Contributions to the Analysis and the Supervision of a Thermal Power Plant


Supervision systems play an important role in industry mainly due to the increasing demand for product quality and high efficiency, and to the growing integration of automatic control systems in technical processes. In fact, the supervision system has a great number of components and interconnections, and it is difficult to describe and understand its behavior. Furthermore, the supervision system in industrial plants, implemented in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software, must undertake, at least, the following three main tasks: monitoring, control and fault tolerance. So it can be classified as a complex system. The objective of this paper is to show interests of the use of functional analysis techniques such as SADT (Structured Analysis and Design Technique) and SA-RT (Structured Analysis Real Time) for the design of supervisory systems. This is why we present a general model of analysis and supervision of production systems. This model was based on the one hand on the functional analysis (FA) and on the other hand on the SCADA system.
