Chapter 10: Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition. This chapter discusses control systems used within and throughout (just about) every sector. Control systems consist of two subset topics: distributed control systems, which are the distribution mechanisms of a large geographical area; and supervisory control and data acquisition systems, which are devices that interface with noncomputing functions that are critical to that sector (value control, switch control, flow metering, etc.).
