Optional Advanced Applications
Archiver Reporting Application
The Archiver Reporting Application provides a web browser based interface to access and manipulate archived data. The application is installed on the Archiver server in order to access the archived data. Users have the option to display the information in tabular or graph format and the information can be exported to PDF reports or Microsoft Excel.
The SurvalentONE SCADA system provides a means for the external support systems (PDS, QAS, OTS, etc.) to receive near-real-time data from the active control system, and forward it to external systems. Data forwards to the external systems includes all telemetered data, manually entered data, tags, limit overrides, and others.
The GIS Wizard application offers a user friendly GUI that integrates GIS data with Survalent’s ADMS. With the flexibility of data conversion and cross checking functionalities, it converts GeoDatabases into Survalent protocol compliance data tables. The GIS Wizard converts spatial and non-spatial data into Survalent data tables and provides assessment reports for further actions to GIS data.
Operator Training Simulator (OTS)
Operator Training Simulator (OTS) consists of a second independent copy of the ADMS system operating with simulation programs instead of scan tasks. The OTS application allows the instructor to maintain multiple copies of the database for training purposes. It also has the ability to simutaneously execute multiple scripts to simulate various network conditions.
Archiver, a companion program to the Survalent Replicator, can be used to extend the historical data tables beyond the sizes imposed by the configuration of the SCADA system. The Archiver does this by transferring the data from the replicated tables into a parallel set of archive tables, and allowing the archive tables to grow to a much larger size, or even indefinitely. The Archiver can be installed on multiple computers to provide multiple archiving services. Each instance of the Archiver can be configured to archive any combination of historical tables from the replicated database into another database.
Survalent Excel Add-In Application
The Survalent Excel application makes for a quick and efficient interface between the SCADA database and Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access, so reports, graphs, and queries can be easily created. Once installed, a SCADA menu shows on the pull-down menu bar within Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access. Real-time point data (status and analog) as well as historical information are available through the Survalent Excel Add-In application.
The Survalent Replicator is a client/server application that provides real-time data replication of the ADMS database to a SQL Server or Oracle database residing in a demilitarized zone (DMZ). The System Administrator can select the ADMS database tables, and any fields within those tables, to be replicated to the relational database in the DMZ. Historical data sets can also be replicated, so corporate users have access to near-real-time and historical data.
SurvCentral leverages the WebSurv application and infrastructure to provide tabular and graphical data for mobile devices running Apple iOS Android, Windows and Blackberry operating systems (tablet or laptops). The application has a simplified system of menus that requires less memory and performs faster on mobile devices.
Switch Orders & Guarantees
A switch order is a sequence of steps involving both switching operations and tags that produce conditions for which a guarantee may be issued. Guarantees are database forms that allow the user to define, issue and surrender condition guarantees complete with tags (also known as clearances).
Topology Processor is an application that calculates and displays the energized/de-energized status of network line sections in the SmartVU GUI. The calculation is based on the topology of the network and the current status of breakers, switches, and other circuit elements. For areas that are energized, Topology Processor also indicates where the network is paralleled or looped.
WebSurv is a powerful application which serves real-time SCADA information to users via a web browser, without the need for custom installation or maintenance. WebSurv allows corporate users to view any SmartVU graphical display, substation one-line, or tabular display. Refresh of dynamic data, alarms, and graphics can be user defined and achieved on a periodic basis every few seconds.
Replicator is a requirement of WebSurv.
