Used in conjunction with OMICRON’s CPC 100, Primary Test Manager is claimed to be the perfect tool for performing tests in a way that is time saving and cost effective.
The effects of the changes in Germany’s energy policy are already being felt. Together with the photovoltaic systems installed in southern Germany and various biogas facilities, the countless wind turbines along the north German coast should cover at least 35 per cent of Germany’s total energy requirements by 2020. As this OMICRON Magazine article explains, REpower tested a new generation of high-performance offshore wind turbines at selected locations, although they were initially ...
Voltage transformers (VTs) are used in electrical grids for metering and/or protection purposes. The high requirements regarding their precision demand a calibration of the objects before installation. The accuracy classes of VTs are different for protection and metering transformers and are classified depending on the maximum ratio and phase-angle error between the vectors of the primary voltage and the secondary voltage related to the primary side.
OMICRON recently got together with Austrian power utility Illwerke to perform an initial field test of RelaySimTest.
The Visayan Electric Company (VECO) in the Philippines has been using the compact OMICRON FRAnalyzer for many years.
