The energy industry is one of the domains that need control and monitoring at several levels. This article presents a SCADA monitoring system targeting a large scale process which is in need of immediate and frequent interventions: the monitoring and control of an electrical installation supplied by a hydro-generator. Citect SCADA was used to design a flexible solution and can be used for small or large hydro-generators. The SCADA solution created will be used for the functioning optimization, transmission and supervising of functioning programs execution.
