates biogas. Anaerobic digesters are closed systems that harness this natural process to produce biogas and other useful coproducts. These systems also reduce odors, pathogens and waste.

Largest Solar farm in PH will start it’s construction!


Pinoy Tribune

Solar Philippines has kicked off the construction of its 150-megawatt (MW) solar farm with battery storage here, its largest solar power project to-date, which can provide the province’s requirements in six months time, its top official said yesterday.

The whole solar farm will start operating as a merchant plant in the third quarter of the year, Solar Philippines president Leandro Leviste said during the ceremonial groundbreaking of the project.

“The output of the 150 MW plant that will be operating here by the second half of 2017 will be able to power the entire Tarlac province with cheap renewable energy,” he said.

The company official said this will heed Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi’s call to put up more merchant power plants – or those generating facilities selling their output to the wholesale electricity spot market (WESM) – to further spur competition in the electricity spot market.

“What we want is to make this fast…(because) solar is now cheaper than coal and therefore get this online within 2017. And that’s why even without the contract finally approved by regulators, we’re doing this for most of the plant’s capacity,” Leviste said.

The Concepcion solar farm will comprise close to 450,000 solar panels and over 150 hectares, with room to expand as demand for solar with batteries increases.

Leviste said the cost to put up the solar farm is equivalent to $1 million per megawatt, or roughly $150 million for the entire project.

“With the battery… it can be an additional 20-50 percent of the cost of the project. But we’re not doing all the batteries all at once, it’s going to be phased incrementally,” he said.

Solar Philippines is the developer, investor, contractor and supplier for its projects – a strategy which the company believes is the key to making solar cost-competitive.

“Why do we expect lower price? One is vertical integration, by doing solar panel manufacturing in-house as well as the construction. the development, the financing will definitely lower the cost. Second is the economies of scale,” Leviste said.

Once completed, the power plant will have many firsts in its name.

New study reveals how much pee there is on swimming pools


ByAdmin, Daily Star PH

With the scorching summer heat soon to engulf the metro, people are starting to flock to their favorite beaches and swimming pools to cool down.

Although it has become quite a running gag for the longest time, researchers have finally confirmed that most people are actually peeing in pools.

A group of researchers from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada performed a series of tests to measure the amount of urine from 250 samples, coming from 31 pools and hot tubs.

“Our study provides additional evidence that people are indeed urinating in public pools and hot tubs,” one of the researchers, Lindsay Blackstock, confirmed.

The shocking results, as per The Guardian, showed that one 830,000-liter (220,000-gallon) pool—which is about one-third of an Olympic-sized pool—contained 75 liters of urine. Tests done on smaller pools had 30 liters.

By measuring the concentration of an artificial sweetener, acesulfame potassium (ACE), the group was able to determine the presence of urine in the water.

The test was made possible since the processed food usually passes through the body unaltered.

Over the course of three weeks, Blackstock and her crew calculated that swimmers had released 75 liters of urine—which was enough to fill a medium-sized trash can.

Despite their shocking revelation, the group admitted that they were unable to check if the swimmers belonged to different groups or if they were repeat offenders.

“We did not monitor the number of pool users over the three week time period … so there is no way we could estimate the number of individual urination events per day,” Blackstock admitted.

Apart from their home city of Canada, the group is also looking to expand their study to other areas.

“We want to use this study to promote public education on appropriate swimming hygiene practices,” said Blackstock. “We should all be considerate of others and make sure to exit the pool to use the restroom when nature calls.”

The group’s full analysis and findings, meanwhile, was published in the American Chemical Society journal, Environmental Science and Technology Letters. Khristian Ibarrola/JB

RTU use expands, must make full use of advantages


Use of remote terminal units began in the U.S. oil and gas industry in 1980s and has expanded to electricity, environmental protection, heating networks, water conservancy, and long-distance pipelines. It expanded into transportation, metallurgy, petro chemistry, logistics, and agriculture. Control Engineering China asks a Chinese expert about RTU trends.

Control Engineering China (CEC) noted an expansion of remote terminal unit (RTU) use and asked an expert, Dr. Fang Yuanbai, professorate senior engineer of Kunming Engineering & Research Institute of Non-ferrous Metallurgy, about related trends. 

CEC: RTU applications have expanded significantly the past two years from oil and gas fields to other areas. Well-known automation companies accelerated development, and mergers and acquisitions happened. RTU technologies also advanced. Why is RTU popular? 

Fang Yuanbai: RTU started to be used by the U.S. oil and gas industry in the 1980s and gradually expanded to electricity, environmental protection, heating networks, water conservancy, and long-distance pipelines. Recently it has further expanded to transportation, metallurgy, petro chemistry, logistics, and agriculture. It continues to gain popularity. We can say that in a specific application, such as data collection in the oil and gas field area, RTU is the main trend. However, in the whole oil and gas industry, RTU is not a main trend in automation equipment systems, where, in my opinion, programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and distributed control systems (DCSs) are more popular. Output, sales volume, and actual application of PLC and DCS manufacturers far exceeds that of RTU manufacturers.

RTU is gaining popularity for the following reasons:

The enterprise increasingly needs information. In the past, some measurements were given up because they are scattered and the cost to collect data is too high. Now data collection is needed.

As enterprises increase in size and mergers occur, groups can span across cities or even some provinces. Central management requires remote data collection.

As RTU costs decrease, enterprises that gave up remote data collection because of high investment costs are now starting to implement RTU systems.

RTU technologies have advanced. Communications, Internet, database, and signal transmission technologies also promote wider RTU use and market expansion. Industrial wireless transmission technologies provide new RTU signal transmission methods.

Some newly emerging industries, such as solar power plants, wind power plants, and smart buildings, are new applications for RTUs. Previously, we heard of digital oil fields, digital petro chemistry, and digital pipelines. Recently I heard about digital mines in the metal mineral industry, and I also heard propaganda about a “digital city,” although we are still far from it, actually. 

CEC: The definition of enterprise RTU is a little different. How do you define RTU? 

Fang Yuanbai: In my opinion RTU can be defined narrowly and broadly. RTU in a narrow sense is defined as the basic components of a SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system. RTU in a broad sense is defined as the remote input/output (I/O) connections used by control systems, including PLC, DSC, field control systems (FCS), and SCADA.

The earliest SCADA had only data collection capability, and RTU had only two basic functions: data collection and processing, and data transmission. However, with the functions of the system expanded, RTU added PID control, logic control, and mathematical computation (such as gas temperature and pressure compensation). So RTU for SCADA and remote I/O of PLC, DCS, and FCS have some common and different attributes. RTU for SCADA can be connected to a control system comprising PLC, DCS, and FCS. For example, we connected a remote supervisory and control terminal (an RTU product from Schlumberger) to a DCS system in 1990s. Remote I/O and even PLCs, DCSs, and FCSs can be connected to SCADA systems. Beijing Echo Technology Co., which focuses on development of industrial RTU products, rolled out the Echo 5100 distributed control system with field control layers composed of RTUs or PLCs based on a standard DCS structure. 

CEC: What’s your view on RTU technology advances? 

Fang Yuanbai: SCADA systems aren’t applied as often as PLC, DCS, and FCS are. To boost the application of RTU and SCADA, we must make full use of RTU advantages. For example, RTUs are mainly installed in the field, especially in rural areas. Usually PLC and DCS remote I/O are not used in these areas. To gain market share, RTUs need to withstand high temperatures and humidity, have dielectric strength, and resist interference, so RTUs are superior to PLC and DCS remote I/O.

Wireless was applied to many RTU and SCADA applications earlier than PLC, DCS, and FCS applications, and the scope of SCADA applications is much wider. However, the industrial wireless standards were proposed and set by manufacturers of PLCs, DCSs, and FCSs. This may be because of the lack of influence or lack of vision of RTU manufacturers.

Market volume of automation (including control systems) ranks high globally. However, the big players in this market are still overseas automation companies, such as U.S.-based Emerson Process Management, German-based Siemens, U.S.-based Honeywell, Japan-based Yokogawa, and U.S.-based Foxboro [now part of U.K.-based Invensys]. China Beijing Hollysys and Hangzhou Supcon are growing and can compete with big players overseas, in some areas. However, when it comes to RTUs, few companies (such as Beijing Echo Technology Co.) can compete with overseas players. I hope more China enterprises focus on the development and market promotion of RTU, build high-end national brands, and make a greater contribution to the development of the RTU industry in China. 

Key concepts

RTU and SCADA are:

– Growing rapidly in many markets as costs decrease and capabilities increase
– Advancing and important in China and abroad
– Dominated by non-Chinese companies, though several China-based companies are gaining 
– This appeared in Control Engineering China and was translated for the Control Engineering North American print and digital edition. Edited by Mark T. Hoske, content manager CFE Media, Control Engineering, Plant Engineering, and Consulting-Specifying Engineer

3 Steps to Build a Strong Team


By Daniel Burrus

Tech Futurist & Innovation Expert

An old cliché has it that there is no “I” in team. Like many well-worn phrases, that one holds a certain amount of truth—and not just in the literal spelling. In effect, a strong team emphasizes the group, not just one individual. The thinking is, when the team advances as a whole, so, too, does everyone within it.        

That begs a question: How do you build a team that is characterized by strong, coordinated teamwork?

It’s not as difficult as you might assume—particularly if you adopt an anticipatory mindset.

Break Down the Challenges

The obstacles that organizations face in fostering teamwork can be highly specific, depending on the particulars of the industry, the culture of the organization and the individuals involved. However, Harvard Business Review’s Answer Exchange offers a useful list of eight challenges that teams often encounter:

Absence of team identity
Difficulty making decisions
Poor communication
Inability to resolve conflicts
Lack of participation
Lack of creativity 
Groupthink (unwilling or unable to consider alternative ideas or approaches)

Ineffective leadership

Taken on its own, that can be a daunting set of obstacles. But certain core principles of my Anticipatory Organization Model™ can effectively address all of these issues and create a well-coordinated, focused team:

Step One: Communicate, Don’t Just Inform

One of the biggest stumbling blocks in helping to create a solid team is effective communication. Take a quick glance back at the list above—every one of those issues can be traced in some manner to poor communication.

The reason is simple—instead of genuinely communicating, we can all fall into the trap of merely informing.

Let’s break that down a bit. Informing is one-way and static. It merely passes along information without any related form of action. When you inform someone, you’re not even sure if they agree with you or not.

Communication, on the other hand, flows in both directions and is dynamic. The dialogue is genuine, and an enhanced level of engagement results. In effect, you wish to hear as much as you wish to speak.

As a leader, it’s simple to promote that sort of environment. Whether you’re chatting one-on-one or participating in a large group meeting, set the tone by being as active a listener as you are a speaker. You’ll get better results and, at the same time, offer an ideal example to those around you.

Step Two: Collaborate, Don’t Just Cooperate

The terms collaborate and cooperate might seem rather similar but their differences are both distinct and meaningful. It’s amazing how many companies and organizations say they are collaborating when, in reality, they are only cooperating. That’s because they don’t know the difference, and in this case, the difference can make all the difference.

People cooperate because they have to. And because they have to, the focus is on protecting and defending their piece of the economic pie. It’s a strategy based on scarcity.

On the other hand, people collaborate because they want to. You choose to collaborate because you understand that by working together you can create a bigger pie for all. It’s inclusive and expansive.

Need examples? In technology, Apple, Microsoft, Google and others can attribute much of their early success to strategic partnerships with competitors. Likewise, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly collaborating to share resources and information to develop and distribute life-saving medications.

In many ways, collaboration and communication are closely intertwined. It makes sense—if you’re communicating effectively with someone else, you’re more likely to build the level of trust with which collaboration flourishes. By fostering effective communication, you’re also building a collaborative environment—and, in the process, a stronger team.

Step Three: Use the Tools

One fortunate factor that can help build communication, collaboration and a better team is that we have so many tools with which to approach the challenge. Consider our smartphones, Skype, FaceTime, Twitter and any number of other devices and platforms. They’re tied to the moniker “social” for a very good reason—encourage their use, dialogue and engagement.

There are a great many effective strategies with which to build a strong team—one that’s characterized by communication and collaboration. Build those two competencies, and all those smaller, more defined challenges will likely melt away.
