How to use Comtrade.dll in openpDC 2.0

Nov 16, 2013 at 7:40 PM

i want to export the data in comtrade format for phasor values say every 15sec,.
Is it required to create Historian instance using Comtrade.dll to get in actions adapter list ?

somehow i am unable to use this feature , could you guide me in achieving this output.

By default you can setup the system with a local historian to archive your data then use the Historian Trending Tool to export data to COMTRADE format.

Are you wanting an adapter to automatically archive in COMTRADE format?

Thanx , in historian trending tool i am able to see only statics related measurements for export in comtrade format.

I have configured the Action adpater with comtrde dll. during configuration input measurements keys are taken from Some PMU phasors(click here to edit parameter ), i am not sure, whether do i need to create output measurements(channels for every measurement) to be created ?

You are correct , we are in the requirement for data to be exported automatically for say 15 seconds( ex : 10 seconds after trigger and 5 seconds before data, here triggering may be manual, automatic triggering may be through event detection or alarm).

Local historian is storing data in ppa_archive .D format along with ppa_dbase and ppa_startup ,like that can we store data in .dat file along with .cfg files in compatible with COMTRADE at some location continuously?
