      acSELerator Team Software

      Product Change Notice—Last-Time Buy
      acSELerator Team SEL-5045 Software will no longer be available for purchase after December 9, 2024. SEL recommends selecting the SEL Data Management and Automation (DMA) Blueframe application suite in place of Team.

      Team automates the collection of power system data from multiple devices and stores these data in a central location for easy access. When something happens, whether it’s a relay trip, system fault, or security notification, Team is ready to help with continuous background monitoring, collection, notification, and storage. This ensures that the data are there when you need them to help discover root cause, maintain records for regulatory compliance, and keep your system running at peak efficiency.

      Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) Automated Data Collection—Accelerate root-cause analysis by automatically collecting events as soon as they occur. Oscillographic event data are beneficial for monitoring the system, fault analysis, and troubleshooting purposes. Quickly identify important events by type, device, location, or time with the event viewer tool.

      System Performance Monitoring—Collect Sequence of Events (SOE) data from SEL and select GE devices to assist with overall system performance analysis. Along with oscillographic data, SOE data are a key source of information during fault analysis because they provide a time-stamped record of a device’s state changes.

      Timely System Notifications—Receive instant alerts via email and text messages when a new event arrives.

      Power Quality Reports—Aggregate profile data from SEL meters containing energy, demand, voltage, current, harmonic, and frequency trends that can offer useful quality and billing information through further analysis with SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports.

      Report Storage Management—Configure Team servers to automatically delete outdated reports and manage the size of the database.

      Transmission Fault Location—Determine an accurate fault location in order to direct repair crews and to quickly restore service. Team Transmission Fault Location (TFL) uses a two-terminal fault location method based on event information collected from relays located at the line terminals.

      Data Redundancy and Transport—Synchronize information between several Team stations and locations using Team Sync.

      Password Management—Integrate Team with SEL’s security products (e.g., SEL-3620 Ethernet Security Gateway and SEL-3025 Serial Shield) for password management and security log collection.

      Accelerate Root-Cause Analysis
      Whenever an event occurs, an SEL relay generates and stores an event report. By creating jobs in Team, you can have the software retrieve the event data from each device and store this information in the Central acSELerator Database for viewing and analysis. Event reports can then be grouped and associated with specific incidents, such as a windstorm. The built-in filter options enable selection for fast analysis of event data. Team provides the central data repository for the power system data. Analyze these data through the use of an analytic tool, such as SEL-5601-2015 synchroWAVe Event 2015.

      Predefined jobs for SEL devices make report collection easy, and multiple devices can quickly be assigned jobs. Team can collect a variety of event report file types, including SEL CEV, COMTRADE, GE Modbus, and Alstom via the Courier protocol. Team can also export any event data in COMTRADE format for further analysis as well as export event summaries in spreadsheet, HTML, and other formats.

      Import Load Profile Data From SEL Meters
      When serving a large metered area, such as a dense industrial zone, load profile data containing energy, demand, voltage, current, harmonic, and frequency trends can offer useful quality and billing information. Team Profile provides automatic collection of these data. Use Synchrowave Reports to create and define any number of reports.

      Analog Data
      Recording analog data provides additional insight into the state of the system or the devices monitoring the system. Through use of the Real-Time Automation Controller (RTAC) TrendRecorder Library, Team can automate the collection of RTAC-generated files containing analog values. You can then use Synchrowave Reports to visualize these data. For more details on the specifications of the analog data collected, refer to the RTAC TrendRecorder instruction manual.

      Locate Transmission Faults Quickly and Accurately
      Accurate transmission line fault location information with minimal delay means utilities and cooperatives spend less time locating the fault and restoring service. Team TFL uses a two-terminal fault location method based on event information collected from relays located at the line terminals. It then executes the TFL algorithm and, if configured, sends the results via email to subscribed users.

      Installation Catered to Your Needs
      Team installation is flexible to meet the specific requirements of your organization. Install Team on a single master station or separately at each substation to provide a complete event data collection solution.

      In addition, you can gain even more flexibility by taking advantage of SEL equipment already on your system. For example, the SEL-3530 RTAC expedites new event notification by alerting Team when a new event appears.

      Custom Data Collection
      Create custom collection jobs to automate the collection of data from SEL devices where a default job does not exist. For example, many of our SEL devices house reports for load profile data. While Team provides predefined collection jobs for the SEL metering devices, Team can also collect related load data profile reports from other SEL devices that support the functionality. Create a simple script, associate it with a custom task, and assign a job to a Team device. Team will execute the job by connecting to the device, issuing the commands listed in the script, and then saving the results back to the server hard drive. This automates the collection and storage of data that were previously processed manually.

      Never Lose Event Data
      Some Team installations involve a single master station, while others include separate installations at multiple locations. However you have your system set up, data backup is important—and Team Sync is designed to meet every customer’s needs with stability and high performance. Team Sync is a service that pushes data to another station on demand or at set intervals. Team Sync is a secure, effective, and cost-saving option for automated data redundancy and transport.
