Design and implementation of a Function Block configuration tool (English)
Abstract In high voltage substations there is an increasing demand for computerized equipment, and automation of operation and supervision. The future primary equipment will provide the possibility to collect more information and to provide better control for improved effectiveness.
Since ABB has got a large customer target, each product must be custom made to fulfil the customers (often from different countries) demands. Later these products will be configured by engineers who may not be familiar with the tools used at ABB. This is a very expensive and time consuming. To solve the problem, ABB was looking for a low cost, easy managed and more advanced replacement.
This report includes an investigation for a function block configuration tool based on Microsoft Visio. The tool is connected to a general database using ODBC for the latest ABB Substation Automation SW platform for protection in power transmission equipment.
The thesis report mainly contains a description of the functions and features that are requested. Then methods used to build the prototype is explained and at the end the result is presented.
At the same time the possibilities and problems that will arise from using ODBC based interface for control and monitoring of real-time systems were investigated.
