SEL-5073 synchroWAVe PDC Software provides synchrophasor aggregation and time alignment for downstream applications and interentity data sharing. It is both a flexible synchrophasor data routing solution and archiving tool, configurable for both local and remote archiving.
Quantity 1: $4,140
Data Concentration—Concentrate up to 500 IEEE C37.118-2005 phasor measurement unit (PMU) inputs, or bring a combination of PMU and PDC inputs into the SEL-5073 synchroWAVe PDC Software running on your Microsoft Windows-based PC, and use it as a central system PDC. Configure up to six independent output streams to provide data to the ISO, neighbor utilities, or your own engineering and operations department, using applications like the SEL-5078-2 synchroWAVe Central Software.
Data Archiving—Archive PMU data locally on the PC where the software is installed, or configure the PDC to continuously save data to a centralized backup archive. Archives can be continuously recorded or based on PMU trigger bits. Retrieve archived data in COMTRADE or CSV formats.
Secure Access—Obtain NERC CIP compliance support with individual user- and role-based account authentication, centralized user authentication using Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), strong passwords, and user access logs.
Disturbance Recording—Implement synchroWAVe PDC as part of your NERC PRC-002-2 Disturbance Monitoring and Reporting solution. Meet the dynamic disturbance recording requirement by archiving PMU data at a rate of 30 messages/ second.
Centralized Data Server—Use synchroWAVe PDC as your super PDC, and provide synchrophasor data for applications like wide-area situational awareness, angle monitoring, system stability assessment, modal analysis, disturbance recording, and more.
The SEL PDC Assistant software provides quick and easy commissioning for the SEL-5073 software PDC as well as SEL-3573 and SEL-3373 hardware PDCs. Make settings in online or offline mode, monitor system status, export diagnostic logs and archives, and manage user accounts.
The Firmware IDs for older versions of the firmware can typically be found in Appendix A of the instruction manual.
synchroWAVe PDC Software is licensed per server/computer. Licenses are available for up to 20 or for more than 20 phasor measurement unit (PMU) connections. Licenses are also available with and without archiving. To purchase a license, contact your local SEL sales representative.
