2.1.1 Introduction

Users can create, edit or delete installations as required. Each installation is associated with a text file whose name and location are the user's responsibility. The installation contains the following information:

- Installation Text. All installations have associated text.

- Communications Protocol. Each installation communicates via a single protocol which can be selected from a list of protocols.

- Type of Communication. A certain communications protocol can be supported by different hardware and ways of accessing them. The type of hardware and access determine the 'type of communication'.

- Additional Information. Depending on the protocol and type of communication, the user should provide certain additional information in order to be able to dialog with the installation.

2.1.2 Accessing the Installation Dialog

Selecting the Protections menu option on the initial screen calls up the menu shown on the right.

By selecting the first menu option, Installations, you access a dialog that allows you to explore the PC's file system and manage the various installations.

subdirecty, which is the default location where the installations are

created. Only files with an sbs extension are shown, i.e. files containing information about

installations.

\datos\subestaciones

In the screen on the right, the file sub_tests.sbs is selected. Its complete path is shown under the Path heading and its contents are shown for informational purposes only under the Preview heading.

Each installation is represented by a single file, so you can manage the installations just like you would handle a regular file.

2.1 Defining and Managing Installations

You can delete a installation by highlighting the file and pressing delete. This deletes the selected file and, consequently, the installation.

You can Create a installation by entering a nonexistent file name in the dialog box next to Name and pressing Edit , or you can Edit an existing installation by selecting the relevant file and pressing Edit.

It is important to note that users are free to create a installation in the location of their choice within the directory tree, to organize the installation by directories as required and to know where are those installations and directories.

In either case a dialog like the one shown on the right is called up, where the only difference is that the heading shown at the top of the dialog will be either Create installation or Edit installation. The above dialog box shows the default settings entered by

2.1.3 Editing the Installation

Whether you are creating or editing a installation, the way the data are edited is the same:

- The Installation Text field is always editable.

- The Protocol field lets the user select a specific communications protocol; in our case only PROCOME 3.0 is available.

- The Communication Type field lets you indicate the hardware used for data transmission, which can be:

o

Direct, in this case the rest of the additional data are included in the SERIAL box, except the Telephone and Modem fields (see above screen).

o

RTC, Switched Telephone Network; in this case the rest of the additional data are included in the SERIAL box.

o

LAN, Local Area Network; in this case the rest of the additional data are included in the NETWORK box.

Depending on the selection enabled in Communication Type, only meaningful fields may be edited in the SERIAL and NETWORK boxes.

The meaning and range of each of the fields is described individually below.

- Installation Text: text indicating the selected installation.

- Protocol: indicates the communications protocol to be used; the only value allowed is PROCOME.

- Communication Type: the allowed values are:

o

DIRECT, direct communication via serial line.

o

RTC, Communication via Switched Telephone Network.

o

LAN, Communication via Local Area Network.

- Speed: the speed of communication. The allowed values are:

300

9600

600

14400

1200

19200

2400

38400

4800

- Select default values (for speed): allows users to indicate whether or not default values are accepted for the selected speed.

o

YES selects the default values (cannot be edited).

o

NO lets the values be edited. Users are advised to use default values, and in any case not to use values that are smaller than the existing default values:

T. first character (ms): indicates the maximum delay time for arrival of the first character.

T. message (ms): indicates the maximum delay time allowed between the arrival of the first and last character of the message.

T. between retries (ms): indicates the set delay time before retrying.

Nº. of retries: indicates the number of retries.

- Data bits: the allowed values are:

It is important to note that:

- Any modem that can be installed under WINDOWS® can be used to communicate with the installations.

- Direct relay communications (PC serial cable <-> protection) should be viewed as a particular means of communicating with a installation. In fact, there is no explicit option in Zivercomplus ® for directly communicating with a protection, so this must be done by creating a installation with the DIRECT option in the 'Communication Type' field.

2.1.4 Communicating with the Installation

In the installation management dialog, the Communicate button lets you go directly to the dialog that lets you communicate with the installation selected at that time. As described in section 2.2.1 of Chapter 2, this is one of the two ways of accessing the communications input dialog.

Connection

Dialog with a protection is always through an installation, even in case of direct communication (see section 2.1.3 of Chapter 2).

The installation connection dialog can be accessed by pressing the Communicate button as described in section 2.1.4 or from the start screen menu shown in section 2.1.2 (both in Chapter

2).

In this case, a list of the last instalations with which communications have been established is displayed in the IEDs submenu, between the Instalations and Emulate menu options. In the example shown at right, the last instalation accessed was Sb Example. This list can have up to a maximum of 10 items.

A dialog like the one shown on the right is

displayed upon selecting any of the available instalations. The instalation text - in this example the text is Sb Example - is displayed under the Communicate title.

Under the fixed Preview text there is a window where you can see the contents of the file that supports the installation. It is for informational purposes only, that is, you cannot make any communication setup changes here.

Under the fixed Addresses text a list is displayed

with the possible addresses for a protection within

an installation. In the example, the '0' is highlighted

in the address column.

By selecting the address of the protection equipment you wish to communicate with and pressing OK, the Zivercomplus ® program tries to communicate with the selected address.

- 1T: shows whether a setting is a single-group setting or a setting with several groups. If there is a # symbol in the column, then it is a single-group setting. If there is nothing, like in the figure, the setting has several groups (4 in this example).

- Current value: indicates the value of the setting in the equipment; if the setting has not been brought yet we put . Cannot be edited.

- New value: indicates the working value currently available for operating (send, save, print, etc.). It can be obtained in various ways and it can be edited. Its absence is indicated by too. If ZivercomPlus ® is accessed from Intelitool, this new value will be present when accessing the equipment, and is imported from the CID. For adjustments that are not contemplated under the CID, the default value will be applied.

The only exclusively informational item in the top bar is the group selector which provides information about how many groups are available in the equipment (in this example, four) and which is the active group: in this case, the active group is group three (red color and arrow). It also tells you that the current work group is group one (depressed button). This indicates that the settings you see on the screen, if any, are for group one. Obviously, this does not affect single-group settings, which are marked with a #. The current work group is changed by pressing the desired group number. Note that whatever is displayed on the screen always refers to the current group.

When a setting is highlighted, i.e. is being edited, you can:

- Edit the setting as appropriate (entering the number or scrolling to the option).

- Press ESC to exit edit mode without changing the setting. This is equivalent to canceling the operation.

- Press RETURN to validate an alteration; and if successful, the setting is changed and you exit edit mode. If the operation fails, the reason is indicated and you continue in edit mode in the same setting.

- Press TAB to validate an alteration; and if successful, the setting is changed and you scroll down to the next editable setting. If the operation fails, the reason is indicated and you continue in edit mode in the same setting.

- Pressing SHIFT-TAB has the same effect as pressing TAB alone, but editing scrolls up instead of down.

- Press with the left bottom out of the setting; if the validation is successful it's shown as RETURN, if it's not successful it's shown as ESC. If the press have been in other setting, it will be edit.

Validation of the setting will always be successful if the setting is a listed setting, but can fail if it is a numeric setting. The following type of information can be provided, allowing you to properly edit the setting or cancel the operation.
