Project 3 – Dual Sim Router (TNB Scada)
Client: TNB Berhad
Project Duration: 2018-2021
The TNB SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system refers to the monitoring and control system used by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the main electricity utility company in Malaysia. SCADA systems are commonly employed in various industries, including energy and utilities, to monitor and control complex processes and equipment remotely.
The TNB SCADA system is designed to oversee and manage the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity across the TNB network. It enables real-time monitoring, data acquisition, and control of power generation plants, substations, transformers, and other critical infrastructure components.
Key Features of the TNB SCADA System:
- Data Acquisition: The system collects data from various devices and sensors located throughout the TNB network. This includes measurements such as voltage levels, current flow, temperature, and other operational parameters.
- Real-time Monitoring: The SCADA system provides real-time monitoring of the electrical grid, allowing operators to visualize and analyze the status of different network elements. It displays information on a centralized control room screen or operator workstations, enabling operators to make informed decisions promptly.
- Control and Automation: The system allows operators to remotely control and automate certain processes and equipment. For example, they can remotely open or close circuit breakers, regulate voltage levels, and coordinate power flows to maintain a stable and reliable electrical supply.
- Alarm and Event Management: The SCADA system triggers alarms and notifications in case of abnormal conditions, equipment failures, or other events that require attention. Operators can respond to these alerts promptly and initiate appropriate actions to prevent or mitigate disruptions.
- Historical Data Analysis: The system stores and archives historical data related to power system operations. This data can be utilized for performance analysis, troubleshooting, predictive maintenance, and planning future upgrades and expansions.
The TNB SCADA system plays a crucial role in ensuring the reliable and efficient operation of the electrical grid in Malaysia. It enhances situational awareness, enables timely response to faults and outages, and contributes to the overall stability and quality of the power supply.
