Abstract—This paper points out controlling to the generator of power station, collecting the required information of the station, analyzing the communication metrics of the SCADA system and predicting the electricity production without hydrological events based on the historical data under the IoT-based SCADA system. SCADA system based on the IoT is the modernization of the SCADA system for hydropower station to get the required information and to conduct the power station for balancing with the national grid in a timely manner. This system supports the varieties of the information of the station such as alarm system, data monitoring and control system, data logging and generated capacity, and so on. Moreover, the performance of the IoT-based SCADA system such as communication metrics is analyzed by using the data packet analyzer and WiFi analyzer. In addition, historical data (generated electricity) is used to analyze and detect the circumstance of the production of hydropower stations and to predict the production for coming year by using the time series analysis. In this research, the actual historical data of the Yeywa hydropower station which is collected by on-ground recording is used for statistical analysis of generated capacity.
