I don’t use SIEGate (look at it a long time ago but finally found that it was not requiered for what I want to do …).
My actual configuration :
- Server_A running OpenPDC 2.9.43 with 10+ PMU
- Server B running OpenHistorian 2.8.52
I’m using the STTP protocol with a subscription based input to make Server_B getting data from Server_A ; which is the easiest way (imho) to do so.
On OpenHistorian go to Inputs > Subscription Based Inputs > Create Internal Subscription and fill in the required information :
– Port must be 7165 for gathering data from OpenPDC.
– you can try ‘localhost’ instead of 127.0.0.1 for hostname if it doesn’t work.
- Then clic on Next then Save on the new Concentrator screen.
- Go to Inputs > Browse input devices ; then clic on the concentrator.
- On the concentrator screen, clic on Initialize : on the openHistorianConsole.exe you should see that the meta-data are synchronizing (if you encountered a timeout in the data-synchronization process ; maybe you should restart the openHistorian service ; then waiting 'till this synchronization going to the end). It may take several minutes.
When the meta-data synchronisation is finally at 100%, refresh your Inputs > Browse Input Devices screen and you should see your 2 PMU in it.
You can also use a custom output stream to open a port on OpenPDC side ; that the openHistorian will use to get the data.
On OpenPDC, go to Outputs > Concentrator Output Streams ; then create a new Output Stream :
Specify an Acronym, Name, type (ie : C37.118.-2011) and the TCP channel (the port on which the openHistorian is going to connect) as the following example :
Save this then clic on the ‘Device wizard’ link to add some PMU to your stream :
Then Enabled > Save > Initialize your output stream.
In OpenHistorian Manager, go to Input > Synchrophasor Device Wizard.
Use the Wizard to specify that you only have one communication channel and launch the connection builder. Use 127.0.0.1 as the Host IP, and the port number that you previously specified for the output stream in OpenPDC. Then select IEE C37.118-2011 protocol (or the one you’ve selected for your custom output stream) ; and the Access ID which I think is the ID Code specified in the custom output stream.
Let the Wizard make the connection and request the configuration.
If it works, you’ll have to put a PDC acronym / Name and you’ll see your PMU on the last screen of the Wizard :
I suggest to clic on each in order to check if the labels / types / phases are OK (on some previous versions of OpenPDC and OpenHistorian it wasn’t always) ; and put the right value if it’s not.
Then clic Finish to see your PMUs in the Input > Browse Input Device ; and check the Monitoring > Graph Measurement.
Also take a look at the http://localhost:8180 URL ; you’ll be able to access to Grafana and make some dashboards that are usefull to visualize and analyze data.
Hope this will help !
