Using Project Explorer


In normal use, you can only see the Plant Structure tab in the Project Explorer window. All the configuration work, such as communication configuration, can be done via this structure by means of the configuration wizard. However, PCM 600 builds the communication structure in the background. Building the communication structure is an automatic operation, and in the normal case it does not need to be seen. The communication structure is needed in order for the PCM 600 tool components to communicate with the IEDs. If the PCM 600 tool components cannot communicate with the IEDs, or the used problematic environment requires special communication configuration not provided by the configuration wizard in the background (for example result from bad network connections), the manual configuration of the communication structure is needed. The Communication tab shows the communication configured. To show and hide the structures:

Naming IEDs
The IEDs in the Project Explorer's window Plant Structure must have unique naming. If there are several IEDs installed under different OPC servers, ensure that the IEDs have unique names. Using unique names applies to Substation, Voltage Level and Bay objects as well. There should not be several substations with the same name in the project, neither several voltage

levels with the same name under the same substation nor bays with the same name within the same voltage level. However, it is possible to have several voltage levels with the same name within different substations or bays, for example, you can build structures like Substation1\VoltageLevel1\Bay1 and Substation2\VoltageLevel1\Bay1 under the same project.

The identification of IEDs is based on the names of the IEDs. Using the same IED names under same directory path may cause problems in the SCL handling.

Setting object properties


You can set object specific properties on the Object Properties window. To view the Object Properties window select View > Object Properties. Select the property to change its value. Changing the Caption property of an object can be done from the object tree as well. Different property values can be presented several ways in the Object Properties window: Values of simple types, such as strings are changed by typing a new value to the field. Boolean types are typically presented as a drop-down list, where the value (True/False) can be selected. Expandable properties contain nested properties allowing more granular and logical level grouping than what is available for the simple types. Property values are stored in project real time without user confirmation.

Setting IED communication


You can configure the objects in order for PCM 600 to communicate with them either via the station bus or from the front panel of the IED. The communication configuration is done as described in the Setting object properties, or with the Configuration Wizard. The Configuration Wizard can be started by right-clicking the object in the Plant Structure tab and selecting Configuration Wizard. It is highly recommended to use Configuration Wizard to create a communication structure. The communication structure is built in such a way that IEDs can communicate with PCM 600. Setting up the communication with the Configuration Wizard may differ with different types of objects the same way as the related properties may differ from each other. When you have built the object tree in the Plant Structure tab of PCM 600, there are few property settings that need to be made in order to get the communication work properly. Right-click on the Project Explorer window and select the Communication to configure the IED communication to open the Communication tab. Defining IED node: 1. Click on the IED node, for example REx67B, in the Communication tab's object tree to see the properties of the IED node in the Object Properties window. 2. Set a valid IP Address to the IED for communication. Defining Logical Device node: 1. Click the Logical Device node, for example LD1, in the Communication tab's object tree to see the properties of the Logical Device node in the Object Properties window. 2.

IED User Management


Starting IED User Management General settings Editing user profile Editing user groups Modifying IED functions Saving password The IED User Management tool component is used for editing the user profiles, group memberships and group access rights for IED functions and operations. Some functionalities of this tool might not be available, depending on the level of support for these operations, that is, whether the IED has a full user management control built inside or not. If the IED does not support the full user management control, the passwords cannot be set user-specific nor the user groups are supported. A full user management control means that a user always belongs to at least one of the user groups and a user group can be assign to a specific IED function. Furthermore it is possible to set access rights for a user group regarding certain operations (read and write). When the full user management control is not supported, the user profiles and user groups cannot be edited in which case it can be possible to define a more generic passwords, for example, HMI setting and HMI communication passwords. For more information regarding IED specific functions, refer to a corresponding IED documentation. In the IED User Management toolbar you can retrieve data from an IED or alternatively write data to an IED, if you have permission to do them. You can also save the data from an IED to the PCM 600 project database.

A task configuration contains information on when the task should be run, project name, owner (that is, a user who created the task), purpose of the task and the jobs the task contains. The jobs are schedulable functions provided by the Scheduler client tools. The Client tools are tools which host one or more schedulable functions. The job functions are designed for a specific purpose (like getting disturbance recording from IED). A job consists of several attributes of which the most important are name, client tool name and job function name. A task contains one or several jobs. If there are several jobs under a task, the running order is the order in which the jobs reside under the task node in Scheduler. The task and job information defined in Scheduler are stored in the PCM 600 system database. The system database is also used for exchanging task and job information between the Task Manager and Scheduler. The jobs are run by Task Manager according to the schedule defined in the task configuration. Several tasks can be active at the same time. The number of simultaneous tasks depend on system resources (CPU speed, memory, and so on).

It is possible to move and align the components by dragging. For more information on using Template Editor, refer to the Template Editor User Manual. The templates created with Template Editor are used in Report Viewer. For more information on handling the reports, refer to Creating report. Time diagram The time diagram is a graphical module that displays either the analogue or binary channels. The diagrams can display one graph per channel or a whole channel group in the same graph. The module can be configured to show the total recording overview or a diagram for a specific disturbance, for example the first detected disturbance, A channel group can for example include currents with all the ampere unit channels or voltages with all the voltage unit channels. When displaying the overview graph, both the RMS and the pure sample values are shown in the analogue channels. When displaying a diagram from the disturbance, only the sample values are shown. The beginning of the RMS graph is not shown, because the RMS value calculations need a sample to calculate the current RMS value. Therefore, displaying the graph starts from the first calculated RMS value. Vector diagram The vector diagram is a graphical module that displays RMS and angle values in a vector diagram. Each vector in the diagram does have a corresponding row in the description table where the exact data for the vector is displayed (RMS value, angle, channel name and so on). The magnitude circle is always indicating the largest RMS value, even if the largest value is equal to zero. The module supports multiple channels, and therefore the diagram might be quite unreadable. The vector description table is added below the diagram to display each of the vector's RMS value and angle. The calculation of the RMS value requires at least one period to be able to calculate the RMS value and its angle. The time window below the diagram is used to display the starting time and the ending time in milliseconds. Template The template is build from one or more report modules. A report module could be a time diagram, vector diagram or other visual modules created dynamically. New modules can therefore be created and added to the system without re-compilation of the report framework. Some modules need calculation modules to function, those must be added to the templates as well. The report includes the following elements: Document Header Pages

Mapping analog inputs


The Analog Inputs matrix manages the mapping of virtual analog input signals (VAIn) to the physical analog input channels on the target IED. The Analog Inputs sheet displays the VAIn signals for the existing software functions configured for the IED as rows, and the possible physical inputs as columns according to the target hardware configuration. A VAIn signal is mapped to a physical analog input by typing an X in the appropriate cell of the analog inputs matrix. Pressing either ENTER or clicking another cell confirms the mapping. X can also be inserted in the cell by clicking the left mouse button. Deleting the X from a cell in the matrix removes the mapping for the associated signal (row). Pressing either ENTER or right-clicking the appropriate cell confirms the deletion. Typing an X in a different channel (column) on the same signal (row) changes the mapping, that is, the previous X is removed. After configuration, the channel column is colored light blue, to inform that the column is in use. Non-equipped channels in the hardware configuration are displayed with a channel number, but with a blank transformer type. The corresponding cells are colored light red to inform that cells cannot be configured.

Several different VAIn signals can be mapped to the same physical analog input channel, but one VAIn signal can be mapped only to one physical analog input channel.

Example If a connectivity package provides only 1-phase VAIn signal, subject to the above rules, any VAIn signal can be mapped to any analog channel on any available hardware module. Each analog input channel refers to a certain transformer type: Current transformer for protection (CT) Voltage transformer type (VT) Voltage transformer for measuring (MT) Signal Matrix helps you to produce a valid signal mapping. Non-configurable cells are colored light red.

Mapping a VAIn current signal to a voltage transformer analog channel, or mapping a VAIn voltage signal to a current transformer analog channel is not allowed.

Mapping binary inputs


Mapping input signal to channels The Binary Inputs matrix manages the mapping of virtual input signals (VBIn) to the physical input channels on the target IED. The physical input channels are the binary input channels and LED channels. The Binary Inputs sheet displays the VBIn signals for the existing software functions configured for the IED as rows, and the possible physical inputs as columns according to the target hardware configuration. The Binary Inputs matrix shows only those functions that contain single-point indication input signals. A double point signal is represented as two single-point signals. A VBIn signal is mapped to an input by typing an X in the appropriate cell of the Binary Inputs matrix. Pressing either ENTER or clicking another cell confirms the mapping. An X can also be inserted in the cell by clicking the left mouse button. Deleting the X from a cell in the matrix removes the mapping for the associated signal (row). Pressing either ENTER or rightclicking the appropriate cell confirms the deletion. Typing an X in a different channel (column) on the same signal (row) changes the mapping, that is, the previous X is removed. After configuration, the channel column is colored light blue to inform that the column is in use.

Several different VBIn signals can be mapped to the same physical binary input channel, but one VBIn signal can be mapped only to one physical binary input channel.

Page 63 of 90

Signal Matrix displays the LED channels both in the Binary Inputs sheet and in the Binary Outputs sheet. This means that both VBIn and VBOut signals can be mapped to the LED channels. If you map some already mapped signal, the previous mapping is automatically deleted. A cell colored light blue informs that the cell is already mapped. If the previous mapping is in another signal matrix, a message for this effect is displayed. A cell colored light red informs that the cell is already in use in another signal matrix.

One VBIn/VBOut signal can be mapped to several different LED channels, but one LED channel can be mapped only to one signal (either VBIn or VBOut).

If you attempt to map one LED channel to more than one signal, the most recent mapping is used and the previous mapping is deleted. Error channels In the Binary Inputs matrix there are several modules displayed containing just one channel. These channels are binary input error channels, but they are physically in other hardware modules, for example, in the Binary Output and Analog Input modules. These binary input error channels contain information on the state of the associated physical hardware module.
Protection and Control IED Manager Configuration and Engineering PCM 600

Mapping binary outputs


The Binary Outputs matrix works similarly to the Binary Inputs matrix. The Binary Outputs matrix manages the mapping of virtual output signals (VBOut) to physical output channels on the target IED. The physical output channels are the binary output channels and LED channels. The Binary Outputs sheet displays the VBOut signals for the existing software functions configured for the IED as rows, and the possible physical outputs according to the target hardware configuration as columns. A VBOut signal is mapped to an output by typing an X in the appropriate cell of the Binary Outputs Signal matrix. Pressing either ENTER or clicking another cell confirms the mapping. X can also be inserted in the cell by clicking the left mouse button. Deleting the X from a cell in the matrix removes the mapping for the associated signal (row). Pressing either ENTER or right-clicking the appropriate cell confirms the deletion. Typing an X in a different signal (row) on the same channel (column) changes the mapping, that is, the previous X is removed. After configuration, the channel column is colored light blue to inform that the column is in use.

One physical binary output channel can be mapped to only one VBOut signal, but several different physical binary output channels can be mapped to one VBOut signal.

Mapping GOOSE receive


The Goose Receive matrix manages the mapping of horizontal GOOSE Receive subscriptions between IEDs. The picture of the GOOSE logical device is displayed on the top left corner of the Signal Matrix. The header of the Goose Receive sheet consists of three rows: The first row shows the GOOSE Receive logical device (IEDName + LDInst). The second row shows the GOOSE Receive logical node (Prefix + LnClass + LnInst). The third row shows the GOOSE Receive data object (DO + DA). Mapping VCOM signals to GOOSE Receive data object attributes A GOOSE virtual signal (VCOM) is mapped to a GOOSE Receive data object attribute by typing an X in the appropriate cell of the Goose Receive matrix. Pressing either ENTER or clicking another cell confirms the mapping. X can also be inserted in the cell by clicking the left mouse button. Deleting the X from a cell in the matrix removes the mapping for the associated signal (row). Pressing either ENTER or right-clicking the appropriate cell confirms the deletion. Typing an X in a different channel (column) on the same signal (row) changes the mapping, that is, the previous X is removed. After configuration, the channel column is colored light blue to inform that the column is in use.

Several different VCOM signals can map to the same GOOSE Receive data object attribute, but one VCOM signal can be mapped only to one GOOSE Receive data object attribute.

Graphical Display Editor


Starting Graphical Display Editor Closing Graphical Display Editor Graphical Display Editor toolbar Reading display information from IED Creating display pages Printing display page Saving display pages Writing display information to IED Graphical Display Editor is a tool for configuring the graphical display of an IED. The graphical display consists of one or more pages. A display page contains the drawing area where the actual graphical configuration is made. A display is configured by dragging preconfigured symbols from a library onto the drawing area. The directed link tool can be used to draw connections between symbols. There are two grids available in Graphical Display Editor: A large grid based on a 28 x 28 pixel grid. This normal grid is used for symbols. A smaller grid based on a 6 x 12 pixel grid. This grid is used when positioning caption text or measurement symbols. The maximum size of the large display page is 240 (W) x 320 (H) pixels. This size means that there are eight full grid columns and eleven full grid rows visible in the display page. With snap to grid enabled, no standard symbols can be positioned in the remaining display page space, as they would then overlap the boundaries of the display page. Symbol palettes A symbol palette contains all of the symbols supported by Graphical Display Editor. There are two symbol palettes supported in Graphical Display Editor. The IEC symbol palette is the default palette. The ANSI symbol palette is mainly intended to be used in the U.S. market.

[empty] ? T M

Valid event (default) Event status is unknown Event is not time-synchronized Event value has been manually altered (for example by manual data entry)

Type

One (optional) character showing the status of the event as follows: [empty] P S T Event type is unknown Process event (default) System event Test event

Date&Time

The date and time (including milliseconds) of the event. The format can be selected in Regional Options of the Windows Control Panel.

Signal name Value

The name of the signal that generated the event.

The actual value of the signal at the time the event was generated. The value displayed in this column is usually empty for binary signals. Their current value is displayed only in the Status column. For analog signals a numeric value (integer or floating point) is usually displayed together with the unit text. It can also be an empty value.

Status

The text representation of the signal's status at the time the event was generated.

Additional info

An optional IED-specific (signal) information text (for example function block name). It can be empty for some IED types.

Note that some of these columns can be hidden because all their values are either empty or equal to a default value (for example all values of the Type column are process events).

Sorting event data


The default order of the events is by descending date and time, that is, the newest events are shown at the top of the list. To sort the event data differently, click the column header of the column to be sorted. The data is sorted in ascending order of the column values which is indicated by an upwards triangle on the right side of the column name. To sort in descending order, click the same column header again. The descending order is indicated by a downwards triangle on the right side of the column name. Clicking the same column header a third time the sort order

changes back to ascending. The Date & Time column can also be sorted by selecting Event Viewer > Show newest events on top/on bottom or by clicking the Show newest events on top/on bottom toolbar button. If the event list is already sorted by date and time, the order is reversed by the command. The actual sort order is stored when closing Event Viewer and the same sort order is held when Event Viewer is opened the next time.
Protection and Control IED Manager Configuration and Engineering PCM 600

Filtering event data


Filtering allows reducing the amount of the displayed event data to a wanted subset. To filter event data: Select Event Viewer > Filter On/Off or Click the Filter On/Off toolbar button. A filter bar is displayed below the column headers consisting of a drop-down list box for each column with the column values as menu items. Select a value from the drop-down list box of the wanted column, to display only those events, which have that specific value. To specify more detailed filter conditions, select Custom filter. A dialog box Custom Filter for Event List Column is displayed where detailed conditions for example showing values inside a certain range; or combining two conditions with an or-condition or an and-condition, can be specified. Click OK to apply the filtering conditions. Filters can be used on more than one column which causes the filter conditions to be combined over these columns. To turn off a filter condition on a specific column select No filter from the column's dropdown list box. To turn off all filters: Select Event Viewer > Filter On/Off again or Click the Filter On/Off toolbar button again. The filter bar below the column headers disappears. The actual filter settings are stored when closing Event Viewer and the same filter settings are held when opening Event Viewer next time.

Reading newest events from IED


To update the event data with the newest events from the IED: Select IED > Read newest events from IED or Click the Read newest events from IED toolbar button.

Note that depending on the capabilities of the IED and the corresponding Connectivity Package new events are either automatically added to the tabular display or collected and displayed by Event Viewer on a regular basis. The command Read newest events from IED is therefore only useful if the waiting time until the next automatic update seems to be too long. New events (if any) are only added to the display if the actual time period is displayed, that is, the user has not moved to a different time period (Refer to Moving to another period ).

Protection and Control IED Manager Configuration and Engineering

PCM 600

Selecting period type


Event Viewer displays event data only for a selected time period to reduce the amount of displayed data which also improves performance, and to allow easier retrieval of wanted events. The default time period is one day. To select a period type: Select Event Viewer > Select period type and select the wanted period type from the submenu or Select the wanted period type directly from the Events of period drop-down combo box. Period type Unlimited allows displaying of all events for the IED irrespective of period length boundaries. For all other period types, the period boundaries are lengthened by 5 minutes at the beginning and at the end of the period to have the possibility to easily detect also the events near the period boundaries. For example, if the actual selected period type is one day, the events that happened shortly before or after midnight are displayed as well.

Note that when selecting period types with a long period length, for example Unlimited, Month or Week, loading events takes a considerable amount of time depending on the number of events generated by the IED. In case an IED generates a lot of events, it can be true also for period type Day or even shorter period types.

Moving to another period


To move to the event data of another time period, select one of the following commands in the Event Viewer menu or click one of the corresponding toolbar buttons: Go to first period Moves to the oldest available event data of the IED. Go to previous period Go to next period Go to last period Moves to the newest available event data of the IED. Go to specific period Specify the date for which the events of the IED are to be displayed. In case the selected period type is less than one day, the wanted hour can be selected as well. Exit the dialog box by clicking OK. After selecting one of the commands, Event Viewer displays the events of the selected period. These menu commands and toolbar buttons are enabled only if there is at least one event whose date and time are outside the boundaries of the selected period. Furthermore, all these commands and toolbar buttons are always disabled if period type Unlimited has been selected. Refer to Selecting period type .

Note that when selecting period types with a long period length, for example Unlimited, Month or Week, loading events takes a considerable amount of time depending on the number of events generated by the IED. In case an IED generates a lot of events, it can be true also for period type Day or even shorter period types.
