Abstract:

A presentation on a unique design/build and integration of an automation control system upgrade with a redundant Allen-Bradley PLC control and Rockwell Automation distributed SCADA monitoring system for a 12 MGD wastewater treatment plant including cellular wireless communications to 12 remote pumping stations. The upgrade was performed without interruption to the plant operations and provided alarming and voice annunciation with WIN911. The paper describes all major “state of the art” ControlLogix PLC, RSView SCADA and wireless architectures utilizing AirLink cellular radios and OPC communications to remote controllers such as MultiTrode. Data analysis and reporting was performed with PlantMetrics and RSSQL Historian. Also included is a discussion on procurement methods and budget monitoring. The project was performed on time and below budget.
