    Automatic Event and Waveform Retrieval

    Automated archiving of event and waveform data from GE Multilin devices ensures availability of detailed information for diagnosing power system events.

    Event Logging

    The event records from GE Multilin devices can be automatically downloaded from each device and stored in a centralized, system-wide, sequence of event record. Viewpoint Monitoring will continually poll each GE Multilin device to see if any new events have been added to that device's event record. Once a new event has been detected, the event record will be downloaded and the new events will be stored in the system-wide sequence of events record.

    Event Viewing

    The Event Viewer centrally stores and displays information about preset and configured systems events. Each event in the record contains the following information. This data can be sorted by any of the fields indicated below:

    • Event Time
    • Event Type
    • Source Name
    • Source Type
    • Event Cause
    Create comprehensive, centralized, system-wide sequence of event records for analysis of power system faults.

    Waveform Archiving

    The waveform (oscillography) files from GE Multilin devices can be automatically downloaded from each device and stored on your hard drive. Similar to Event Logging, Viewpoint Monitoring will continually poll each GE Multilin device to see if any new waveform files have been created. Once a new waveform has been detected, the file will be downloaded by Viewpoint Monitoring to the centralized data repository.

    Waveform Viewing

    View and analyze waveform fault data that has been recorded from a power system device in a time-based, phasor quantity or tabular view. This Waveform View utility provides functionality to:

    • Convert waveforms that were stored in Comma Separated Value (.CSV) format to COMTRADE compatible files (e.g. SR Family, PQM)
    • Merge and overlay waveforms that were recorded from multiple devices
    • Identify the harmonic content in the monitored parameters
