Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analysis the water treatment process in a thermal power plant (TPP). In fact, we present an application of a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. Thus, an example of a SCADA system of the center of RADES in Tunisia was presented. Our contribution in this work consists in the analysis of the water loss in the TPP on the one hand and the supervision of the water extraction circuit using the SCADA system, on the other hand.
 
Key words: Water extraction, water loss; thermal power plant, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).
