Survalent Technology, a provider of smart grid solutions, has commissioned a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for Texas State Technical College (TSTC).

The new system features Survalent's open-architecture system based on Windows Server. It includes several of Survalent's open-system applications, including Worldview, SCADA Explorer, IED Wizard and Control Panel. There are intelligent electronic devices (IEDS) from other manufacturers, SEL and S&C, as well as Survalent's SCOUT RTU, connected to the SCADA system.

TSTC’s SCADA system will be used for the Smart Grid Technologies discipline and SCADA Communications sub-discipline in the Telecommunications Group, which consists of approximately 700 students.

“The Survalent SCADA system will be an important tool used by TSTC in the education of the future technical users of smart grid technologies in the electric utilities for the state of Texas,” says Mike Roth, Survalent’s vice president of sales for the central U.S.
