PLC and SCADA Laboratory Experiments for a Final Year Instrumentation Course

Kiing Ing Wong and Teck Ung Siaw
Abstract—This paper presents a method of preparing Programmer Logic Controller (PLC) and Supervisory and Data Acquisition (SCADA) laboratory experiments for a final year instrumentation course. It is the process of continuous quality improvement to produce work-ready graduates. The students are taught with the up to date technology for monitoring and control using in industry. Recently, Ethernet-enable PLC was rapidly introduced into modern SCADA systems for the monitoring and control of industrial process, other scientific application and even office processes. However, set up a modern SCADA laboratory may sometimes costly and requires specific skills. Therefore, institutes and instructors may reluctant to do it. In this paper, it will be shown that generally the PLC and SCADA laboratory experiments can be set up within limited budget and the student can completed the basic experiments in four laboratory sections in one semester period.

Index Terms—PLC, SCADA, teaching and learning.
