DMS SCADA objective


Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition ( SCADA) in distribution  enables the collection of various data from the field / remote locations , analyze it at a central portal and uses the information for various monitoring and control of  the network.    Distribution Management System (DMS) is a collection of applications designed to monitor & control the 11kV distribution network efficiently. Improving the reliability and quality of service in terms of reducing outages, minimizing outage time, maintaining acceptable frequency and voltage levels are the key deliverables of the SCADA DMS  system.

As per Ministry of Power and KSEBL  commitment for providing 24x7 uninterrupted, quality, reliable and affordable power supply, KSEBL  have launched SCADA under R-APDRP and is proposed under RDSS. The  objective of the scheme is  to reduce  Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses.  This is  achieved by plugging pilferage points & reliability by improvement in supply of quality power, faster identification of faults & early restoration of power, proper metering, strategic placement of capacitor banks & switches, proper planning and design of distribution network. The SCADA/DMS System will provide Real time monitoring & control, loss minimization/load balancing and considerable improvement in voltage/VAR profiles. It would also facilitate proper handling of loads while load shedding & restoration, efficient planning of network for future growth by using proven power system planning tools. A full fledged SCADA/DMS shall be capable to meet this requirement.

Ministry of Power, Govt. of India, had  launched the Restructured Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (R-APDRP) in the XI Five year Plan with the  objective of reducing Aggregate Technical and Commercial (AT&C) losses in the project area. KSEBL has already implemented SCADA in three towns viz  Trivandrum, Ernakulam and Kozhikode under the R- APDRP Project. SCADA DMS control rooms are made operational in the respective three towns.

Revamped Reforms Based and Results Linked Distribution Sector Scheme (RDSS) has been formulated by Ministry of Power for supporting DISCOMs to undertake reforms and improve performance in a time bound manner. Under RDSS scheme , work of implementing  SCADA DMS project in Kollam , Thrissur and Kannur Towns has commenced . Basic SCADA with overhead monitoring devices are also proposed in 53 statutory towns. Six control centers along with DRR(Disaster Replica Recovery Centre) and DR (Data Recovery Centre)  are to be set up as a part of RDSS  project implementation.
