thanks to Mike Filley of Square D Company
On Tuesday, May 24, M. N. (Mike) Filley of Square-D
Company presented Critical
Power Distribution Systems. Mike's presentation discussed
some of the latest distribution systems, their pros and cons,
and the difficulties in achieving the "perfect" system--reliable,
selective, safe and cost-effective.
We appreciate Mike taking the time to help us understand the
principles of critical power systems that he obviously knows
so well and for sending us the presentation
slides for those
that did not attend as well as those who would like to further
study Mike's presentation. Thank you Mike.
big thank you to--Mark Hunter of Invensys Process Systems
On Tuesday, April 26, Mark
Hunter presented a summary of supervisory control and data
acquisition (SCADA) systems, distributed control systems (DCS),
and programmable logic controllers (PLC). His talk included
technologies, advantages, and disadvantages. Mark showed how
hybrid control system architecture fills the gap between DCS
and PLC systems. He concluded his presentation with an overview
of system security issues, including physical security, control
system security, network security, and integration legal mandates.
He was also kindly provided a copy of his presentation
slides. Mark is with Invensys
We really appreciate Mark traveling from Chicago to for this
presentation. Thank you.
