SCADA – EESA’s Fundamentals series

SCADA – EESA’s Fundamentals series

Date change

New date: Thursday 9 May 2019


EESA is pleased to present Peter Poulos of Energy Queensland who will present the next in EESA Queensland’s fundamentals series of topics - SCADA.

How well do you know the technology your remote systems and control rooms depend upon?

While perhaps not a flavour of the month like the topical “Internet-of-Things” or “Deep Learning” SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) and related operational technology disciplines are a key enabling infrastructure of many industries.

Technology will continue to evolve rapidly and change some of the ways we provide the remote monitoring and control of assets. The fundamental need to deliver these services in a robust manner is increasing. The exponential growth in telecommunications capacity driven by the internet, mobile computing and the growth of home automation makes it easier and cheaper than ever to remotely control and monitor almost anything.

Just as SCADA practitioners leverage knowledge from other domains, some of lessons the SCADA domain has collectively learnt from over the last 80 odd years might be worth considering.

The talk will cover:

  • Origins and fundamental concepts
  • Directions and challenges from an electrical distribution network perspective


Peter Poulos, Energy Queensland

Peter is an Electronic Engineer working on SCADA and Telecommunications systems and standards for Energy Queensland.

From his initial undergraduate thesis project with Leeds & Northrup Australia to the present day, Peter has been involved in communication and control systems work of one form or another for more than 20 years.

Having had the good fortune to work closely with and learn from bright and experienced experts both local and international, from both the end-user corporation side and the product development side, Peter is well placed to provide a holistic overview of the Fundamentals of SCADA.
