|Title||A Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) for Water Pumping Stations of Gaza|
Gaza has scarce water resources. At present, there are more than 40 wells that are supposed to supply adequate water from the aquifer to the public through the water distribution network. However, the pumping stations at these wells along with the distribution network are managed manually by operators in a primitive manner. During peak consumption periods, which may last for weeks, water is not delivered to wide areas and resources are not distributed evenly to public. Operators try hardly to achieve fairness by manually controlling gate valves along with pumping stations. The aim of this research is to design a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for managing the water pumping stations in Gaza. This system is expected to increase customer satisfaction, reduce water distribution cost and provide an accurate overview of the plants’ operations. Moreover, SCADA stores valuable information about the water system performance. This data is necessary for efficient development of the existent distribution system in a way that meets population growth.
