2. The overall structure of the system. Modularity (TSubSYS, TModule)

The root, from which we construct the whole system is the object of TSYS. The root contains a subsystem (TSubSYS). Subsystems can be: the ordinary and modular. The difference between the modular subsystems is clearly shown in Fig. 1. Thus, the modular subsystems necessarily contain a list of modular structures (TModule), such as subsystem TArchiveS contain modular objects TTypeArchivator. At the same time, the normal subsystem does not contain such objects. For example TSecurity subsystem (Figure 2).

In the process of initializing the root (TSYS) the global variable SYS is defined. The variable SYS can be used for direct access to the root of the system from any of its node. Initialization of the root is performed only one time from the main calling function. After starting the management is captured by the system object till stop. The root object concentrate all system functions of the OpenSCADA system.

Extension of the root object (TSYS) is the object TMess, which performs the functions of service of the flow of system messages. The object is accessible through the global variable Mess, which is initialized by the root of the system. The object contains the functions of encoding, decoding, and localization of messages.

In the subsystems (TSubSYS) the functions typical for each subsystem individually with the general access for all subsystems are carried out through the object TSubSYS. Modular subsystem is able to extend its functionality by means of modules. For this purpose, modular subsystem provides access to the modules of its type in the form of modular objects.

Module is the component of the modular subsystem. In general, for all modules and subsystems, the module provides information about itself, its origin and export functions. Individual module implements the functionality according to its own needs.
