SurvalentONE SCADA Optional Applications
Automatic Generation Control
Automatic Generation Control (ACG) is a feedback control system that regulates the power output of electric generators within your control area so as to maintain scheduled system frequency and/or power interchange within predetermined limits.
Command Sequencing is an easy-to-use high-level programming language that allows the user to define and execute programs which use database points as variables. Command Sequence programs can be used for calculations, open-loop control or switching sequences and for closed-loop control.
Survalent’s Control Panel allows you have an actual IED represented by an image of the IED’s front panel. The dynamic elements display current values of the points in the IED, and allows the user to issue controls and set-points.
SurvalentONE Customer Notifications is a two-way outage alert system that enables utilities to send outage alerts to their affected customers’ mobile phones via text message directly through the OMS. It also empowers customers to report outages by simply texting the command word “OUT” to a specified phone number. The sophisticated communication system also allows utilities to notify customers via email and social media, in addition to SMS, all from within the OMS.
This capability improves communication, transparency, and customer engagement while reducing utilities’ response time and inbound call volume during outages.
For bi-directional transcribing of SCADA data into relational databases. Supports Microsoft Access, SQL Server, Sybase, and Oracle, and transcribes current values, historical data, operation messages (including alarms), and event logs (including SOE).
The Disturbance Capture application monitors changes to all analog and status points periodically, defines events that trigger disturbance data captures, monitors disturbance triggers and generates disturbance capture files.
External Alarm Bell
External Alarm Bell is used for operations under noisy conditions. The application can control (activate/de-activate) several different external alarm bells based on alarm priorities for any of the different alarm zone groups.
Fault Data Recorder
Fault Data Recorder program is used to upload and record fault data from SEL relays and consists of a Fault Recorder editor and an executive program. The editor allows the user to identify fault data points as well as other points and parameters that are involved in the process of retrieving the fault data.
The IED Wizard is a tool that automates the creation of the database points for supported IEDs. Users have the ability create their own templates, or use one of the existing templates.
Lightning Strike Interface
SurvalentONE Lightning Strike helps utilities prepare and plan for potential outages caused by a lightning strike in their area, and monitor them to assess the extent of damage caused to the distribution network.
SurvalentONE Lightning Strike Interface fetches real-time lightning strike information from external sources, filters it by utilities’ area of interest and then stores it in their SCADA database. Utilities can specify certain SCADA alarms that can be raised for lightning strikes detected within their area. The locations of the lightning strikes are displayed in Live Map mode, with color-coded lightning indications to show the approximate age of each strike.
Master/Slave Alarm Suppression
Master/Slave Alarm Suppression allows a defined hierarchy of primary/secondary (master/slave) alarm point relationships. These relationships may be used for either alarm suppression or group acknowledgement, or both.
Operations & Outage Accounting
The Operations and Outage Accounting function is based on the Event Data Recording facility which records all status changes and control operations in an event data file (retains events for up to 30 days). Operations and outage reports can be produced.
Remote Alarm Annunciation
The Remote Alarm Annunciation application enables the user to send an e-mail, paging, SNMP, and SMS text message for specified alarms.
The Virtual RTU application allows for quick and easy setup of a virtual device that can be polled by another master station via DNP3.0 or Modbus protocol. This is a great alternative to ICCP for sharing data between two SCADA master stations.
