Municipal Electrical Engineering Design:

  Process Instrumentation and  Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) 


In today's environment of cost conscious operation, including not only the process portion of the system, but also the labor-intensive portion of maintaining a system, the design of the control strategy and the hardware that implements the strategy is critical.  The engineering staff of D & D Engineering is mindful of these various facets in their design of the individual systems for each project.  Projects are not alike, they have their own identities in their process parameters as well as their client needs.  Each process design requires careful analysis of the correct instrumentation application to allow the process to function correctly.  The wrong choice of a primary element instrument could result in improper operation and/or continual maintenance problems with either the instrument or the system.  The individual instrumentation and the overall SCADA systems are designed keeping both of these systems in balance.  The overall cost of the system, both from an initial installation standpoint, and from an upgrade/maintenance standpoint are also factors in the final criteria for designing the best-fit SCADA system. 


The engineering staff of D & D Engineering maintains its cutting-edge technology base by continual upgrade of their educational information of process instrumentation and SCADA systems through seminars and other formal training.
