Orion WEBserver / SVG Graphics Design and Application


A one-day course to provide instruction to develop SVG HMI screens and serve them out from Orion. The course includes configuration of WEBserver protocols (HTTP and XML) and the Inkscape graphics development package. A library of sample screen elements and sample screens will be provided to students. The course also covers the set up of two pre-configured Orion web pages: one to display Archived Orion data (including sequence of events data and load profile data) and the other to display real-time alarms: Alarm Annunciation. Laboratory exercises will complement the lecture material, allowing each student to develop a one-line diagram with real-time data displayed and with breaker control, and to load screens into Orion and to serve the screen out to browser. Web pages for SOE and Alarm Annunciation will also be developed and served out.
