SCADA SYSTEM FOR MONITORING AND CONTROLLING ENERGY IN SMARTHOME WITH HYBRID WIND-SOLAR POWER PLANT
This paper presents the development of a SCADA system to monitor and control the energy in a smarthome. In the system, the renewable energy resources consist of the PV generator and the wind power generator are connected to grid. The Winlog SCADA software is employed to develop the SCADA system. The remote devices consist of the power meter to measure the load power, the charge controller to charge the battery from the PV and the wind power generator, and the load control to switch on/off the load. To connect the master control and the remote devices, the RS-485 serial communication is adopted. While the Modbus protocol is employed to communicate the Winlog SCADA and the remote devices. The experimental results show that the developed system is able to perform the SCADA task properly under the different types of the remote devices.
