SCADA System for Supervision of Diesel Consumption and Energy Efficiency for Electric Generators


Objectives: This paper describes the process of designing a SCADA platform developed on a graphic programming environment using the Labview software tool. Methods/Analysis: Its purpose is aimed at monitoring the fuel consumption of diesel power plants and their electrical generation, making it possible through the interface and graphic indicators, to show the levels of level in the fuel tanks, the consumption of diesel in real time and electrical generation among others, in order to determine if a generator is behaving efficiently according to the indices determined by the manufacturer. Findings: If the operating criteria are not maintained, it would mean that fuel waste is being produced with the economic and environmental implications that it also implies that electromechanical corrections must be made in order for there to be efficient electrical generation. Improvements: You can use a web portal where you can monitor the system, adding a notification mode.

Keywords: Electric generator, diesel, Labview, SCADA, instrumentation for level, electric power
