Due to water scarce in Fujairah, several small dams and sand barriers were built to store water, prevent occasional flooding damage as well powering underground water beds. These water reservoirs are oversized 90% of the time. In this paper, a smart grid of multi micro hydro system is proposed to satisfy water and electricity demand for scattered mountainous villages in an optimal manner, by channeling water into needed reservoirs. Sustainability is to be achieved with micro hydro and wind/solar hybrid systems which have been analyzed on aspects, such as environment, solar and wind regimes, existing mountainous reservoirs and dams, seawater desalination, as well as economic feasibility. This would in effect, reduce the dependency on federal electricity supply for Fujairah and surroundings, where notably a large number of residential and industrial installations are still in shortage of electricity.rnThis work can be implemented as a future project. Firstly, in order to analyse the wind regime in Fujarirah area, a pilot hybrid solar-wind turbine, is used to calculate the daily, monthly and annually average generated electrical power. This set-up maybe reused in the field again in same region or other regions. Similarly, it is used to analyse the solar insolation in Fujairah area around mountainous areas. Thus, a feasibility study is to be conducted for the possibility of installing the proposed micro-hydro systems with accessory installations, such as solar-wind, magnetic generator, charging batteries, etc. as well as setting up a grid connection with this hybrid system.

Blanca Margarita Guerrero Haber has completed his Master Degree by Research at the age of 44 years from Oscar Lucero Moya University of Holguin,in Applied Mathematic and Information Technology for Management.She is actually Auxiliar Professor and Researcher at Polithecnic High School of Lunda Sul in Angola, where concentrates her research objectives about both industrial automation improvement and process simulation and supervision by using SCADA softwares, all of them related to territory industries: water plant, hidro power plant and diamond industry. In past she worked more than 20 years at Niquel Plant ¨Ernesto Che Guevara¨ as Automatic Control Engineer and Network Manager, and most of her tasks were dedicated to applied research for development of Industrial Automation, SCADA projects and industrial networks. She has published several papers about her researchs in International Congresses and reputed journals.
This work shows a SCADA project for educational purposes, using the SCADA Citect Software in the 2016 version. Several sections of the process of the Chicapa 1 Hydroelectric Power Plant are included, as well as the configuration of graphic screens, variables, measurements and regulation loops, events, alarms, historical records, communication with different Input and Output devices, as well as examples of programing functions for making reports and other calculations that are made using the internal functions of the SCADA Citect software. In addition, it includes some functions for the calculation of working time of technological equipment and monthly elaboration of a file for data exporting, which is a very useful functionality in the industries for the accomplishment of the programmed periodic maintenance. All of this gives a considerable saving of time in learning of both process operation and automation of Hydroelectric Central by students. Besides, it allows the rapid development of projects using the configuration platform of Citect SCADA 2016, new version with functionality enhancements and innovations.
