      SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports

      Automated Meter Data and Power Quality Reporting Software

      SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports Software collects and combines data from multiple measurement points and provides dynamic charts and tabular reports of load profile data, voltage disturbances, energy consumption, and power quality compliance. Automated report generation can drive planning, operating, and accounting decisions that increase efficiency and reduce costs.

      Synchrowave Reports can be configured with report templates designed to support metering data analysis and power quality monitoring.

      Budgetary Retail

      SEL-5705 Synchrowave Reports can be licensed with two options. Synchrowave Reports—Meter Data includes report templates to support meter data analysis, while Synchrowave Reports—Power Quality includes all Meter Data reports and an IEEE 519 Compliance report template.

      Synchrowave Reports is server-based software that requires SEL-5045 acSELerator Team software to collect metering data for analysis. Synchrowave Reports—Meter Data and Synchrowave Reports—Power Quality can be purchased individually or bundled with an acSELerator Team license.

      Automatically Generate Reports—Save time and reduce steps with scheduled report generation to automate your meter data tracking processes. Choose reports that present high-level summary information about your system or detailed information from specific metering points.

      Receive Reports by Email—Streamline data tracking and compliance monitoring with detailed reports pushed to your phone or computer at selected intervals.

      Trend Data to Understand Power System Performance—Use interactive charts in the Synchrowave Reports web interface to analyze metering data trends, refining selections by time to get a complete picture of system events.

      Optimize Resources—Increase efficiency and reduce costs using data captured by SEL meters to drive planning, operating, and accounting decisions. Interactive charts help you identify increased power usage or power quality fluctuations and harmonics during specific time ranges. You can then export those data to tabular reports for further analysis or recordkeeping.

      Enhance Security—Maintain data confidentiality with a web-based interface offering TLS encryption and LDAP authentication.

      System Architecture

      Synchrowave Reports works in coordination with acSELerator Team SEL-5045 Software. Team regularly polls the meter and collects load data profile (LDP) and other data, archiving it in an acSELerator Database.

      Access Synchrowave Reports through a web browser. Information for report generation, viewing, analysis, and distribution is retrieved through the acSELerator Database by the Synchrowave Platform.

      Synchrowave Reports includes several report templates to simplify data analysis out of the box. Each Synchrowave Reports configuration option includes a default set of reports to meet an application’s needs.

      The software can be ordered in bundles with acSELerator Team licenses. The table below indicates the reports that are available in the Meter Data and the Power Quality software bundles.


      Synchrowave Reports—Meter Data Overview

      The Meter Data option includes reports to access and organize metering data collected and stored by acSELerator Team. Use interactive charts and reports to quickly identify trends and opportunities for improvement, as well as validate usage patterns. In just a few clicks, operators can export and email reports in PDF or CSV format for easy sharing or further analysis in third-party software.

      Meter Data reports can be used to organize data from site-wide metering points and analyze the consumption of energy during different periods. Avoid peak demand charges and optimize schedules that move overlapping electric processes to off-peak hours. ITI (CBEMA) curves and detailed voltage event tables can indicate power disturbance issues before they affect equipment.

      Synchrowave Reports—Power Quality Overview

      The Power Quality option includes an IEEE 519 Compliance report to streamline power quality compliance monitoring. The software analyzes metering data and delivers daily or weekly detailed reports with current and voltage harmonics up to the 50th harmonic for each metering point.

      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 technologies that produce nonlinear distortions in power systems, such as energy-efficient LED lighting, variable-frequency drives (VFDs), and power inverters. The switching nature of these devices has increased harmonic distortion on distribution and transmission lines, which negatively affects neighboring loads and generation sources. Power quality distortions result in excess heat, efficiency loss, system capacity reduction, mechanical oscillations of motors and generators, light flickering, and other issues.

      Ordering Options

      Synchrowave Reports—Power Quality software also includes all Meter Data reports to provide system-wide awareness within the web interface.
