OMICRON's Test Universe software provides a variety of automated testing possibilities in dedicated modules especially designed for individual test object functions.

Test Universe Software
Automatic Reporting All test modules of the Test Universe software have a common element – the reporting function: Each module provides a fully formatted test report. Depending on the module the results come from, data is entered in tabular and/or graphical form. If several modules are used within the OCC to comprise a test, each module adds its specific piece of data to the overall report. After testing is finished, test results and assessments are entered automatically to complete the report. Reports can easily be printed, saved on file or in a database, or exported to standard office applications using Rich Text Format (RTF) and TXT format. Customizing test reports based on individual requirements is easy. The visible content of test reports can be defined independently from the recorded data, by just selecting or deselecting items from the list. Recorded data will always remain available, regardless of whether the user chooses to include them in the reports. Defined report settings are quickly and easily generated, saved with a form name, and reloaded at a later time; company specific elements like logos etc., can easily be included. Exporting test results Besides the standard export formats TXT and RTF for further use of the data, such as in Microsoft Word, OMICRON Control Center documents provide the following two export formats for more extensive external post-processing of test data: The well-known CSV format and the XML (Extensible Markup Language) Data Export. CSV and XML Data Export are also available in all test modules in stand-alone mode. XML is a character based data format that supports a non-proprietary method of interfacing the test data with any third-party database (e.g. Microsoft Access 2003, Microsoft SQL Server).

Protection Testing Library For mastering the challenge of testing modern multifunctional relays, OMICRON provides a library of protection testing templates, the Protection Testing Library (PTL). This library offers OMICRON customers access to prepared test plans and relay models of various manufacturers (ABB, Areva, GE, Reyrolle, SEL, Siemens, Toshiba, etc.) as well as parameter import filters for specific protection devices, which includes • relay modeling – i.e. calculation of the characteristics (such as zone diagram, ...) and tolerances from the relay settings – taking into account the technical characteristics as specified in the relay manual • import filter for importing setting values from the relay's software or from setting calculation tools • test routine for common relay functions. This not only helps to save the time normally needed to manually create the relay characteristics and test templates but also let users benefit from OMICRON's testing know how such as on how to model and test specific relays and their functions in the Test Universe software. New templates are continuously being added to the PTL and are available for customers to download from the OMICRON website.

Languages The Test Universe software is available in 13 standard languages. Changing the system language is possible at any time just by selecting the requested language in the “language selection". All languages are automatically installed; no installation of any additional software components is required. Especially in international projects, clients many times wish to get a report in a different language than the commissioning engineer's preferred working language. This is easily possible for all available standard languages. When the system language is changed and an existing test document is re-opened, the test report is automatically switched to the new system language set.

Quick and easy PC controlled manual testing • Simultaneous control of all available test signals (voltage and current outputs) of the CMC test set in magnitude, phase, and frequency (max. 22 channels possible 1) • Steady state, step or ramp function for all quantities • Fault Calculator providing different operation modes • Timing measurements • Vector view and impedance plane QuickCMC provides an easy and intuitive user interface, while also offering powerful functions for performing PC controlled manual tests for all kinds of protection relays, measurement transducers and other equipment. Output quantities can either be entered in the classical way as voltages and currents, or by using input modes for absolute or relative impedance values, powers or symmetrical components. Regardless of which input mode is chosen, Fault Calculator transfers the values into voltages and currents to be generated by a CMC and/or an amplifier unit. Output functions QuickCMC provides simple control of test signals. Output values may be defined numerically, or by dynamically positioning the elements in the vector diagram or the interactive impedance plane with the mouse. The module includes the Fault Calculator which automatically converts the entered values to determine the correct output quantities (voltage, current and phase angle) for single-, two- and three-phase faults, power flow, or symmetrical components. The residual voltage and current is also automatically calculated and generated. According to the selected mode, the values are displayed graphically in the vector or impedance view, as well as numerically in a table. Channels where no fault model is assigned can be set without any restriction (unbalanced signal generation, variable frequency for each individual channel, etc.). The Unit Manager function allows for easy toggling between the handling of values in primary/secondary, absolute/relative, or seconds/cycles. Step or Ramp Mode Step or Ramp Mode operation is provided for finding limiting values, such as pick-up and drop-off, or starting of a relay. In Step Mode, the selected quantities (currents, voltages, impedances, power, etc.) are increased or decreased by a specified value with a mouse click. In Ramp Mode, the defined step is repeated until an input toggles (e.g. when the relay trips). The pulse ramping functionality allows easy testing of protection elements with overlapping characteristics (e.g. testing the I >> threshold). Input/measuring functions 10 binary inputs can be used to monitor dry or wet contacts and make corresponding time measurements. The time measurement may alternatively trigger on the external interruption of the generated currents, allowing direct assessment of CB contacts. The output values of a transducer connected to the analog DC inputs can also be displayed. Reporting Results of tests with QuickCMC can be stored for later use. Similar to all other testing modules in the OMICRON Test Universe software, the report style and content can be customized. In addition, the QuickCMC reporting feature provides a “notepad” function, so that individual comments may be added to the report.
