Electrical Engineering Tech students tour WPS

wpsElectrical Engineering Technology students led by Assistant Prof. M. Upal Mahfuz recently toured the Wisconsin Public Service (WPS) Corporation, a utility company in Green Bay, Wis. In Northeast and Central Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, more than 450,000 electricity customers and more than 326,000 natural gas customers receive service from the WPS. Mahfuz said the tour was a great opportunity for UW-Green Bay students to see practical SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems in operation. The students also experienced the functionality of SCADA systems in real time and the roles of SCADA engineers in power systems application.
