           utilities throughout North America.

           History: Although formally incorporated in 1982, Tetragenics’ history began in 1972. In the early
           seventies, the automation department of a Montana utility company successfully synchronized and started
           hydroelectric generators remotely. These pioneering engineering efforts in hardware and software design
           became the basis of Tetragenics. Since then, we have advanced the product lines and continued to provide
           innovative monitoring and control systems. In 2002, MSE purchased Tetragenics to add to an expanding

                        PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
                        The first system we designed and installed was created to automate a hydroelectric plant with six, 10 MW
                        generators (the first such automation in this country) as well as provide the SCADA functionality with the
                        substations. Since then, we have extended our business to include system integration and consulting
                        services, and expanded our range to the power transmission/distribution and substation industry,
                        telecommunications industry, water and wastewater co-operatives, the mining industry, and government
                        projects. As security issues become paramount, we also use our years of experience working with
                        SCADA systems to modify software and hardware to provide additional security at remote sites and
                        dams.

                        Our systems contain multiple layers of products. This modular design makes it easier to change hardware,
                        is cost-effective, and provides additional security. The layered products seamlessly combine into
                        advanced systems with versatile features such as the following:

Specific Products and Services

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA)
  Tetragenics SCADA systems provide unsurpassed reliability and security for clients. System
  highlights include time-stamped sequence of events recording to one millisecond, analog data
  processing at the RTU, and reporting by exception. Our SCADA systems are extremely popular for
  use in generating stations and in industrial load control and energy management applications. They
  monitor and control electric power generation stations, substations, and transmission lines; provide
  security in industrial buildings; and help manage fresh water and wastewater systems.

  Designed with the user in mind, our systems are sophisticated but easy to use and learn. Advanced
  editing software gives operators control, while color graphic, user-specified screens show the system
  status at a glance. Operating in an open, real-time environment, our SCADA systems provide features
  essential for companies working in today’s data intensive, automated environments:

      Accurate time tagging
      System enhancing hysteresis and filtering
      Self-checking mechanism (watchdog timers)
      Interval processing
      Analog averaging
      Special alarm functions
      Point overrides
      Control tags
      Fast processing: program code resides in Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EPROM)
      Proportional Integral Derivative (PID) closed loop control
      Sequential control features
      Versatile software modules that allow you to add special features to support unique
       characteristics
      The ability to communicate with other intelligent electronic devices (IEDs)

Power Plant Automation and Control
  For plant operation that is both reliable and cost-effective, our fully integrated plant automation and
  control system, with a selection of operations modules, will meet your requirements. It is suited to
  large, unattended facilities such as hydroelectric generating facilities. Tighter controls and cost savings
  are only some of the benefits that our plant automation technology will bring to your operation.

Substation Automation and Control
  The same products used in the power plant applications also monitor and control substations.
  Millisecond “time-stamping” of alarms is a very important feature to help in trouble-shooting system
  interruptions. Communication with other intelligent devices such as meters and relays not only cut
  down on construction costs, but also provide all the information available from these devices.

Communications Monitoring and Control System (CMS)
  Our line of advanced products and software allows you to monitor and control virtually every type of
  communication medium, such as microwave, cellular, fiber optic, hardwire, satellite, and radio.
  Communications are critical to your business. Tetragenics equipment will keep your communications
  network up and running.

Remote Terminal Units
  One of our continually growing products is the intelligent RTU that is smart and fast. An inventive
  design enables the RTU to process information at the remote site and transmit only the information
  required for routine system operation (reporting by exception). This feature frees up the master
  terminal to perform vital tasks while eliminating the transfer of useless data. If communication is
  interrupted, the RTUs keep working, storing valuable data for automatic recall once communication is
  restored. Nothing is lost. We also provide RTUs that can dial out to the master to establish
  communications. No other product provides a superior package of speed, versatility, accuracy,
  reliability, and value. To meet industry demands, we offer a family of RTUs including small RTUs
  (one rack unit size called MiniMotes) that perform the functions but take up less space. Each RTU in a
  family gives you intelligent monitoring and controlling capabilities, and then builds on that base to
  offer advanced features. For more information, visit the RTU site at
  http://www.tetragenics.com/rtus.htm.

  SCADA and CMS RTUs: Both the SCADA and CMS RTUs are modular in design — this allows for
  convenient maintenance and cost-effective expandability. Plus, we can customize each configuration
  based on customer needs and site requirements. Within the SCADA family of RTUs, we offer a choice
  of two powerful processing units: the TG332 RTU or VME RTU. Each unit gives you intelligent
  monitoring and controlling capabilities, and then builds on that base to offer advanced features.


Master Platforms
  We offer single or dual master systems and Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) that can accommodate
  hundreds of RTUs and other interfaces with thousands of input/output points. We provide a host of
  options and software platforms to ensure you get the system you want.

  Tetragenics’ MC3000 SCADA Master contains features that place Ethernet, Intranet/Internet, and dial
  up capabilities at your fingertips, at the speed you need. Able to run on multiple platforms, the
  MC3000 is ideally suited for monitoring and control systems that require performance and scalability
  offered by today’s powerful computers. Using DNP3 Host protocol, the MC3000 achieves standard,
  open-based interconnectivity between substation computers, RTUs, intelligent electronic devices
  (IEDs), and other master stations. The MC3000 combines advanced Tetragenics software with 32-bit
  protected mode processing, built-in diagnostics, critical alarm upgrading, security, Ethernet support,
  multi-region/number callout, network data logging, and multiple downloading options. And you can

                     PROJECT ORGANIZATION AND EXPERIENCE
                     MSE-Tetragenics organizes personnel in a modified matrix system. A Project Engineer (PE)/Project
                     Manager (PM) is assigned to each project. Core personnel are also assigned to larger projects if
                     warranted. The PE/PM is responsible for all aspects of project implementation, including client interface,
                     budget and schedule, skill base allocation, as well as all technical and quality requirements. The PE/PM is
                     the customer’s single point of contact for all aspects of the project.

                     A baseline schedule, clearly defining milestones of interest to the customer, is developed at the beginning
                     of each project. In the case of cost reimbursement projects, budgets are also attached to scheduled
                     activities. This baseline forms the basis for project tracking and reporting for the life of the project. As the
                     project evolves, any situation that impacts completion of critical milestones is negotiated with the
                     customer prior to changing the baseline.

                     The PE/PM is responsible for keeping both the customer and management apprised of the status of the
                     project. Project status is reported to senior management on a monthly basis. This internal status review
                     allows us to redirect company resources to ensure that all projects are completed in a timely, cost-
                     effective manner.

                     We believe that cooperation and communication between the customer and PE/PM is essential to the
                     success of any project. As such, our project organizational approach encourages open communications
                     with the customer. We also believe that communication with construction contractors during the design
Project Management




                     phase provides valuable insights that will ultimately benefit all parties.

                     Our staff includes engineers experienced in construction administration and we provide these services on
                     many of our engineering projects. For each project, we define owner, contractor, and engineer
                     relationships and performance expectations as outlined by the Engineer’s Joint Contract Documents
                     Committee (EJCDC) unless directed otherwise. We use EJCDC documents whenever possible; however,
                     the concepts and principals of these documents are generally applicable to work using other standard
                     documents.

                     We have gathered real life project management knowledge and experience. Our PEs/PMs work with the
                     customer from start to finish, and beyond. As our front line for customer service, our PEs/PMs provide
                     top-of-the-line services, including the following:

                            Working with system designers to capture customer requirements
                            Setting clear objectives and project definitions
                            Defining the scope of the project
                            Organizing all project planning, schedules, and resource forecasting
                            Providing progress tracking and reporting
                            Managing Customer’s expectations

Army Corps of Engineers – Nashville District – Dale Hollow Project
The Dale Hollow Dam is a
US Army Corps of Engineers
(USACE) operated
hydroelectric power
generating plant that is
located two miles northeast of
Celina, Tennessee. The intent
of this Dale Hollow project is
to upgrade the dam from its
current control configuration
to a digital control
configuration that can be
operated remotely from
Cordell Hull Dam located
north of Carthage, Tennessee.
A “one-button” startup at Dale Hollow from Cordell Hull Dam is the objective of this project. The Center
Hill Dam is currently controlled via the existing MSE-Tetragenics SCADA system at Cordell Hull. The
Dale Hollow Project consists of providing new equipment to automate Dale Hollow and upgrading the
existing SCADA systems at Cordell Hull and Center Hill Plants. Refer to project 2 describing previous
Cordell Hull/Center Hill projects. USACE awarded MSE-Tetragenics the contract (via Tinaa Services,
Inc.) for the Dale Hollow Project in October, 2008, with completion scheduled in 2009. We also had
previously provided engineering and technical assistance for the Dale Hollow Plant generator
synchronization scheme.

Cordell Hull / Dale Hollow and Center Hill Plant Control Systems. All three plants provide
hydroelectric power and are managed by the USACE.

 (Carthage, TN) and dedicated, intelligent RTUs located at the Center Hill Hydroelectric Plant (Lancaster,
 TN) and the Dale Hollow Hydroelectric Plant (Celina, TN).

 There are three generators located in the Dale Hollow plant, each with a rated capacity of 18 MW. Dale
 Hollow also contains a smaller generator to provide station service power. Power is transmitted from the
 plant using transmission lines, interconnected to each other and the plant via power transformers and
 switchyard equipment.

 There are three identical generators located in the Center Hill plant, each with a rated capacity of 45
 MW. Center Hill also contains a smaller generator to provide station service power. Power is transmitted
 from the plant using a combination of 161 KV and 46KV transmission lines, interconnected to each other
 and the plant via power transformers and switchyard equipment.

 All Center Hill and Dale Hollow Plant equipment is monitored and controlled by one VME based RTU at
 each plant. This RTU can start and stop the generators, control the MW output, control the exciter to
 adjust the generator voltage and MVARs, perform corrective actions in response to alarm conditions,
 and monitor various quantities associated with the plant. It can also operate independently of the Master
 processor to provide safe control of the Plant if communication with the Master is lost. Another small
 RTU located in the Cordell Hull Power Plant provides several analog output signals and controls the
 Cordell Hull Plant annunciator horn.

 MSE-Tetragenics is providing the SR4000 Speed Relay for shaft speed detection and control at Dale
 Hollow. In addition, both Dale Hollow and Center Hill RTUs communicate via Modbus protocol with three
 temperature recorders to monitor critical temperatures in each plant.

 The Master processor is the MSE-Tetragenics MC3000 Master. The Master communicates with the
 RTUs via Ethernet TCP/IP satellite/T1 links. The Master is responsible for presenting information to the
 Plant operators, accepting commands from the operators, logging alarm and status changes, and
 coordinating actions between the RTUs.

 The Master interacts with the plant operators via operator workstations. A workstation is based on a
 personal computer (PC) platform and operates with the MSE-Tetragenics WTV (WinTetraVision) Human
 Machine Interface (HMI) software package. From a workstation, an operator can display information in a
 logical manner and issue commands to perform various actions. The workstations communicate with the
 Master using an Ethernet network. Also, the Master itself contains the WTV software and can be used
 as a workstation. You can also configure the Master as a node on a local Ethernet network. Doing so
 allows any PC on the network that contains the WTV software to act as an operator workstation.

 The Master logs information to daily log files as well as two printers. One printer logs all alarm and status
 changes. The other prints various reports produced by the Master. Either printer will take over the
 function of the other if the other printer fails. Both printers communicate with the Master using dedicated
 serial communications lines, and both are continuous feed impact printers so that any messages and
 reports are printed immediately. A virtual desktop printer is also available from any PC on the LAN.

 The Master logs alarm and status changes, operator commands, and other information to disk files for
 archival purposes. Also, the Master obtains MWHr information from multiple JEMStar meters via DNP
 Protocol communication to intelligent devices located at the Cordell Hull, Dale Hollow and the Center Hill
 Plants.

 2. General Scope of Work – Contract Value:
 Initial Contract (2000): $245,400 To Date: $255,906
 Task: Automate the Center Hill hydroelectric plant to allow remote monitoring and control from the
 Cordell Hull Hydroelectric Plant and obtain MWHR data from JEM-2 Meters at both plants.

 History: The Cordell Hull and Center Hill projects were designed by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers
 and built by private contractors under the supervision of the Corps. The dams, power plants, and
 reservoirs are operated by the Nashville District of the Corps of Engineers. Both projects were designed
 to develop hydroelectric power and control water resources in the Cumberland River basin.

 System: The Cordell Hull MC3000 SCADA System is a Hydroelectric Plant Control System. It consists of
 an MSE-Tetragenics MC3000 Master processor located at the Cordell Hull Hydroelectric Plant
 (Carthage, TN) and a dedicated, intelligent RTU located at the Center Hill Hydroelectric Plant
 (Lancaster, TN).

 There are three identical generators located in the Center Hill plant, each with a rated capacity of 45
 MW. Center Hill also contains a smaller generator to provide station service power. Power is transmitted
 from the plant using a combination of 161 KV and 46KV transmission lines, interconnected to each other
 and the plant via power transformers and switchyard equipment.

 All Center Hill Plant equipment is monitored and controlled by the one RTU. This RTU can start and stop
 the generators, control the MW output, control the exciter to adjust the generator voltage and MVARs,
 perform corrective actions in response to alarm conditions, and monitor various quantities associated
 with the plant. It can also operate independently of the Master processor to provide safe control of the
 Plant if communication with the Master is lost. Another small RTU located in the Cordell Hull Power
 Plant provides several analog output signals and controls the Cordell Hull Plant annunciator horn.

 The Master processor is the MSE-Tetragenics MC3000 Master. The Master communicates with the
 RTUs via dedicated serial communications lines. The Master is responsible for presenting information to
 the Cordell Hull Plant operators, accepting commands from the operators, logging alarm and status
 changes, and coordinating actions between the RTUs.

 The Master interacts with the plant operators via operator workstations. A workstation is based on a
 personal computer (PC) platform and operates with the MSE-Tetragenics WTV (WinTetraVision) Human

 Machine Interface (HMI) software package. From a workstation, an operator can display information in a
 logical manner and issue commands to perform various actions. The workstations communicate with the
 Master using an Ethernet network. Also, the Master itself contains the WTV software and can be used
 as a workstation. You can also configure the Master as a node on a local Ethernet network. Doing so
 allows any PC on the network that contains the WTV software to act as an operator workstation.

 The Master logs information to two printers. One printer logs all alarm and status changes. The other
 prints various reports produced by the Master. Either printer will take over the function of the other if the
 other printer fails. Both printers communicate with the Master using dedicated serial communications
 lines, and both are continuous feed impact printers so that any messages and reports are printed
 immediately.

 The Master logs alarm and status changes, operator commands, and other information to disk files for
 archival purposes. Also, the Master obtains MWHr information from several JEMSTAR meters located at
 both the Cordell Hull Plant and the Center Hill Plant.

 When the USACE replaced their JEM-2 meters, MSE-Tetragenics provided an upgrade to the MC3000
 Master System in 2004-2005 to allow polling of the new JEMSTAR meters using DNP 3.0 protocol via a
 Siemens RTU.

 2009: MSE-Tetragenics is providing a 2009 upgrade to the Cordell Hull/Center Hill Control System in
 conjunction with the Dale Hollow Project (see previous section). We are providing a new Cordell Hull
 MC3000 Master and a VME CPU and Chassis upgrade at the Center Hill plant. The existing RTU I/O
 equipment will remain in place. Temperature data will be acquired via Modbus protocol. Master
 communications with the RTUs will be via TCP/IP T1/Satellite with automatic switch over by the Master if
 the primary system fails. A block diagram of the pre 2009 SCADA system follows.

Army Corps of Engineers – Nashville District- Old-Hickory

Old Hickory / J. Percy Priest / Cheatham Plant
Control System. The Tennessee River system dams,
locks, and reservoirs were designed specifically to operate as
one system that meets many needs. Every day, the Tennessee
Valley Authority (TVA) balances these needs for water in
order to deliver the greatest value for the 8.5 million people
of the Tennessee Valley. Old Hickory Lock and Dam is
located in central Tennessee, approximately 25 miles
upstream from Nashville. The reservoir behind the dam is
Old Hickory Lake. The power plant is operated so as to use
as much of the water flow as possible for power production. J. Percy Priest Dam is in north central
Tennessee about 10 miles east of downtown Nashville. The reservoir behind the dam is Percy Priest Lake.
The dam has contributed significantly in reducing the frequency and severity of flooding in the
Cumberland Valley. Cheatham Reservoir Dam is located at mile marker 148.7 on the Cumberland River
in Dickson and Cheatham Counties. The USACE constructed and maintains Cheatham Lake Reservoir
and Dam.

 System: The Old Hickory MC3000 SCADA system is an MSE-Tetragenics Hydroelectric PCS. It
 consists of an MSE-Tetragenics MC3000 Master processor (dual configuration) located at the Old
 Hickory Hydroelectric Plant (Hendersonville, TN) and dedicated, intelligent RTUs located at the J. Percy
 Priest and Cheatham Hydroelectric Plants (located at Nashville, TN, and Charlotte, TN, respectively).

 There are three identical generators located in the Cheatham plant, each with a rated capacity of 14
 MW. Power is transmitted from the plant using a combination of three 69-KV transmission lines,
 interconnected to each other and the plant via power transformers and switchyard equipment. One
 generator located at the J. Percy Priest plant has a rated capacity of 33 MW. Power is transmitted from
 the plant using a single 69 KV transmission line.

 For both power plants, all plant equipment is monitored and controlled by the RTU at the respective
 plant. This RTU can start and stop the generators, control the MW output, control the exciter to adjust

 the generator voltage and MVARs, perform corrective actions in response to alarm conditions, and
 monitor various quantities associated with the plant. It can also operate independently of the Master
 processor to provide safe control of the plant if communication with the Master is lost. Another small
 RTU located in the Old Hickory power plant provides analog output signals and controls the Old Hickory
 Plant annunciator horn.

 The MC3000 operates on a standard PC running Windows operating system The Master communicates
 with the RTUs via dedicated serial communications lines. The Master is responsible for presenting
 information to the Old Hickory Plant operators, accepting commands from the operators, logging alarm
 and status changes, and coordinating actions between the RTUs.

 We configured the Old Hickory MC3000 Master as a dual Master system consisting of two MC3000
 Masters and an MSE-Tetragenics ISM. This configuration allows either of the MC3000s to be designated
 as the Primary, with the other being a "hot standby" (backup) unit ready to take over in case the Primary
 Master ceases operation for any reason.

 Operators interact with the MC3000 via operator workstations. Each operator workstation is based on a
 PC platform running Windows® and operates with the WTV HMI software package. From a workstation,
 operators can display information in a logical manner and issue commands to perform various actions.

 The Master writes information to two printers. One printer is used for all alarm and status change
 messages; the other printer is used for the various reports produced by the Master. Either printer will
 take over the function of the other if the other printer fails. Both printers are continuous feed impact
 printers so that any messages and reports are printed immediately rather than having to wait for a
 complete page to be printed.

 The MC3000 logs alarm and status changes, operator commands, and other information to disk files for
 archival purposes. The MC3000 obtains MWHR information from several JEMSTAR meters located at
 the Old Hickory, Cheatham, and J. Percy Priest plants. The JEM meter information is used to create
 various reports.

 When the USACE replaced their JEM II meters, MSE-Tetragenics provided an upgrade to the MC3000
 Master System in 2004-2005 to allow polling of the new JEMSTAR meters using DNP 3.0 protocol via a
 Siemens RTU.

 2009: In the 2009 upgrade to the Old Hickory, J. Percy Priest, Cheatham Plant Control System, MSE-
 Tetragenics is providing new Old Hickory dual MC3000 Masters and a VME CPU and Chassis upgrade
 at the J. Percy Priest and Cheatham plants. The existing RTU I/O equipment will remain in place.
 Temperature data will be acquired via Modbus protocol. Master communications with both RTUs will be
 via TCP/IP T1/Satellite with automatic switch over by the Master if the primary system fails.

 2. General Scope of Work – Contract Value:
 Initial Contract (1999): $57,520 To Date: $149,269
 Task: Automate the Laurel River hydroelectric plant to allow remote monitoring and control from the
 Wolf Creek Hydroelectric Plant and obtain MWHR data from JEM-2 Meters at both plants.

 History: The Laurel River and Wolf Creek Dams are projects in the development of the Cumberland
 River Basin. Both projects were designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and built by private
 contractors under the Corp's supervision. Each project was designed to control water resources in the
 Cumberland River basin and develop hydroelectric power.

 System: The Wolf Creek MC3000 SCADA system is a Hydroelectric PCS consisting of an MSE-
 Tetragenics MC3000 Master processor located at the Wolf Creek Hydroelectric Plant (Jamestown, KY)
 and a dedicated, intelligent RTU located at the Laurel River Hydroelectric Plant (Laurel County, KY).
 There is one generator located in the Laurel Power Plant and Dam, with a rated capacity of 68 MVA.
 The generator feeds through a 13.8 KV ACB to a single 78 MVA, 13.8/161 KV transformer bank.

 All Laurel River plant equipment is monitored and controlled by the one RTU. This RTU can start and
 stop the generators, control the MW output, control the exciter to adjust the generator voltage and
 MVARs, perform corrective actions in response to alarm conditions, and monitor various quantities
 associated with the plant. It can also operate independently of the Master processor to provide safe
 control of the Plant if communication with the Master is lost. Another small RTU located in the Wolf
 Creek power plant provides several analog output signals and controls the Wolf Creek plant annunciator
 horn. The Master communicates with the RTU via dedicated serial communications lines. The Master is
 responsible for presenting information to the Wolf Creek Operators, accepting commands from the
 operators, logging alarm and status changes.

 In January 2007, MSE-Tetragenics completed an upgrade of the plant control system for the Laurel
 River hydroelectric plant and the MC3000 Master Control System at the Wolf Creek Plant. To enable
 faster Ethernet satellite communications between the Master and the RTU at Laurel River, we upgraded
 the RTU to our VME-based G-Series system. For this cost-saving upgrade, we replaced only the RTU’s
 chassis and central processing unit, allowing all input/output cards and wiring to remain in place.

 The Master interacts with the plant operators via operator workstations based on a PC platform running

                                                                      SCADA Experience and Qualifications

 our WTV HMI software package. From a workstation, an operator can display information in a logical
 manner and issue commands to perform various actions. The workstations communicate with the
 Master using an Ethernet network. Also, the Master itself contains the WTV software and can be used
 as a workstation. Operators can also configure the Master as a node on a local Ethernet network. Doing
 so allows any PC on the network that contains the WTV software to act as an operator workstation.

 The Master logs information to two printers. One printer logs all alarm and status changes. The other
 prints various reports produced by the Master. Either printer will take over the function of the other if the
 other printer fails. Both printers communicate with the Master using dedicated serial communications
 lines, and both are continuous feed impact printers so that any messages and reports are printed
 immediately. The Master logs alarm and status changes, operator commands, and other information to
 disk files for archival purposes. Also, the Master obtains MWHr information from several JEMSTAR
 meters located at both the Wolf Creek Plant and the Laurel Plant. When the USACE replaced their JEM
 II meters, MSE-Tetragenics provided an upgrade to the MC3000 Master System in 2004-2005 to allow
 polling of the new JEMSTAR meters using DNP 3.0 protocol via a Siemens RTU.

 2007: MSE-Tetragenics provided an upgrade to this system in 2007. The new MC3000 Master
 communicates with the Laurel River Plant via satellite using the new efficient TCP/IP Block Protocol. The
 Laurel River RTU was upgraded to a VME-based CPU and chassis, allowing existing I/O equipment and
 wiring to remain in place. Using the MC3000-created daily log files and electronic virtual desktop printer
 allowed the elimination of the two serial printers.

PPL Montana Hydroelectric SCADA
Hydroelectric SCADA System. PPL Montana provides energy to
Montana and open market sales throughout the NW and owns and
operates 11 hydroelectric projects that have a total generating capacity
of 602 megawatts, as well as one reservoir. The facilities are located on
the Clark Fork, Flathead, Madison, and Missouri rivers and on West
Rosebud Creek. We have provided and continue to provide a variety of
equipment and systems to PPL Montana, a utility company based in
Allentown, PA, with offices in Montana. PPL Montana owns major
dams along the Missouri River and provides energy to Montana. The
sections below describe the complete system and shows information on
the various dams for which we provide equipment, systems, and
support. We have equipment in most PPL Montana dams. The Holter
Plant also incorporates OPC technology to communicate with proprietary third-part devices. The Ryan
plant was one of the first hydroelectric plants in the United States to use automation. The operators were
very skeptical about allowing computers to start/stop/synch generators. They were also worried that they
would lose their jobs due to automation. We solved this challenge with regular communication between
management, operators, and MSE-Tetragenics staff; extensive training and support for the operators; and
by the reliability of the system.

 the time the company was formed in 1912 until 1951, when the first thermal generating plant was built in
 Billings, Montana. Now owned by PPL Montana LLC, the hydro facilities continue to generate power.

 The System: In 1972, the Automation Department of the Montana Power Company (later known as
 MSE-Tetragenics), provided its first hydro-automation PCS for the Ryan Plant by automating six, 10 MW
 generators. The system provided unattended, reliable, and cost-effective power plant operation. Since
 then, MSE-Tetragenics has provided, installed, and maintained plant control systems in their
 hydroelectric plants. There are five plants on the Missouri river near Great Falls Montana, each with a
 VME-based PCS that is monitored and controlled from the dispatch center located at the Rainbow Plant
 by an MSE-Tetragenics MC3000W Master. This is a dual “hot” standby configuration with workstations
 connected via TCP/IP (refer to the block diagram on page 14). From the Master, operators monitor and
 control the generators, spill gates, and other major equipment located at the five power plants. The
 system provides complete control, since these plants are not staffed 24 hours a day. The system can

     start, synchronize, and stop generators as well as provide plant load and voltage control, VAR balance,
     and alarm control. All status changes, keyboard entry, and automatic messages are time-stamped to
     one millisecond for “sequence-of-events” recording. At the Morony and Cochrane plants, the system
     also controls the spill gates to manage the water during periods of high runoff. Within each plant, a color
     graphics HMI workstation and data logger directly communicate with the local PCS.

     The original Ryan and Morony automation systems date back to 1972 and 1973 when the first computer-
     based automation systems were installed. In 1989, these plants were upgraded with MSE-Tetragenics
     hardware and software. Beginning in 1989, major upgrades to each of the PPL plants took place, with
     upgrades to CPU hardware and software. In 2006, PPL began the next major upgrade to each of the 9
     plants with upgrades to CPU hardware and software – that upgrade is in process now. In addition, as the
     demand for more data and security increases, software enhancements are delivered to PPL as needed.

     The MSE-Tetragenics MC3000W Master at the Rainbow Plant generates customized automatic reports,
     emails reports (based on alarms), and logs every event, whether operator keyed, status change, or
     alarm activated, to a daily log file. Thompson Falls has two PCSs (one for each power plant) and an
     MC3000W Master. The Master is connected to PPL Montana's Wide Area Network (WAN) for remote
     access. This plant is controlled based on a pond level set point. The generators are a priority over the
     spill gates. This plant has all the functionality described previously.

     Kerr has one PCS, a downstream RTU, a Top-of-Dam RTU, and an MC3000W Master. Again, the
     Master is connected to the WAN for remote access. This plant is controlled primarily based on the river
     flow. The generators in this plant have very large vibration zones and the plant control module takes
     these zones into account as it determines the set points for each generator. This plant has all the
     functionality described previously. Hauser has a TG332-based RTU and an MC3000W Master. The
     Master connects to the WAN for remote access. Most of the data is collected via protective relays and
     meters using Modbus protocol. Critical data (such as breaker status) is brought through the RTU for one
     millisecond time stamping.

     The Holter Plant VME-based PCS can start, synchronize, and stop generators as well as provide plant
     load and voltage control, VAR balance, and alarm control. MSE-Tetragenics is currently in the process
     of upgrading this plant to our latest PCS. New features include Internet/Intranet viewing of the data,
     Ethernet polling of intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) using Modbus and DNP 3.0 protocols, on-line
     trending, and animated graphics support. The chart below shows the entire system point counts by

 to automate the Station 5 headgates as well to implement
 a pond level control scheme. The headgates, however,
 were unique in that they had internal water chambers and the gate elevation was based on the internal
 water level. Based on joint effort between RG&E and MSE-Tetragenics, we designed algorithms to
 control the weir tube, inlet, and outlet valves to maintain a given gate elevation. Once the gates were
 controllable, we implemented our standard Pond Level Control using both the generators and
 headgates. The priority is to load generators first and unload them once the headgates are closed. With
 this success, we added more plants to the system.

 The System: The RG&E system consists of dual-redundant MC3000 Master servers, one VME-based
 PCS, six TG332-based RTUs, one local human-machine interface (HMI) mounted in the Master cabinet,
 HMI workstations via the local area network (LAN) connection and remote dial-in, and log/report printers.
 In 2008, we upgraded the dual MC3000 to the latest revision of software and replaced the Station 5
 head-gate CPU with the G Series VME processor and software.
 Figure 6 on page 33 shows the complete system.


 The dual-redundant MC3000 Masters are two rack-mount PC-based servers connected to our Intelligent
 Switching Module (ISM). Both Masters communicate with the ISM via serial RS232 channels. The ISM

                                                                                        MSE-Tetragenics
                                                                      SCADA Experience and Qualifications

 provides primary/backup status, MC3000 run status, and ISM position. The ISM also provides electrical
 continuity for all the serial RS232 ports between the primary Master and the Polling channels. If the
 primary Master fails, the ISM automatically switches to the backup Master to continue operation. The
 MC3000 Masters have a network connection back to the LAN providing many purposes such as HMI,
 disk sharing, email, file manipulation, web access (view only), and sharing data between the primary
 Master and backup Master. The primary Master polls the plants using RS232 channels at various baud
 rates depending on the channel’s capability.

 The Crest Gate RTU is the most recent RTU added to the system. It supports all the hydraulic pump
 logic needed for 4 new crest-type gates. This logic includes gate drift, pump alternation, leak detection,
 and pump pressure monitoring.

 We established a communication link between the Station 26 RTU and the Court Street PCS. The link
 transfers data between both systems. The data needed in the Court Street PCS is used in the Pond
 Level Control module for total water calculations and allocation. The data needed in the RG&E system is
 spill gate information used in their load allocation.

 Our programmers wrote the control algorithms specifically for each gate and generator as well as
 various plant functions such as downstream siren control. Under normal operations, the system controls
 the gates and generators based on a Pond Level set point. Operators can also enter set points directly
 to generators and various gates. The sector gate is a floating gate requiring control of inlet and outlet
 valves to achieve a specified level. These valves can also be given individual setpoints in the semi-
 automatic mode. Originally it was thought that this gate could never be automated, however it works so
 well that a similar dam with the same type of gates have also been automated.

 Automatic Pond Level Control: With the ability to enter set points for both the generators and the
 headgates in place, implementing our standard Pond Control was the next step. The Pond Control
 module automatically calculates and implements set points to both the generators and headgates based
 on a specified pond level set point and changes in the pond level. To maximize generation, Pond Control
 automatically starts and stops the generators using our standard sequential and control software.

 Flexible Control: The SCADA system gives RG&E different ways to control their plants: operators can
 enter set points either to the generators and spill gates individually in a semi-automatic mode, or in the
 fully automatic Pond Level Control mode.

 2. General Scope of Work – Contract Value:
 Initial Contract (2004): $111,371 To Date: $120,887
 Task: Automate floating sector gates at the Court Street Dam with a SCADA PCS.

 History: The Court Street Dam is located in the City of Rochester just south of the Court Street Bridge.
 The dam, which is owned and operated by the New York State Canal Corporation, provides level control
 at the Genesee River and Erie Canal crossing approximately 3 miles up stream, and headwater for
 RG&E’s Station 26 hydroelectric generator.

 The Court Street Dam was built in the early 1900s. Though the dam has been refurbished in the past,
 the operation had never been upgraded to automatic controls or electronic implementation. The Dam
 consisted of four (4) floating sector gates that were manually repositioned using hand cranks on gate
 control and regulating devices (valves, props, and weir tubes). The one exception was that gates 3 & 4
 weir tubes had been motorized, but were still repositioned by local start-up controls. The water level and
 gate position indicating equipment consisted of cables that moved pointers on staff gauges located in
 the control houses. By referring to the position and level indicators and using the various valve hand
 cranks, operators raised and lowered the gates as necessary to maintain the river pond within a
 prescribed range.

 System: RG&E and New York State Canal Corporation (NYSCC) entered into an agreement to
 automate the Court Street Dam facility, referred collectively to as Owner. RG&E, serving as Project
 Manager, managed the automatic control system design and construction for all related modifications to
 the dam. RG&E selected MSE-Tetragenics as the SCADA contractor and Sear-Brown Group as the
 Project Engineer to design a system that was acceptable to NYSCC and to oversee construction.
 NYSCC was actively involved through completion of the project. This included system design, control
 system development, operations & management (O&M) personnel training, and system testing and
 acceptance. NYSCC personnel continue to operate and maintain the facility after installation of the
 automatic control system project.

 The Court Street Dam Automation Project (the Project) was divided into three Prime Contracts: 1)
 SCADA; 2) Motor Actuators; 3) General Construction. The SCADA portion is described below under
 Work Covered Under Contract Documents. The General Contractor (GenC) was responsible for
 installing and/or coordinating the installation of the SCADA system and motor actuators. The GenC
 supplied and installed the balance of the materials, equipment, and services not covered by the SCADA
 system and Motor Actuator contracts.
 This project automated the operation of the dam and made it possible to monitor and control the facility
 from onsite and remote control workstations (PCs). The supply and installation of permanent remote
 workstation and related work is not included as part of this project. An overview of the new equipment
 that was installed is as follows:

 Controls: A SCADA control system provided by MSE-Tetragenics operates, monitors, and collects data.
 This system communicates with the existing MSE-Tetragenics system located at Station 26 for data
 transfer. The data received through the Station 26 RTU is generator information needed for the Pond

                                                                                    MSE-Tetragenics
                                                                  SCADA Experience and Qualifications

 Level module. Also the data sent to Station 26 is spill gate information needed in the RG&E Station 5
 PCS.

 The SCADA system has two (2) central operator control stations (HMI workstations), one located in each
 of the control buildings. The SCADA system also has two (2) laptop computers fully configured with
 remote control capability via dial-in telephone lines. The system has the capacity to add a permanent
 remote control workstation in the future. The control system provides four (4) methods for operating the
 spill gates: 1) Manual (via manual hand-crank operation; 2) Local (via hardwired controls at each
 actuator) 3) Station (via on-site workstations); 4) Remote (via off-site workstations/laptops). The SCADA
 system workstations provide three (3) basic modes of control: 1) Discrete (starting/stopping of individual
 devices); 2) Semi-automatic (gate set point control); 3) Automatic (operate gates to maintain a river level
 set point). Spill warning sirens and alarm control routines are incorporated into the system.

 The control system operates the dam by modulating the valves and props through the new actuators to
 regulate individual gate internal water chambers. This controls the “floating” level of the gate(s). SCADA
 control and monitoring of the actuators is performed through serial communication connections via
 RS485 between the SCADA microprocessor and the actuators. New electronic level and position
 detection transducers are incorporated into the control system for status, alarm, control, and feedback
 information.

 Electrical: The electrical service to the dam was upgraded to accommodate simultaneous operation of all
 spill gates and the new control equipment. A second power feed or equal rating and automatic throw-
 over switch was added to increase reliability of the control system. In addition, a new Uninterruptible
 Power Supply (UPS) system was added to maintain the power requirements of the new control system
 for a period of 120 minutes.

 Miscellaneous Subsystems: New systems installed for site protection and enhanced operation include a
 security and fire detection system, spill warning siren system, facility enunciator/alarm system, level
 display panels, automatic electric service transfer switch, and a UPS. These subsystems interface to the
 control system.

 Work Covered by Contract Documents: SCADA System: Supply of a complete SCADA including:
 hardware, software, system design and design documentation, system assembly, algorithm
 development, and system configuration, factory acceptance testing, O&M manuals, O&M personnel
 training, equipment delivery, and field testing and startup services. The SCADA system monitors and
 controls (both automatic and discrete/set point modes) the operation of four (4) spill gates and
 appurtenant equipment and systems.

 The control system design requires that the motor actuators communicate with the SCADA system via
 serial communications (Modbus). Therefore, as part of their respective work scopes, it was required that
 MSE-Tetragenics and the Motor Actuator Supplier work directly to ensure protocol compatibility so that
 the control system supplied was fully functional as specified. As part of that working relationship, the
 Motor Actuator Supplier provided three (3) actuators to MSE-Tetragenics to configure and test.

 The GenC contracted with an I&C company to supply all specified instruments, instrument calibrations,
 system checkout, system startup, debugging and SCADA commissioning test, installation oversight
 (GenC installation support) and training of NYSCC personnel on the instrumentation system. This
 included ensuring that instrument model numbers specified in the Instrument and Controls I/O and
 Device list performed the intended function. The I&C company also worked directly with MSE-
 Tetragenics during configuration of the system to develop analog scaling, elevation offsets, normal and
 alarm status of digital inputs, and review/provide comments to the I/O list. The Master I/O list was
 developed and maintained by the MSE-Tetragenics.


 Execution: SCADA Control System: One (1) complete SCADA System was provided by MSE-
 Tetragenics. The list below shows the hardware comprising the SCADA control system. The GenC’s
 proposal included the labor, equipment, and materials necessary to receive, unload, transport, install (as

Lewis County Public Utility District (PUD)
Cowlitz Falls Plant Control System. The Cowlitz Falls Project is a 70-megawatt hydroelectric
dam constructed in the early 1990s. The dam and power generation facility were completed in 1994. The
dam is 140 feet high and spans approximately 700 feet across the Cowlitz River. The reservoir behind the
dam has a surface area of approximately 610 acres. The Cowlitz Falls Project is built in a narrow
constricted portion of the Cowlitz River immediately upstream from Tacoma Power’s Riffe Reservoir in
eastern Lewis County. Situated a short distance below the confluence with the Cispus River, the dam
operates in a "run-of-the-river" mode, using water from the Cowlitz and Cispus Rivers. The Cowlitz Falls
Project produces on average 260,000 megawatt hours (Mwhrs) annually or approximately one-third (1/3)
of the annual needs of Lewis County PUD. The Lewis County PUD is owner of the Project, while the
Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has purchased the annual output of the Project under a long-term
contract.

 our newest G-Series PCS.

 The System: The SCADA system consists of an MC3000 SCADA Master, G Series PCS, and TG 2000
 Series RTUs. The SCADA Master operates the plant, maintains the pond within its operating range, and
 draws down the reservoir in the event of a flood upstream at the town of Randle, WA. We developed
 complex algorithms to verify data and respond accordingly to that data. To obtain and verify data, several
 protocols are used to communicate with other intelligent devices. One protocol communicates with a flow
 sensing unit near the town of Randle. This direct line informs the Master if a flood is occurring. The flow
 data obtained from the Randle flow gauge must be verified, so another link accesses the United States
 Geological Survey (USGS). The data obtained from the USGS includes the Randle reading, as well as
 readings further upstream. The Master controls the generators and spillways, and maximizes generation
 in order to maintain the pond level. Once generation is at capacity, the Master opens spillways in a priority
 order to pass any additional water. The plant has two 35 MW generators, for a total capacity of 70 MW,

 2. General Scope of Work – Contract Value:
 Initial Contract (1987): $466,822 To Date: $775,500
 Task: Monitor and control Sidney A. Murray Jr. Hydroelectric Plant and handle large volumes of input
 and output controls, sense water levels, monitor and control flow, and monitor essential parameters.

 History: Built to service the electrical power needs of Vidalia, Louisiana, the Sidney A. Murray Jr.
 Hydroelectric Plant is the largest low-head generating plant in the United States. The plant contains
 eight 24 megawatt (MW) generators producing a total of 192 MW. Aware of plant and operator needs,
 MSE-Tetragenics provided a distributed control system comprised of powerful PCSs and Masters to
 automate the plant. The system encompasses over 4000 combined input/output points.

 The System: In 1990, MSE-Tetragenics linked nine, 3-bay PCSs in a star configuration to an MC300
 Series Master. One PCS monitors plant common functions and the other eight individually monitor each
 generator.

 Upgraded in 1999/2000, each PCS now links to an MC3000 Master. An RTU at the inter-tie substation in
 Vidalia monitors power flow information for that location. Each generator PCS can operate
 independently without the MC3000 Master to maintain current setpoints and take action to protect the
 generator if an alarm condition occurs.

 Operators monitor and control the plant from graphic workstations connected to the MC3000 Master via
 an Ethernet LAN. From the workstations, operators can stop and start generators with a single
 command, and specify setpoints to control MW and MVar loading. They can also operate individual
 devices from the workstations.

 The plant receives a daily water flow allocation from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The
 MC3000 Master performs water optimization computations to maximize MW production for the current
 available head water and tail water, and maintains the assigned water flow. It also calculates the
 optimum selection of generators, starts and/or stops generators as necessary, and assigns MW
 allocations to the running generators.

 and three chassis’s in Cabinet No. 2 to hold the CPU and I/O cards. We provided an efficient, cost
 effective software and hardware upgrade that used most of the original equipment. New Martinsville has
 been our customer since 1987.
 System: The new system is a TG332-based PCS with no RTUs; we upgraded the existing MSE-
 Tetragenics VME-based system in 2002. The system uses WTV16s and DOS-based editors. Our scope
 of work involved removing the entire Model 2112 chassis, which occupied the top portion of Cabinet No.
 2. Included in the removal were the outdated VME-based Force 1-D CPU, the Serial Input/Output (SIO)
 expansion card, all memory boards, the bus buffer board/cable chassis connections, and all the existing
 power supplies serving the three MSE-Tetragenics chassis’s located in this cabinet. The two existing
 Model 2121 Chassis’s remained in the cabinet. To provide a connection between them, we mounted a
 new bus buffer board and cable assembly on the backplanes of the two chassis. We upgraded the PCS
 from a VME Force Central Processing Unit (CPU) to our TG332 CPU board featuring the Motorola
 MC68332 microcontroller. This CPU and companion daughter memory board replaced the Force CPU
 and was mounted in the existing lower (second) Model 2121 chassis. The TG332 CPU, which has a 20
 MHz, 32 bit processor, was designed to interface into our 2000 Series bus; therefore, it simply plugged
 into this chassis. The daughter board provided an additional 1MB of memory and filled the slot next to
 the CPU. The CPU has five RS-232 communications ports, eliminating the need for an SIO expansion
 board. The communication port configuration is now:

         Port     Description
         A        Local Display (WTV)
         1        Alarm Printer (Serial), Debug/Download
         2        Local Display (WTV) and Edit Station with Reports Printer (Parallel)
         3        Army Corps Display (VT100 Terminal)
         4        Army Corps Display (VT100 Terminal)

 Also mounted in the lower Model 2121 chassis was the existing analog input board and a new MSE-

                                                                      SCADA Experience and Qualifications

 Tetragenics 2000 series Analog-to-Digital (A/D) converter board that ties the analog points into the
 TG332 CPU. This new A/D board coordinated the database and system features to provide better
 resolution in converting the analog signals to digital engineering values. For example, over a possible
 resolution of +/-10 volts, a 4-20 mA input signal resolution increased to approximately -6 to +10 volts
 from the previous resolution of about +1 to +5 volts. This assumes an option C (0-20 mA) analog input
 board.

 The five existing separate power supplies were replaced by one 129 Vdc power supply to provide +5 Vdc
 to each remaining Model 2121 chassis and +/- 15 Vdc to the lower chassis containing the Analog A/D
 Converter and Analog Input cards. The new equipment no longer required the +/- 12 Vdc output provided
 for the existing Model 2112 Chassis VME bus, although the new power supply had that output available.

 Part of the space in the cabinet left by removing the existing Model 2112 VME / TG Bus chassis was
 occupied by an MSE-Tetragenics Model 2807 seven-slot, modem mounting panel. The existing PCS
 short-haul modems, used for communications to the display devices and printers, were mounted on this
 panel to help “clean up” the hardware installation inside the cabinet. Once the above changes were
 made, there were four remaining slots in the top Model 2121 Chassis and five remaining slots in the
 bottom Model 2121 chassis for future expansion of the system.

 Since the original installation in 1987/1988, we have standardized, numbered, and documented our
 interconnection hoods. As a part of this upgrade, we provided new standard modular hoods and RJ-45
 terminated CAT-5 cable to connect the PCS to the short-haul modems that communicate with peripheral
 devices (WTVs, VT-100s, and printers). We also upgraded connection hoods and cables between the
 peripheral devices and their short-haul modems. The existing short-haul modems and wiring between
 them remained in place.

 2. General Scope of Work – Contract Value:
 Initial Contract: $6,124,597 To Date: $8,535,393
 Task: Our contract with the California Department of Water Resources was a multimillion-dollar project to
 supply more than 300 RTUs to help control one of the world's largest agricultural and municipal water
 transportation systems.

 History: The California State Water Project is the nation’s largest state-built water and power
 development and distribution system with 32 major storage facilities (including 20 primary lakes and
 reservoirs), 17 pumping plants, 5 hydroelectric power plants, 3 pump-generating plants, and more than
 660 miles of canals, tunnels and siphons.

 System: The California Aqueduct transports most of the California State Water Project’s water. Our
 RTUs (also referred to as PLCs) remotely control and monitor pumping stations and aqueduct control
 structures throughout the state of California, improving the efficiency of the water system's operations.
 From the control center, operators can access data from any RTU, and the information is displayed in
 easy-to-read charts and graphs.

 The 300+ remote terminal units (RTUs) that were assembled, tested, and shipped accounted for the
 majority of equipment. The total input/output supported exceeds 30,000 points. Along with the RTUs,
 over 10 graphical operator interface workstation platforms were configured and shipped to communicate
 with plant RTUs. Operators can view data and operate the plant from a single location.

 Control System software was developed for each RTU platform depending on site requirements and
 operational parameters. Every RTU program was developed to support the following advanced
 monitoring and control features:

    Real-Time I/O processing with alarms and events time stamped to the millisecond
    Sequence of Events processing to store point transitions in a memory queue until the data is
     requested.
    Report by exception data exchange
    Secure protocol communications with check-before-execute messages to prevent un-commanded
     controls
    Unique specialized sequential control strategies
    Local operator interface terminal port
    System wide time synchronization
    Protocol support to retrieve data via a communications port from power meters, flow meters, and

                                                                                          MSE-Tetragenics
                                                                        SCADA Experience and Qualifications

       other intelligent electronic devices.

 Specialized control strategies were developed in the RTU databases to perform plant functions as
 required at the different locations. Some of the control functions are listed below:

      Bring a generation unit online
      Regulate a reservoir level
      Control aqueduct water flow
      Startup a pumping plant
      Plant monitoring
      Event based alarm control

 The original contract mandated an aggressive delivery schedule of material and system installation
 deadlines beginning in June 1990 and continuing through late 1993. We were able to keep pace and
 meet the scheduled requirements. We performed major updates and additions to the project in 1994, and
 in 2004 we developed and implemented RTU system enhancements.

 Since 2003 we have renewed two 3-year maintenance contracts with DWR. These provide hardware
 support, system troubleshooting, and new development.

 In 2007, MSE-Tetragenics and DWR completed a two week site acceptance test on our new VME RTU
 platform. Following an extensive test plan, we proved the functionality of the new VME G-Series Central
 Processing Unit (CPU) and software platform. Once completed, the tests showed that our equipment and
 software can provide a long-term cost savings solution to meet both DWR’s immediate and evolving
 control operation needs for new and existing Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) installations. The RTU
 performance test is best summarized by a single comment from a tester: “It would take three separate
 devices to get the same functionality provided by the MSE-Tetragenics G-Series RTU.” The MSE-
 Tetragenics system provides a protocol translator/data concentrator, sequence-of-events recorder, and a
 plant logic controller in one unit — a PLC-based system would require three devices.

 To further validate the new G-Series RTU platform, DWR personnel upgraded an existing RTU and have
 been field testing the new system. The system went live on October 18, 2007, and no major difficulties
 have been reported.

 Task:        Monitor and control microwave stations at remote sites,
              often subject to extreme climate changes.
 History:     In the 1980s, Tetragenics provided a Communications Monitoring and Control System
              for MPC (now Northwestern Energy) that consisted of MC3000 Series Masters and
              RTUs. The system monitored and controlled the company’s analog and digital remote
              microwave sites, 2-way radio systems, and emergency generators at the sites. In 1998, we
              upgraded the system to include MC3000 Series Masters and RTUs linked over a
              LAN/WAN.
 System:      The system contains two MC3000 separate Masters on a WAN/LAN (Wide Area
              Network/Local Area Network). One Master is on the Analog (microwave) system and the
              other is on the Digital system. (Refer to the diagram on the next page.) The Analog
              Master communicates with over 75 remote sites and functions with analog (voltage
              inputs), digital (status points), and control features. The Digital Master communications
              with over 40 sites performing similar functions as those listed for the Analog Master, but
              also carries transmission line protective relaying using digital channel banks. The
              Tetragenics RTUs at each site monitor and report on the station's situation, functions, and
              conditions. The RTU reports on the following:
                  • More than 11 different types of microwave radios (analog and digital) and 2 way
                     radio signals
                  • Generator status
                  • Fuel levels
                  • Environmental conditions at the site (inside and outside)
                  • Station power (AC or DC)
                  • Tower lights.

              The RTUs transmit the information to the appropriate Master. The Master relays it to
              operators at a main operation center and to various terminals connected to the system.
              From the main center, operators see site and generator conditions at a glance. If
              necessary, they can send someone to a site (or not if the climate conditions are extreme).
              In some cases, operators can correct problems themselves using the Masters link to the
              RTU.
              Each RTU is an intelligent device with a built in microprocessor that allows stand-alone
              (out of touch with the Master) control and monitoring. The RTUs continue to store site
              information when communication is lost. When communication is restored, the RTUs
              forward the information to the Master.
              A Model 31 Alarm Annunciator augments the security of the system by providing surge
              protection, communications switching, and alarm annunciation capabilities.

 Contact:     Laura Cook, NorthWestern Energy, Butte, MT, 406-497-4145,
              Laura.Cook@Northwestern.com
 Task:        Provide Front End Processor (FEP) for ESCA EMS Management system with over 200
              RTUs for substation monitor and control.
 History:     In the 1980s, Tetragenics provided a Substation Monitoring and Control System for MPC
              (now Northwestern Energy) that consisted of Dual MC3000 Series FEP and RTUs. The
              system monitored and controlled the company’s spread throughout the state of Montana.
              Upgrades have been provided over the years, as new technologies were available as well
              as the Customer needs changed. This includes for example, RTUs polled over a
              LAN/WAN.
 System:      The system contains a dual “hot-standby” MC3000 FEP on a WAN/LAN (Wide Area
              Network/Local Area Network). The MC3000 FEP polls the RTUs via several mediums
              of communications and relays the data to an ESCA Energy Management System.
              Each RTU is an intelligent microprocessor based device that allows stand-alone (out of
              touch with the Master) control and monitoring. The RTUs continue to store site
              information when communication is lost. When communication is restored, the RTUs
              forward the information to the Master.

Water System Improvements – Butte Silver Bow Water Department
 Project:     Butte Silver Bow Water System Improvements
 Customer:    Butte, MT, Butte-Silver Bow County
 Contact:     Jean Pentecost Phone: (406) 497-6530, jpentecost@co.silverbow.mt.us
 System:      Butte Silver Bow’s existing SCADA system, controlling both the municipal and
              industrial water systems, was covered by a maintenance agreement. Under this
              agreement, MSE was to service any failures, logic changes, or HMI changes. MSE
              supported design, construction oversight, and start up of water utility improvements for
              the city-county of Butte Silver Bow. These system improvements helped bring the
              county’s municipal water system to within (and exceeding) required state and federal
              compliance requirements. MSE designs also referenced all safe drinking water
              recommended standards and practices.

              The upgrade included design, development, and implementation of a SCADA system that
              included over a dozen remote sites communicating back to the central water treatment
              facility control room. We provided various pump lift station electrical designs, including
              start up, training, and documentation. To achieve this, we performed the following I&C
              and electrical related tasks:

              (1) An FMT® HMI upgrade included a windows-based software package that could
              control the Bighole and Moulton water treatment plants. All the points were converted to
              the new system and new operator screens created; the operator computers were
              networked together providing additional interfaces; the existing communications link
              between plants was revamped; and Modicon® PLCs were installed at each location
              creating a dial up configuration to exchange data continuously (this method proved to be
              faster and more reliable than the previous radio polling).

              (2) A new Modicon® PLC control system was incorporated into the Ramsay pump
              station. This system controlled the supply of industrial water from Silver Lake to ASiMi
              (Silicon Plant) and Montana Resources. This system was tied to the Bighole water
              treatment plant via a new radio link and allowed operators to enter flow set points from
              their FMT® HMI console. The logic for this site included flow control, constant and
              variable speed pump control, and various alarm condition reporting.

              (3) New Modicon® PLC controllers were programmed and installed at Silver Lake and
              Myers Dam. Both these sites had new radio links back to the Bighole water treatment
              plant. Operators could view alarms and set parameters for flow and level control via the
              FMT® HMI screens created for these sites.

Water System Improvements – City of Hamilton
 Project:     Water System Improvements
 Customer:    City of Hamilton, Montana
 Contact:     Lorin Lowry Phone : (406) 363-2101
 System:      Tetragenics programmed a new Opto-22® PLC and installed it at the Weber booster
              station. This new controller was programmed to start and stop pumps based on the
              current flow and discharge water pressure provided to a residential area. The logic
              incorporated several inputs and timing parameters to properly control and sequence the
              starting of the pumps. Local visual alarms and a discharge pressure chart recorder were
              outputs from the controller.



Water System Improvements – Emerald Bio
 Project:     Water System Improvements
 Customer:    Emerald Bio (Formerly Mycotech - providing hazardous waste treatments)
 Contact:     Gary Chatriand Phone: (406) 782-2386
 System:      For Mycotech, Tetragenics integrated an Opto-22 PLC and Opto Display® HMI into an
              existing control system for process control. The manufacturing process produced a
              patented product that was very sensitive to the environmental conditions being controlled
              during the different process stages. Because different stages in the process require
              different set points for humidity, air velocity, and pressure, the original system did not
              provide the necessary level of integration. The basis for the project was to provide one
              central workstation that could be used to monitor and control the environmental
              parameters of each stage. The new PLC and HMI allowed value trending, data archiving,
              and set point changes to be made by operators on one device. A protocol driver in the
              PLC was written to read and write data between separate 3rd party integrated PID
              controllers and the new HMI.

 Customer:    City of Havre, Montana
 Contact:     Jeff Jensen Phone : (406) 265-5215 havrewtp@mtintouch.net
 System:      For the City of Havre, Tetragenics incorporated an Opto-22 PC-based controller and
              Opto Display® HMI for pump and tank level control at the treatment plant. The new
              automatic system had to maintain adequate water pressure for residential and fire use. We
              installed remote I/O modules at three remote storage sites and two pump sites. The data
              from each site is polled over radio links provided with the control system and reported
              back to the treatment plant. From the HMI at the treatment plant, operators can change
              set points, view current data, and control the remote pumps.

Water System Improvements – City of Culbertson
 Project:     Water System Improvements
 Customer:    City of Culbertson, Montana
 Contact:     Steve Moore Phone : (406) 787-5271
 System:      The Tetragenics project with the City of Culbertson was to replace the existing PLC
              control system at the water treatment plant. The scope of the project involved
              implementing a Modicon® PLC, a WonderWare® HMI, and an auto-dialer at the plant.
              We created control logic to control the filtering process on two existing filter units while
              maintaining a tank level set point. The control logic included several key processes and
              filtering sequences to deliver treated water to the city. We added an HMI for operator
              control, value trending, and data archiving. The plant was programmed to run
              automatically and used an auto-dialer to alert personnel if there was a problem.

Water System Improvements – East Glacier
 Project:     Water System Improvements
 Customer:    East Glacier, Montana
 System:      Tetragenics installed Modicon® PLCs at a pumping facility in East Glacier to control the
              water level in the Rising Sun remote tank. A new radio link for communications between
              the pump station and the tank was also installed. Because there was no power at the tank,
              a solar power system at the tank to power the control system equipment was
              implemented. Control logic to automatically cycles the pumps based on the tank level.

 Contact:     Dick Hoehne Phone: (406) 859-3455 pworks@blackfoot.net
 System:      MSE upgraded the existing SCADA system for the town of Philipsburg. The new system
              consists of five PLCs: four slaves and one master. The new system consists of the
              following features.
               A master Modicon® PLC and radio located at the town shop. This unit polls the remote
                sites and posts the data locally to a new RSView® HMI. The HMI allows operators to
                monitor system parameters, archive and trend data, and acts as a call out dialer for
                failures or alarms within the water system. An Allen-Bradley PanelView® Operator
                Interface Terminal (OIT) was installed at local sites.
               One slave located at the Fred Burr water storage tank and chlorinator controls tank
                levels and monitors key water system parameters such as turbidity, pH, temp, chlorine
                residuals, and overflow alarms.
               One slave located at the metal water tank monitors tank water level.
               One slave located at the pressure reducing valve location monitors and controls water
                system distribution pressure. The slave also provides a time schedule program to make
                sure that both water tanks get equal usage during the winter months.
               One slave at the Montana Silver Springs (MSS) Booster Pump Station controls
                pumping the water from the MSS to the Fred Burr tank. The MSS water is used to
                augment the surface water being input into the Fred Burr tank. This system also
                controls and monitors chlorine residuals and pump station flows.

              monitors and controls the level of drinking water stored in a new elevated storage tank.
              The tank reports its level to two well houses, and the Rugid Computer® RTUs at the well
              houses start and stop automatically depending on operator start and stop set points. The
              SCADA system communicates using licensed free spread spectrum radios. There is one
              master radio and three slave sites on this system. The new system also monitors plant
              statuses for the upgraded wastewater treatment plant. All water and wastewater system
              parameters are posted to this site from the master RTU and current data is archived and
              viewed with an NI Lookout® HMI personal computer. With this configuration, an
              operator can dial into the system remotely from home or any other location and view the
              water and wastewater system parameters. The treatment plant also has an automatic
              telephone dialer to call out operators in case of failures or alarms.

Water Treatment Plant Control System Upgrade – Hawthorne Army Depot
 Project:     Water Treatment Plant Control System Upgrade
 Customer:    Hawthorne Army Depot, Hawthorne, Nevada
 Contact:     Dave Mussleman, Phone: (755) 945-1211
 System:      The Hawthorne Water Treatment Plant Control upgrade project was specified to
              modernize the existing manual operations of Hawthorn’s existing water treatment plant
              facility. The goals were to automate the plant operations, double the water treatment
              throughput capacity, and reduce the risk of environmental spills. For this project, MSE
              installed a modern fieldbus network of instruments and mechanical equipment, and tied
              the network into an Allen-Bradley® PLC with a WonderWare® HMI as a front end. This
              project also included Visual Basic programming to provide a user interface with the
              chemical feed pumps and the HMI software. We provided the engineering design,
              programming, construction, commissioning, training, and documentation for this project.



Mine Internet Monitoring System – Calliopi Mine

 Project:     Calliopi Mine Internet Monitoring System
 Customer:    Calliopi Mine (Montana)
 Contact:     Roger Wilmoth (513) 569-7509
 System:      This project was designed to poll and warehouse remote sampling data from the Calliopi
              Mine site automatically and send it to one location. We linked the remote monitoring
              sites to a PC at the MSE testing facility in Butte, Montana, via a cellular modem
              connection. The dedicated PC polls data from the remote sites. We also included the
              technology to demonstrate remote site monitoring using two web cameras. The cameras
              download images to the PC at MSE. The images and data can be viewed via the Internet
              from the dedicated PC.
