Interface Panel, ICCP
This a group of experts will discuss the nuances of ICCP, bi-directional ICCP using PI OPC, and other interface issues including MV90 (PGE has done extensive work here and will discuss their solution), COMTRADE files, the gamut. This will be an open discussion.
Initial Panel questions: (1) We are looking at using PI to archive our system frequency at a sub second rate, between .1 and .5 seconds. Is anyone currently doing this? (2)Discuss strategies for quality tags – e.g. the digital state tag can be a combination of status and quality.
