Scope

This document describes in more detail one way of engineering and gives a clearer
understanding how engineering procedures when using the template functionality in the
SAB600 tool can be done in a more efficient way. In this document, the engineering
approach with the .cid files is described.
PCM600 is used as the engineering tool for IED engineering.

Introduction

A separate engineering manual for the SAB600 is available on the product pages of
software tool. This document describes more in detail the topic related to How to use
templates in SAB600. To give a better picture of how this function can be utilized what
benefits it brings, how the engineering of COM600 can be done in a more user friendly way
with time savings during the engineering and how this functionality can be used with the
new projects where COM600 engineering is required.
The template functionality is basically usable at the beginning of the engineering when
importing the new bay to the SAB600 tool, that is, at the first step of the engineering of the
COM600.
As already mentioned, the engineering approach of the SAB600 is done:
1. by using .cid files
.cid Configured IED Description file is one of the files that can be exported from
the IED engineering tool; it contains the information about one IED
Engineering approaches will be described in the next chapters of this document.

NOTE: For an easier understanding of the approach, follow only the content of this
document and it will give a basic understanding of what is required to fulfil in each step to
have the Template functionality utilized.

SAB600 engineering approach by using .CID files

This chapter describes step by step the engineering process in relation to the use of the
Template functionality in SAB600 with the .cid file approach.
The picture below gives a brief overview of how the engineering with .cid files is done:

Figure. 1.1 Engineering approach in SAB600 with .cid files


3.1

1st step - exporting .cid files from the IED engineering tool

All the .cid files representing all IEDs communicating to the COM600 have to be
exported. From the IED engineering tool, the .cid files have to be exported per each panel.
When the IEDs are configured in the PCM600, right-click the IED level in each panel
and select Export to export it into the .cid format:

In the File name text box, type a unique name, for example its bay designation, to make
its later location easier, and click Save:

This step needs to be repeated based on the number of the panels that need to be
configured and included in the SAB600 project, for as many times as there are IEDs in the
project structure.
3.2

2nd step - creating structure in the SAB600 tool

Next step is to create a project in the SAB600 tool, define the structure of the project
and import one of the typical bays.
Typical bay is a typical representative in the project from the configuration/logic
point of view, so it is a unique panel which is more times repeated inside the substation (e.g.
Motor, Transformer panels etc),

Create structure down to the substation level. Import the needed OPC servers and other
devices according to project needs.

3rd step - importing the first typical bay to the configuration

Export the finalized typical bay .cid file to your hard drive. Give it a unique name to help
localize it later and click Save.

Figure 1.7 Export of upgraded typical bay in .cid format

This process of creating typical bays is done as many times as there are typical panels
identified in the project.
The basic idea is to engineer the typical panels at the first stage and export their upgraded
.cid files to the hard drive, so that these upgraded .cid files can be reused later.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These .cid-exported files can be kept as templates for future
projects. The only relation to a template is the IED series, which has to be the same as the
one which is going to use this information as a template (If different IED types inside IED
series are used, all data connections has be remapped manually, and *.cid file will be not
effected by the structure of template *.cid ! ). The more projects are made with the template
feature, the easier the engineering will be at the end, just a good overview of the available

templates has to be kept. Also, these templates can be shared within the engineering group,
so that different people do not need to create new ones and some standard level is kept
within the engineering group.
3.4

4th step - importing other panels and calling out templates of pre-edited bays

All the typical panels in the SAB600 project structure are ready and they are saved on
the hard drive. The rest of the panels, which should be visualized in the project, can be
inserted, and the configurations to these new panels can be called out and reused based on
their relation to the typical bay .cid files. All the panels do not need to be reengineered but
the common part for these panels can be reused.
When importing the new bay, the updated .cid files (typical .cid files) from which the
substation information is taken have to be marked and indicated properly.

Figure 1.9 Template function will be used with next import (on left side before selection,
on right side after the selection and call-out of the template functionality)
-Select the file which is representing that new bay (additional to the typical ones, which
are already inserted and modified), according to the Figure 1.10.
-Select Import substation information from a separate template. The system asks
automatically to which file we are referring as a template.
- Select the representative of the upgraded .cid file, which is used as a template for this
new imported file.

Selecting of proper template file, stored previously on the hard drive

After importing, some minor adjustments in the setting or parameters are still needed
depends on selected template, but the major part of the configuration common for the two
bays is in the shape as it was done for the template bay.
This process needs to be repeated for all the following imports, that is, while importing
the rest of the bays to the SAB600 project.
3.5

5th step - Minor adjustments in imported additional files

As mentioned in the previous step (4th step), some minor adjustments are still needed in
each panel, based on project needs.
The engineering effort should be smaller compared to the way if each panel is engineered
separately and the workload is doubled or tripled if same steps are repeated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In case you need to update only already imported *.cid file of
particular IED, its enough to import the new *.cid with same procedure as described in 3rd
step and during import to mark Do not import substation information:

Figure 1.11
Replace existing *.cid file with new without destroying existing
configuration
If you use this selection you will not destroy the existing structure of *.cid file, Singleline Diagram and all data connections will be taken from the previous *.cid file which
contained them. Only the new connections need to be remapped manually or replaced.
