Trying to save the PDC stream data in CSV format

I am new to PDC. I just installed openPDC and trying to save the stream data in .csv format using Access. I have set up the database and PDC( its a real pdc that aggregates 4 real PMU data) is connected (that I can see the frequency and phase angles in PDC manager window). It would be great if somebody can give me advice on how to capture that data in csv format so that I can use to analyze power system events.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Several ways to do this - one way is to setup a CSV output adapter and start writing data to the file, only enabling the adapter when you want to export data.

Perhaps the easiest way is to simply configure the system with a local historian and then just run the Historian Playback Utility or the Historian Viewer and export the data to a CVS file. The playback utility exports one row per point, the viewer will export one row per timestamp with one column per point.
