AMP's Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system collects real-time data from meters and remote terminal units (RTUs) from over 400 sites across AMP’s membership, which includes generation projects.
SCADA is used by the AMP Energy Control Center to monitor remote sites, start and stop remote generation, and store information in a data historian which then feeds reports used for billing, load forecasting, monitoring, and alerting.
AMP's SCADA system communicates with remote field devices using several types of communications technologies including high speed fiber, satellite and cellular. These communications enable the SCADA system to read data points several times a minute, or near real-time.
AMP's SCADA team manages and provides 24/7 support for the AMP SCADA system and connected field devices. They also work with Members and other entities to provide onsite support at remote sites.
