Section 30 is the part of the Scotland Act 1998 which governs how Scotland must apply to the UK government to seek permission to pass a law which would allow an independence referendum to take place.

Article 50 is the section of the Lisbon Treaty which governs how a country can leave the European Union.

The two should not be confused.
