StationScout – Testing your SAS through the whole lifecycle

IEC 61850 Substation Automation System testing

Testing automation, control, and SCADA communication in IEC 61850 Substation Automation System (SAS) is as time consuming as testing the protection – or often even more. StationScout simplifies the testing and reduces the required effort significantly.

With its powerful functions, StationScout is a specialist for the whole lifecycle of a SAS – from engineering to continuous maintenance. The clear status overview provides ideal support for commissioning and maintenance engineers during the different tasks in Substation Automation Systems utilizing IEC 61850.

Key features:

Status overview: StationScout provides a clear overview of the substation, visualizing the communication according to IEC 61850 in SCL files, values and states in the substation.

Signal tracing: The communication diagram of StationScout allows for signal tracing, from the overview down to the detailed communication message attributes.

Automated testing:
StationScout is able to re-use predefined test plans for an automated testing procedure.

Cyber security: The dedicated hardware of StationScout ensures cyber secure operation within the substation communication network.

Simulation: The powerful simulation features of StationScout simplify testing and commissioning. Missing IEDs and IOs can also be simulated.

Defining own names: IEC 61850 abbreviations are quite cryptic. Defining of own names in StationScout allows for comfortable asset handling.

Nytt från OMICRON! CMC 430, en kompakt test enhet.

CMC 430 med bl.a. 3*12,5A , 1*37,5A + 6*150V, utökar den välkända familjen CMC som skapades för mer än 25 år sedan .

CMC 430 är den lättaste test setet i världen 8,7Kg

Men ändå mycket kompakt 280*150*380 mm, och med en extremt noggrann kalibrator.

Dessutom kan vi komplettera CMC 430 med Wi-Fi adapter, som då kan användas till PC eller surfplatta. Redan mycket omtyckt !

Vidare också en utmärkt transportbox som kan användas som bord vid testningar.

Viktigt är också det välkända PC programmet med alla sina olika mjukvaruvarianter.

Why partial discharge testing makes good sense

Partial discharge (PD) phenomena are in many cases the preliminary stage of a complete breakdown of the electrical insulation in high-voltage assets, which can lead to unplanned outages, high repair or replacement costs and lost production.

To prevent such unexpected occurrences, regular PD testing has proven to be a reliable diagnostic method for detecting failures in the insulation system of electrical assets before major damage or a breakdown occurs.

Our new white paper aims to familiarize you with the basics of partial discharge. Find out about the causes and consequences, as well as how it is measured and which criteria are important for selecting a PD measurement device.

Enjoy reading and watch out for our next paper of the month!

Electrical interferences in SFRA measurements

Since the introduction of the IEC 60076-18 (Edition 1.0) standard in 2012, the Sweep Frequency Response Analysis (SFRA) method has become one of the most common electrical tests for condition diagnosis of power transformers. It provides comprehensive information about the mechanical and electrical integrity of the active part of power transformers.

In contrast to traditional diagnostic methods, the SFRA is sensitive to external electrical interferences which may limit the comparability and can consequently lead to misinterpretation of the measurement results.

This article discusses the theory of different noise sources and noise suppression techniques. Different case studies show the efficacy for measurements even in harsh conditions.

Enjoy reading and watch out for our paper of the month regularly!
