‘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.

Technical article: distributed energy resources present new challenges for protection systems download
Several national and international agreements strive for a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions. For example, the European 20/20/20 targets demand a reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union of at least 20 per cent below 1990 levels, 20 per cent of the energy consumption to come from renewable resources and a 20 per cent reduction in primary energy use to be achieved by improving energy efficiency. Ambitious goals such as these are about to challenge and change ...
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. In this context, hybrid means that protection and automation systems will operate simultaneously with classical secondary quantities and conventionally wired binary status signals.
OMICRON’s RelaySimTest software allows CMC test set users to perform simulation-based relay tests independent of the relay type, manufacturer and detailed parameters. The software is suitable for end-to-end testing in the field.
The OMS 800 monitors surge voltage limiter, oil pressure and partial discharge events in the dielectric on cable joints and terminations.
OMICRON electronics recently got together with Austrian power utility Illwerke to perform an initial field test of its RelaySimTest software.
