DESIGN AND INTEGRATION OF SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION (SCADA) SYSTEM MILWAUKEE METROPOLITAN SEWERAGE DISTRICT
Abstract:This paper describes the design and integration of the new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) collection system. The selected System Integrator was required to complete the design, procure and install equipment, and start up the new system. The new SCADA system provides wireless communication using ultra high frequency (UHF) radio signals between 285 remote facilities and MMSD's central control station. The remote facilities include flow measuring stations, flow control structures, weather stations, pumping stations and the District's inline storage system (deep tunnel). The design criteria require 99.9 up time of the new SCADA system along with the ability to poll all remote sites within one minute. The system must also be expandable to provide control and monitoring for up to 700 remote sites. The new SCADA became partially functional in 2003 and is expected to be completed in 2004.
