Viewing GOOSE Streams

After the GOOSE Tracker starts, the table of GOOSE streams will be updated to show current status. Here are some of the columns displayed:

  • Valid - this indicates if messages from the GOOSE stream have been received and the stream has not timed out
  • Is Subscribed To - this indicates if 61850 Test Suite Pro has subscribed to receive GOOSE events for this stream. The GOOSE Event Viewer shows received GOOSE events.
  • Num Timeouts - this indicates how many times the GOOSE stream has timed out
  • Found in File - this indicates that the GOOSE stream on the wire has been matched to a GOOSE control block in the SCL file. If this is False, this could indicate that an IED's GOOSEcontrol block is mis-configured.
  • Resolved From File - this indicates that the GOOSE control block was fully resolved using the data model from the SCL file.
  • Duplicate - this indicates that this GOOSE stream is a duplicate indicating that two IEDs are publishing the same GOOSE
