  • An Evaluation of the Applicability of OPC UA Publish Subscribe on Factory Automation use Cases

    In today's factory automation the exchange of data between systems becomes more and more important. The goal is to use one communication technology through all levels of a factory automation. Now the challenge is to find a communication technology that fulfills all the requirements on the different levels. The Server/Client architecture used in OPC UA became the de facto standard for several use cases in the upper levels, but in the lower levels e.g. Control-to-Control and Field level, OPC UA wasn't performant enough to replace today's fieldbus technologies. Therefore the OPC Foundation extended OPC UA by a Publish Subscribe architecture which was released in March 2018 in the OPC UA Specification Part 14. This paper gives an overview of this specification and an evaluation of the applicability of OPC UA communication technologies in combination with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) on factory automation use cases.

  • New interactions between LV customers and the network: further possibilities for home automation functions

    In recent years Italian power sector has been undergoing considerable changes: EU Directive on electricity (96/92/EC) established common rules for the creation of internal markets and required privatization of Italy's dominant energy monopolies, but also extended to all domestic customers the possibility to choose their own energy retailers starting from July 2007. This will involve a new role for the final user who will change from passive consumer to active participant. To get the most advantage from this opportunity it is necessary to provide a platform which will be interoperable with home and building automation systems and that will supply several functionalities as communicate with distributor/retailer, interact with consumer, manage loads, energy storages and domestic micro-generation. In this way households will become active "nodes" of the electric network that could also provide services for the network (power modulation) and the market (reduce energy price volatility).

  • Research on SOM-DBN Based Fault Early Warning System For Dispatching Automation

    With the development of computer and network communication technology, substation comprehensive automation system has been widely applied in power network, thus power dispatching center can collect and monitor a lot of power network operation information. How to draw useful diagnosis rules from history and real time operational state data of power network, how to use these rules to find important information and exceptional situation from power network real time state data and give early warning of potential fault in time and correctly, become a significant and urgent research problem of dispatching automation system. This paper presents a framework of SOM-DBN based fault early warning system for dispatching automation, including data monitoring, diagnosis and warning, rule drawing, management control center, memory unit. Data monitoring module is used to monitor real time operational data of power network; diagnosis and warning module is designed to build diagnosis model, identify important information and exceptional situation, and send out warning information according to diagnosis rules; rule drawing module uses data mining methods find potential knowledge and rules from history and real time data; management control center as the system backbone aims at the whole management and cooperation; storage unit, composed of database, knowledge-base and rule- base, is used to store operational state data, expert domain knowledge and diagnosis rules. The proposed system can monitor power network state and realize early fault warning through two stages. In the first stage, it constructs fault diagnosis model for power network. Firstly, it clusters history data by SOM and finds clustered feature variables; secondly, through rule drawing module, it can identify fault zone and work out corresponding measures according to clustered feature variables combined with expert domain knowledge; then it uses LVQ algorithm to train SOM network model; next it uses the fault zone sample data to train diagnosis Bayesian network model and learns model parameters. In the second stage, the system can monitor power network state and realize fault diagnosis and warning. Through data monitoring module, it monitors the environment state variables and determines the need for situation assessment; through diagnosis and warning module, it propagates event cues, projects events, diagnoses situation, warns fault and prorides decision-marking. The SOM-DBN based fault early warning system has been applied into dispatching automation system ON2000, and effectively improved the diagnosis and warning capability of dispatching automation system.

  • Advanced process automation using automation agents

    Current process automation solutions have a limited capability concerning agile adaptation in a dynamic environment as well as in the case of unexpected internal and external disturbances. Distributed intelligent control systems based on agent technologies are seen as a promising approach to handle the dynamics in large complex systems. In this paper, we present a multi-agent system architecture capable to answer to the major requirements in the process domain. The architecture is based on agents with diverse responsibilities and tasks and additionally separates the control software of agents controlling hardware components into two levels, the high level control and the low level control. Our system architecture has also the ability to flexibly reschedule allocated jobs in the case of resource breakdowns in order to minimize downtimes and resulting costs. The system is currently tested and evaluated in the Odo Struger Laboratory at the Automation and Control Institute.

  • Penetration testing automation assessment method based on rule tree

    With the application to assess the network and system security in some key fields, penetration testing assessment methods have been evolving into a popular research topic. However, the automation degree of penetration testing is at a lower level, and many parameters of security assessment method is uncertain. For these two problems above, we use rule trees method to achieve the automation process of penetration testing, and each chain of rule trees stores a complete the attack process. By using the result of penetration testing, we propose the security assessment process to meet the NIST guidelines, and it can make some uncertain parameters of security assessment clear. With the constant expansion of rule trees, the proposed method can improve the accuracy and effectiveness of security assessment.
