Enable an Orion user to program logic constructs using the NCD Configuration tool and programming environment using IEC 61131-3 languages supported with the Orion. Hands-on utilization of Orion, DDIO/DCIO, Logic Simulators, and NCD will be employed during the class exercises using online and offline simulation and debugging tools.
Review the latest cyber security guidelines for critical utility infrastructure (including NERC CIP), review threats to the Utility infrastructure, review current approaches to making IT infrastructures secure and train the utility engineer on how to configure the security features in the Orion.
Orion Alarm-Archive-Retentive Configuration and Application (AAR)
Learn how to archive data in Orion memory, setup the Orion SQL database, create web pages to serve out 1mS Sequence of Events Tables, create web pages to serve out Alarm Annunciation Tables and create and transfer .csv files containing archived data.
Bitronics® M871 can meet all of the Disturbance Monitoring and Reporting Requirements for NERC including Sequence of Event (SOE), Fault Recording, and Dynamic Disturbance Recording (DDR). This course will review the latest PRC-002 requirements and detail how the Bitronics product can be configured to meet requirements.
DNP3.0 Protocol and Application including Serial Communications Basics
Learn how the DNP3.0 protocol is structured and applied in electrical substations between IEDs, and between substations and control centers. Also learn the basics of serial and Ethernet communications in substations.
Train the utility professional on the theory, application and troubleshooting of Ethernet and associated application layer payloads transported within utility substations and between substations and control / engineering centers. The achievement of commissioning goals, through use of available tool sets, is the foundational objective of this course.
All our symposiums have been suspended due to COVID-19. Please keep checking back for updates as they become available. We now offer free bi-weekly Power Hours covering applications, best practices, and tips&tricks for Orion and Bitronics products. Please check here for upcoming Power Hours.
UBBA will bring the first LTE Plugfest to St. Louis in October to showcase the innovation, collaboration and interoperability of utility use cases on private LTE networks. Plugfest testing topics have been identified by the UBBA Use Cases & Testbeds working group along with the UBBA Plugfest Task Force. We will strive to engage all parts of the UBBA community with utilities providing field device controllers, vendors providing sensors, devices, modems, LTE core+RAN infrastructure, and integrators providing the head end testing capabilities.
