Dear Mr. Ramesh,
I recently got an offer from an EMS vendor and I would like to thank
Compusharp Inc for providing online training in the area of SCADA/ EMS
Systems.The topics I learnt since the past three months were really
helpfully during my job search and the interviews.
I would like to share my experiences and the topics I learnt which
were useful in starting my career in the field of Power Systems.
The training provided a solid understanding of a SCADA/EMS system, its
components, functions and the Dispatcher Training Simulator (DTS).
All the functions of the Generation Dispatch and Control Subsystem
(Automatic Generation Control (AGC), Generation Dispatch (GD), Reserve
Monitoring (RMON), Unit Testing and Sampling (UTES/USAM), Energy
Scheduling and Accounting (Interchange Scheduling (I/S), Production
Costs (PC), AGC Performance Monitoring (APM), Load Forecasting (LF),
Unit Commitment/ Transaction Evaluation (UC/TE)) were clearly
explained in the material.
IEEE C37.118 standard which explains the definition of synchrophasor,
time synchronization, timetags and the message formats for
communication with a Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) were explored. The
Common Information Model (CIM) which is necessary at control centers
to look at the Power System models from different utilities (each
utility may have a different modeling environment) was also covered.
FORTRAN and its application in Power System development was
emphasized. Linux environment, vi editor were also introduced.
This training program provided me a chance to learn the recent
advances in Power Systems (Smart grid in specific). In one line I can
summarize my experience as “A great program for a student to get
real time exposure to SCADA/EMS systems and Smart Grid”
I will stay in touch with you Sir.
Have a good day!
