Center for shared use of scientific equipment

The center of the shared use of scientific equipment was established to conduct high-quality experimental research, testing, adjustment, and calibration of hardware and software in the scientific direction “Energy automation and informatization”.

The Head of the Center: Candidate of engineering sciences, senior researcher  Slynko Volodymyr Mefodiyovych.

The main areas of the Center’s work are

– measurement of electromagnetic parameters (current, voltage, their harmonics and symmetrical components) of electric power objects, such as generators, power transformers and autotransformers, reactors, high-voltage switches, etc.;

– diagnostics of the relay protection devices and emergency control automatics of power systems;

– metrological examination of hardware and software for determining the parameters of operating modes of electric power facilities, for measuring the parameters of electrical energy and monitoring its quality;

– carrying out synchronous measurements of electrical parameters in a unified astronomical time format using GPS signal receivers.

Capabilities of the Center

  • Conduction of the precision metrological measurements and equipment calibration, high-accuracy monitoring of electrical energy parameters using FLUKE 6100А, a three-phase electrical power calibrator, which ensures the measurements’ consistency and repeatability and the technology of their conduction in accordance with the certain standards. FLUKE 6100 allows to synthesize electric power sources with non-standard characteristics of the wide spectrum and range with the formation of different harmonics (up to 100 simultaneously).
  • Conduction of experimental researches and testing of automation and relay protection devices using the DOBLE F6150, a power system simulator, which allows high-precision modeling and simulation of the power system, while reproducing the coordinated in time processes by using GPS. Also, this device is used to diagnose and control the characteristics of emergency event recorders by dynamically testing with sinusoidal test signals and simulating transient processes, by creating system’s computational model, generating harmonics, aperiodic component, and oscillations.
  • Calibration of various measuring devices by means of the OMICRON СМС 256 plus test complex – a universal calibrator, the high accuracy of which allows to test the PMU characteristics necessary to meet the ІЕЕЕ С37.118 requirements for synchrophasors. The OMICRON СМС 256 plus complex also monitors and measures the parameters of electric power systems, high-precision synchronized means for measuring current, voltage, power, phase, and frequency during a long period time.
  • Recording and analysis of all typical signals (voltages, currents, status signals) and messages from the communication network at the substation by OMICRON DANEO 400, a hybrid measuring system. Also, DANEO 400 measures the signals in both environments and can provide information to assess their correct interaction. The device records signal tracks by receiving information about the operating state via analog and digital channels.

Availability of special software that allows you to monitor selected parameters of the experiment in real time and receive all necessary metrological characteristics in electronic format after processing the measurement results.
