Sophisticated computers and communication equipments are installed at SLDC, which have been interconnected through associated communication network comprising of Fibre Optic Communication Link, and PLCC links. The network also acts as a bridge connecting WRLDC with rest of the Western Region constituent States as their data flows to WRLDC through SLDC,Bhilai communication network.
The Transmission network is a part of entire Western Region, which include constituent states, central sector, and Power Grid. This vast communication network allows on-line availability of field data of entire western region at our SLDC , which helps system engineers to know the real time status of entire western grid for taking prudent decisions in the event of most complex power system scenario.
One Video Projection System (VPS) having 134" large screen, besides high speed data servers, workstations, is installed at SLDC which depicts various network scenarios displayed in text as well as graphic form which provide instant overview of the power system to the operators for load dispatch.This data is also extended to Chairman,all the companies heads,and other important offices at Raipur Head Quarter through Remote control stations for monitoring and quick decisions.
The SCADA system is equipped with self-diagnostic features along with facilities for recording of Sequence of Events (SOE) giving the type, location and occurrence of specific events. This information is used for post fault diagnosis/studies. Apart from above, the system is also equipped with historical data recorder (HTR) which records power system dynamics even under normal conditions which can be replayed at any point of time for reference or analytic studies.
