The TANDO 700 from OMICRON electronics is a precise measuring and analysis system for dissipation/power factor (Tan Delta) and capacitance of insulation in high-voltage (HV) equipment. Thanks to its compact size and lightweight design, TANDO 700 can be transported for use in various test areas.
The Test Universe 3.0 CMC operating software from OMICRON electronics is designed for the PC-based automated testing of protection and measurement equipment.
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.
