Remote Terminal Unit for Wireless SCADA Systems

When it comes to the management of energy systems, optimal design plays a key role. The project that’s going to be described in this post relies on the usage of Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems along with remote terminal unit. The design has a large scale development of remote terminal unity which is an important part of the SCADA system. The focus of the design can be varied using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The benefit of using FPGA based remote terminal units is that the designer gets better encryption, radio and memory support. The innovation achieved in this model is similar to the that of the Rogowski coil and other similar models. The SCADA system requires field data interface devices which are referred to as the remote terminal unit or RTU. The RTU is able to transfer the data from the interface devices to control units. The interface is known as Tele control interface (TCI). The master terminal unit or MTU is a server collection that allows simulations to run. The… Continue reading
