I have two servers both running OpenPDC 22.214.171.124.
Server A is sending 12 PMUs data to server B through a concentrator output stream (configured with the new IEEE C37.118-2011 option added in 2.9 version of OpenPDC).
Server B is received the 12 PMU data on a Concentrator device and 12 related devices.
This configuration has been made before upgrading to the 2.9.8 version, when only C37.118-2005 version of the protocol was available in the list for the output stream ; and it still working after changing it to -2011 version.
I recently added a 13rd PMU to Server A, then added it in the list of devices of the output concentrator stream. I then saved and initialized the output stream, expecting this new device to be automatically detected and added in Server B ; but it was not the case (even after ‘initialize’ the concentratror device on server B).
I then try to test the stream with PMU connection tester on server B (configured with C37.118-2011 protocol) and it works fine : I can see this 13rd PMU in the list and the phasors data related to it. I then create the .xml connection and config files in order to import them in the Server B OpenPDC ; using the Input Device Wizard. On step 1 I can specify the connection file and the C37.118-2011 protocol ; then going to the step 2. When I specify the Configuration File, I have the following error :
This error is still poping when I choose C37.118-2005 in the step 1 of the process.
Using the two .xml files in PMU connection tester (with the ‘File > Connection > Load’ and ‘File > Config File > Load’ menus is working fine).
So there seem to be two problems:
The addition of a new PMU in an output stream is not automatically taken over in the OpenPDc which uses this stream; and it no longer seems possible to add new PMUs via the device Wizard.
Using the walk-through process doesn’t work either : the requesting configuration process is going and going on ; then showing the following error message :
“ERROR : Response timeout occurred. Waited 60 seconds for Configuration Frame to arrive.”
Are you seeing the same problem? Is there one or more solutions to correct / work around the problem?
Thanks by advance for any help you could provide,
