Abstract: It is very difficult to meet energy requirements using a single renewable energy source. This will make it easier to meet energy needs by building hybrid systems using more than one renewable energy source. Therefore, a hybrid system may play an important role in the future. But in this it is very important to control all the parameters of the system, so a system that controls all these parameters is essential. Controlling all factors of renewable energy sources is a future requirement, so proper control systems must be implemented on the controllers. The supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) has ability to control the factors of hybrid renewable energy systems. SCADA provide human-machine interface, data acquisition and control over a system. PLC is an element that helps to automate the entire hybrid system. In renewable sources integration, SCADA and PLC will provide solutions to streamline the system and implement decisions made by the controller. This paper reviews the various benefits of SCADA in making decisions for energy management systems, energy availability, financial and security energy supply to consumers.

Keywords: supervisory control and data acquisition; SCADA; programmable logic controller; PLC; renewable energy; Web SCADA.
