RelaySimTest is a software solution for system-based protection testing with OMICRON test equipment that takes a novel, future-oriented approach: the test is independent of relay type and relay manufacturer and the often very extensive parameter settings. Instead, it completely focuses on the correct behavior of the protection system. This is made possible by simulating realistic events in the power system.
Testing IEC 61850 protection systems
The primary focus in the development of version 3.00 was on testing protection systems in digital substations with IEC 61850 communication. While this was already feasible with the Test Universe GOOSE Configuration and Sampled Value Configuration modules, it has been integrated directly into RelaySimTest – the result is the most user-friendly, secure solution for digital protection testing.
A short excerpt of the improvements in RelaySimTest 3.00:
- Testing IEC 61850 protection systems
Simulating switch control units, merging units, and other IEDs
Subscribing to GOOSEs without virtual binary inputs
Simulating four Sampled Value streams per CMC
Safe execution that prevents misoperations
GOOSE supervision (sniffing)
- End-to-end testing without remote connection
- Synchronizing local test sets without CMGPS 588
- A more comprehensive test report
