Verification and Supervision of communication networks for Utility Automation

by Matthias Wehinger and Fred Steinhauser, OMICRON electronics GmbH, Austria

Nowadays communication networks are an integral part of the utility automation systems.

All protection, automation, and control devices have to be online and communicating appropriately. Testing tools and techniques are needed to verify and supervise the operation of protection, automation, and control (PAC) systems. More
