Visualize signal flow and timing on the network

The Signal Flow Diagram replaces the old wire connections shown on prints with animated GOOSE signals captured on a timeline that can be replayed one event at a time.  Tool tips on the signal lines show time stamps for the events on that signal. To determine exact timing between signals, see the Logic Analyzer (below).

Monitor Missing/Duplicate/Extra GOOSE Streams from the SCL File

Monitoring GOOSE message streams has never been easier! The built-in GOOSE Tracker tool matches streams on the wire with their definitions in the SCL file so  you can quickly and easily monitor for: 

  • Missing/duplicate/extra GOOSE streams from the SCL File
  • Dropped states
  • Missed retransmissions
  • Timeouts
  • Simulated messages
  • Dataset definitions in each GOOSE message match those defined in the SCL file

Find Out-of-Date SCL Configuration in Devices

System errors due to IEDs with out-of-date configuration files used to require tedious and time consuming comparisons. But not any longer!  The Test Suite Pro Compare Model tool automatically performs a discovery of each IED and compares it to the SCL file, and notifies you of any conflicts.

  • View differences at each level in the model hierarchy
  • Group and Filter by category

Troubleshoot Potential SCL File Issues

Finding obscure SCL file errors is a tedious process and can lead to erratic behavior. Test Suite Pro provides an easy, intuitive way to discover the source of these errors. 

The SCL Verify tool can be configured to report only SCL file errors that are known to cause a problem in the target system.

  • Group results by Severity, Test, or Message
  • Select an error to show the corresponding line in the SCL Viewer window
