Energy is considered to be one of the major elements of development, and can act as an indicator to assess the rate of growth and economic development. International forecasts show that global energy demand is increasing with a consistent momentum and in the next 20 years, global energy consumption will rise by more than %50. Therefore, the emerging theory of intelligent buildings and the necessity to control energy consumption in large buildings can be traced back to several years ago. This theory has led to many researches concerning design and development of this type of building with the goal of reaching the maximum energy efficiency for smart infrastructures.

First level: By the local controllers (hardware) the management of each area is assigned to one of the local controllers.

Second level: central software controls the entire local fire alarm systems, cameras and access control systems.

Building Automation System (BAS) department was established in Kerman Tablo in 2006.BAS has accomplished essential and immense experiences in design, consultancies and after sale services due to the implementation of different projects, in providing cooperation of the highest level in terms of consultancy to governmental and privately owned organizations.

Building Management system works on two levels:

Due to the breakdown of management control levels, done by the software system of the central and local control, the local controller can continue its activities even if the communication between local control and central software is disconnected, and can maintain the control of the related area. Therefore, there will be no gap in the building management.  Meanwhile, the communication interruption will be reported graphically by the central control software.

BAS system consists of:

- Closed Crcuit Television (CCTV)

-Access Control

-Fire Alarm

-Broadband over Power Line (BPL)

the software program, usually configured in a hierarchical manner, can be proprietary, using such protocols as C-bus. Besides, vendors are also producing BMSs that integrate using Internet protocols and open standards such as Device Net, SOAP, XML, BACnet, Lon Works and Modbus.  Such systems can be seen and utilized in: Chillers, Industrial Coolers, Boiler, Fan- Coil (Radiator) & Heater, Air Conditioner, Pump, Water Heater and Lighting.

DCS Software

KTC DCS has a software package for PC’s and controller installations.This package is divided into 5 parts:


1. Local Controller Unit (LCU)This sub-system is responsible to gather analog/digital data from IO boards and performs control routines and loops (such as inter-locks and PID loops) and sequence controls. This unit can handle all sorts of process controls such as, Logic control, Sequence control, Computational algorithms, Control algorithms and Simulation. And also supports:

  • Full redundant of capabilities
  • Supports IEC 61131-3 programming languages
  • All kinds of protocols such as Modbus, Profibus,  and CAN
  • Optional human machine interface (HMI )
  • Time Tag (1ms)
2. Data Acquisition Server (DAS)DAS is responsible for the communication between LCU and OWS. In some applications the DAS software can also be redundant and run on two different computers. This subsystem receives the event messages from LCU and analyzes them for alarm handling.

3. Operating Work Station (OWS)

The OWS is an interface between users and DCS systems. By using this system via various displays, the operator can handle all his actions. Different types of displays allow the operator to easily handle a large amount of data in different textures and graphical formats. For each control loop, OWS allows the operator to perform all  normal control functions and monitoring the results of these actions.


For each function available in OWS there is an access flag that must be set by engineers during the configuration phase, so users of these systems (Operators, Engineers, Supervisors) have different levels of access for their operation.
Different types of displays available in these systems are Process display, Group display, Object display, Trend display, Alarm list display, Event list display




4. Historical Server (HIS)

For historical applications and analysis historical data, it is required to take samples from real time data and then archive them in a database. The data can be re-loaded from databases and historical applications can be undertaken. Usually Microsoft SQL server is used as a database engine for storing data. The HIS package connects to this server for showing data in graphical trends.




5. Engineering Work Station (EWS)

EWS is a suitable place for configuration of the DCS system. The system operator can define or edit all parts of the system, including LCU, DAS, OWS, HIS, and all other Subsystems in the DCS including their different libraries.

The configuration consists of:

  • System architecture and station relatives.
  • Process databases and related parameters.
  • Different type of process displays.
  • Different type of graphical blocks.
  • Programming control routines and loops.
  • Users, user groups, and their accessibility features.
  • Alarm/Event, Network and Printers.
  • Different type of graphical blocks.
  • Programming control routines and loops.

SCADA Hardware


A RTU, Remote Terminal Unit is an industrial computer which interfaces objects in the physical world to a DCS or SCADA system by transmitting telemetry data to the system and/or altering the state of connected objects based on control messages received from the system.
The RTU provides intelligence in the field, and allows the central SCADA master to communicate with the field instruments. It is a standalone data acquisition and control unit. Its function is to control process equipment at the remote site, acquire data from the equipment, and return the data to the central SCADA system.
As an EPC contractor, KTC provides various solutions for SCADA projects using different RTUs; its own internally developed products or every other brand’s proper RTU.

SCADA Software

KTC SCADA Features

Modular Structure

Each module or subsystem independently runs certain control and monitoring tasks during system runtime. All system data operations are handled and controlled by subsystems.

1. RedundancyEvery subsystem optionally has an identical subsystem working in parallel as hot-standby subsystem which runs on a separate hardware. During normal operation, standby subsystem updates its own database. By the time the main subsystem crashes for any reason, standby subsystems resume functionality while the main system automatically tries to recover the failed subsystem in standby mode and providing operator with appropriate alarm.

2. Scalability

Subsystems operate their own tasks independently. Based on this method subsystems are distributed, and system configuration differs. KTC SCADA subsystems are distributed by function, e.g. one or more subsystems may run a part of a systems operation. Scalability gives the system capability of scaling system to a desired capacity with little change in configuration and consequently minimum expense, achieving higher availability of the system as the system becomes more distributed, while extending the system life time.

3. Open system standards and operating systemsThe open architecture of KTC SCADA provides easy access to the system, it is designed to support Open standards such as ODBC (Open Data base Connectivity) and OPC (OLE for Process Control). The main SCADA subsystems are available on the industry standard operating systems such as UNIX, Solaris, Linux, and Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 operating systems over IPC or SUN machines. Choice of database is also open to Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle or PostureSQL. 4. Security and Access ControlKTC SCADA systems are implemented with several layers of security. Supervisors can assign the level of accessibility to users. Working with internal networks and using firewalls, makes it a very secure system.

 5. Standard development tools

Standard development methods, languages and tools are used in order to provide systems which are hardware-supplier independent and can easily and cost effectively be ported to new hardware platforms or operating systems. This also enables the integration of other software’s in an efficient manner.
