Forrestfield Airport Link: Reducing Operational Risks Through the Integration of New Technologies

Forrestfield Airport Link: Reducing Operational Risks Through the Integration of New Technologies

Ahead of SCADA 2017 we chat to Andrew di Carlo, Communication and Control Systems Principal Engineer for the Forrestfield-Airport Link and Public Transport Authority (FAL) about FAL’s new $2 billion project that will provide a rail link between Perth City and Perth Airport. Andrew discusses the project’s two distinct SCADA systems and delves into how seamless integration is reducing operational risks and ensuring long-term safety.
SCADA innovation: How to test relays without blacking out the zone substation

SCADA innovation: How to test relays without blacking out the zone substation

The utilities sector is moving towards smart grid technology – a shift that reflects the rapid advances in technical capacity for SCADA systems. Victoria University (VU) in Melbourne will become a cornerstone for integrating smart grid technology into Australia’s electricity supply market, with the development of one of the world’s few (if not first) Zone Substation Simulator Centre (VZSSC). At the last SCADA event, two of the project’s lead specialists shared exclusive insight into the technical specifications, research and development, and what it means for the electricity supply industry. 

Hack Attack: Intelligent Defence for SCADA

Hack Attack: Intelligent Defence for SCADA

Ahead of SCADA 2017 we chat to Dr. Elena Sitnikova, Critical Infrastructure Protection Research Leader at the Australian Centre for Cyber Security.

Elena discusses the risks automation poses to SCADA legacy systems and  highlights the points on internet of things (IoT) for industrial systems.  She describes a shifting focus to cyber-physical systems that require balancing machine to machine interaction (M2M) towards human-machine interactions and delves into potential tools and solutions to protect networks from unauthorised access and attacks. 

 Applying IoT to the Water Industry: A Case Study

Applying IoT to the Water Industry: A Case Study

In this presentation from the SCADA Australia Summit in 2017, Jim Baker, SCADA Acquisition Manager, WA Water Corporation discusses tater industry protocols such as DNP3 and WITS. This presentation will cover:
  • Why has WITS decided to focus on IoT?
  • WITS IoT?
  • A discussion of the benefits and challenges of WITS-IoT versus WITS-DNP3
The Necessity of Protecting SCADA Networks

The Necessity of Protecting SCADA Networks

In this presentation from SCADA Australia 2017, Dr Elena Sitnikova, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Research LeaderAustralian Centre for Cyber Security will look at:
  • Understanding where network interdependencies create the most vulnerabilities
  • Operating SCADA under the assumption that it is insecure and continuing under this persistent threat
  • Using computational intelligence to mend the internet’s underlying insecurity and thus making it safer for SCADA to operate over

Creating Business-wide Efficiencies by Utilising Virtual Tags to Extract Additional Value from Archived Data

Creating Business-wide Efficiencies by Utilising Virtual Tags to Extract Additional Value from Archived Data

Ahead of the SCADA Summit 2018 we chat to Dr. Peter Prevos, Manager of Data Science at Coliban Water. In this article Peter chats to us about Coliban Water’s newly developed virtual tag system. These tags extract, analyse and report on data available through SCADA, providing Coliban Water with a clearer contextual backdrop for analysis.
