‘Useful tools for substation commissioning’
This technical article from Omicron focuses on useful tools for substation commissioning, including the CMC 256 secondary test set and Test Universe 2.0 software. The use of the latest testing technology ensures the safe and reliable operation of power system equipment by comprehensive testing of all technical functions prior to the regular operation in the shortest time possible.

OMICRON’s CMC test sets allow recloser controls to be quickly and easily tested for reliable functioning. Thanks to various manufacturer-specific connections, the test sets are easy to connect to recloser control units using the specifically developed testing cables.
As OMICRON electronics explains in this article, modern protection and automation systems for electrical power systems are increasingly using communication protocols to transfer information. In the mid-term, more and more hybrid systems and systems distributed across large distances will be implemented.
Everyone is now talking about renewable energy sources — such as solar power, wind power or biogas. The thirst for alternative forms of energy is also being driven by a desire to move away from nuclear power. Yet what many people fail to see is that radical change involves more than simply decommissioning nuclear power plants and replacing them with wind farms. This article explores the new challenges being faced in the field of high-voltage component diagnostics.
The OMICRON CPC 100 with the CP CU1 accessory combination allows the injection and measurement of values at variable frequencies so the effects of power system frequency can be eliminated.
This issue focuses on, among many other things, the DANEO 400 — a hybrid measurement system that analyses conventional signals and network signals at the same time.
