How to calculate Power using openPDC?

Jun 17, 2013 at 9:10 AM
Can anyone please provide me with steps on how to calculate power dynamically in OpenPDC. I have an input stream of voltage and current phasors but I am unable to calculate power dynamically.

Use the PowerCalculation adapter

I tried that but all I get as output is NA. Maybe I am using the Adapter incorrectly. Can you please tell me from beginning on how to use the Power Calculation Adapter.

Have you looked at the guides (specifically Power Calculation) at:
Alarming in openPDC and openPG.pdf
Command Line for Improved Diagnostics.pdf
Connect on Demand.pdf
Dynamic Calculations.pdf
Power Calculations.pdf
Archive Sizing Spreadsheet.xlsx
When you say you are getting NA for output, do you actually mean 'NaN'? Getting NaN (NoANumber) often means the data is being discarded - look at the adapter from the openPDC Console (list <adapter-name>) which will show if any data is being discarded. Some of your data may be 'late'; modifying LagTimes sometimes helps.
