Distributed System SCADA using Multiple Industrial Communication Protocols on Allen Bradley Equipment


Background/Objectives: This research is aimed at designing and implementing a SCADA system with multiple industrial communication protocols, tuning of composite PID controls in multivariable processes and configuration of industrial networks in high-end Allen Bradley equipment. Methods: The SCADA behavior was identified according to the variation of parameters within the system, and the responses obtained through a datalogg, as well as the validation of the operation of the PID control according to the trend of the curves generated based on the controlled processes through the display of the View Panel in case of operators or an application for monitoring and control carried out in Factory Talk Site Edition, in addition, the reliability of the industrial networks was verified through the diagnosis of each protocol. Findings: Findings: With the SCADA system, and the use of multiple communication protocols, the sending and reception of data generated in the field devices was managed, and the trends and behavior of the physical variables of the process were obtained in real time, as well as a database for the analysis, diagnosis and validation of the functionality of the distributed processes, both at the liquid level and at the speed control level; in addition, the stability of the Industrial Ethernet (EI), ControlNet and DeviceNet industrial communication networks was verified in the face of disturbances and changes in the state of the industrial processes. Applications/Improvements: Database generation, variable status identification, historical data and alarms; to improve the effectiveness of your systems, reduce the costs of predictive and preventive maintenance, operation and production of different industrial processes.
