GUI Based Distribution Automation System

Ankita Gupta [5] | Rashmi Pant [2]

Abstract: Industrial automation is a sector having vast possibilities for major improvements. The system described in this paper consists of a console master computer (CMC) which will monitor various physical nodes usually found in a large industry. The proposed work analyzes the capability of CAN networking which includes data traffic management. The CMC is designed using MATLAB 7.12, the CAN networking is supported using the Vehicular Network Toolbox. The proposed system using CAN has the advantages of being simple in its design which contributes to the overall low cost. The novelty of the work lies in the low cost approach, and fails safe methodology of CAN communication. The proposed system is capable of sending and receiving signals with the additional benefit of feedback mechanism. The proposed work is implementable in any industry with the cost advantage of CAN interface. The proposed work can be used as a cheaper and robust alternative to native technologies like PLC (Programmable Logic Controller). Moreover, the CAN network system is immune from the electrical interferences Despite years of activity, truly open and intelligent control systems seem still to be a promise of the future. Agreement on common architectures and application objects is needed to raise open control systems from exchanging raw data to the level of real interoperability of off-the-shelf components. Future control platforms and programming languages should have new built-in mechanisms that support implementation of intelligent functions, such as flexible resource management and exception handling. This article argues that many of these challenges can be met by taking full advantage of emerging software engineering technologies. This also means that the modeling techniques and design practices of software engineering should be combined with the traditional ways of thinking in automation.
