Adding a SEL PMU

Jun 29, 2011 at 5:56 PM

Hi all,


I recently started to use OpenPDC. I followed the instruction on the youtube video ( and finished the installation. I have 3 SEL 421s and 1 SEL 3378. I configured these equipments and now I want to see real time data using openPDC.


I am kind of lost in the tutorials, can someone guide me how to add a device--I think I need to add SVP's IP address in build Connection String Part--I was using UDP to connect to SVP when I was using SEL software, does openPDC use UDP?

Yes, SEL 5073 and OpenPDC can be connected together. Both works on IEEE C37-118 protocol. SEL 5073/3378 uses Serial configuration ethernet port for communication, while OpenPDC uses UDP/TCP port for communication and these two can be connected together for flow of data on real-time basis.

Can you be little specific about what actually you want to know? Thanks.
