Hi... NewUserPMU!

Are you getting this .pmu file from a SEL ?

Hi Alex

I am receiving these files from TSO(Transmission System Operator) and these files are probably in hexadecimal/binary format and i need to read these data files.

I stumbled across the same issue, but I was receiving this kind of files from a SEL relay with PMU functionality that was recording internally the phasor measurements in this format. I worked around the issue by using openPDC to get the IEEE C37.118 stream in real time. Seems to me you have similar captures of relay data, please let us know too, if you somehow manage to read this format. Why don't you ask them (the TSO) to provide details about reading the format ?

Hi Alex

Thanks for your reply. Well i have asked them and they have suggested me to develop my own tool to read this data, i could open these files using ALSOTO's Micom studio software but i can read these files only in hexadecimal format not in normal decimal format. I will let u know in case i succeeded and same applies tou you also:) thanks
