Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems (SCADA) are often used in some important industry sectors, such as production and distribution of electricity, transport management, etc. The purpose of this paper is to establish models of SCADA system, DISIM that is incorporated into the Central Dispatching Station of Sofia Metropolitan. Its functions are related to remote visualization and management of the structures and devices in both directions - Trains operation (DISIM-V) and Power transmission system (DISIM-Å). The suggested structural models and mathematical description are used as a basis for realization of a simulator of both SCADA systems

Keywords: SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems); metropolitan; modeling
