Sumario: This paper proposes a new paradigm related to electrical power systems, known as Microgrids, with emphasis on those systems that must operate in isolated communities. It redefines the concept of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) commonly used in electrical systems, in this case renamed Social SCADA. Also qualitatively analyzed is its contribution to the resilience of the system, which means to increase its flexibility and adaptability to external and internal disturbances. As a case study, the implementation of Social SCADA in Huatacondo, a small town in northern Chile, is documented. We show some results obtained with the operation of the microgrid, such as the decrease of operating costs, with the delivery of electricity and water. As important contribution discusses the management of a power system that evolves around community participation to increase its sustainability, understood as a dynamic feature, characteristic of the evolution of the system.
