SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports Software streamlines power quality compliance monitoring and reporting for IEEE 519-2014. Synchrowave Reports detects current and voltage waveform distortion at a single point or throughout a power system, analyzes the data, and delivers system insights to help quickly identify harmonic disturbances.
Synchrowave Reports automates report generation and simplifies data analysis with report delivery via email. It includes four reporting options: daily or weekly summary reports with high-level compliance information for each metering point, and daily or weekly detailed reports with current and voltage harmonics up to the 50th harmonic for each metering point.
Improve System Awareness—Monitor and detect voltage and current waveform distortion to identify sources of long-term harmonics that compromise power quality.
Gain Detailed Insights—Identify harmonic disturbances from the 2nd to 50th order for each metering point.
Streamline Processes—Automate data analysis and report generation for daily and weekly compliance reports. Schedule PDF report delivery directly to your email inbox.
Generate Summary or Detailed Reports—Reporting options include daily or weekly summary and detailed reports. The one-page summary reports include pass or fail information for voltage and current. Information including location, device type, and system configuration is also recorded. Detailed reports combine the summary information with individual voltage and current harmonic values for each metering point, up to the 50th harmonic. This additional granularity helps identify exact frequency ranges that cause harmonic distortion.
Within ac power systems, the most efficient transfer of energy is with a pure sinusoidal waveform, as it only contains the fundamental frequency. Innovations in ac/dc and dc/ac power conversion have led to growing adoption of energy-efficient LEDs for all lighting locations, variable-frequency drives (VFDs) in industrial applications, and inverters in distributed generation and electric vehicle charging. The switching nature of these devices has increased nonlinear distortion on distribution and transmission lines, producing undesirable harmonics on the power system. As a type of signal distortion, harmonics negatively affect neighboring loads and generation sources, resulting in excess heat, efficiency loss, system capacity reduction, mechanical oscillations of motors and generators, light flickering, and other issues.
Utilities, power producers, and customers must identify and correct sources of harmonic distortion to maximize system efficiency and performance. To achieve this, many utilities require compliance with IEEE 519-2014.
Synchrowave Reports works in coordination with SEL-735 Power Quality and Revenue Meters and acSELerator Team SEL-5045 Software. A meter monitors the point of common coupling (PCC) and records aggregated quantities per IEC 61000 power quality standards in its local load data profile (LDP) recorder. Team regularly polls the meter and collects LDP data, archiving it in an acSELerator Database.
Synchrowave Reports connects to the acSELerator Database and retrieves information for IEEE 519 report generation, viewing, analysis, and distribution. Access Synchrowave Reports through the Synchrowave platform via a web browser.
Locate recently generated reports and the compliance status for each metering point. Sort by name, date/time, and compliance status.
Retrieve and print reports within the web browser interface, or save them as PDFs to a local or network drive.
Create a template for daily or weekly reports.
View scheduled reports and configure when reports are generated and delivered via email.
Assign a measurement point and required parameters for each template.
Schedule report generation and email delivery.
Review and manage existing scheduled tasks.
View high-level pass or fail information for current and voltage harmonics.
For asset management, view information including location, device type, and system configuration.
Fail indicates frequency and amount above IEEE 519 threshold.
Configurable alerts warn of noncompliance.
The Firmware IDs for older versions of the firmware can typically be found in Appendix A of the instruction manual.
Synchrowave Reports requires access to LDP records collected by Team and stored in an acSELerator Database. Licenses for the necessary software are available as a software bundle per metering point or as individual components in larger quantities.
