Omicron has announced the latest update to Test Universe, with version 4.30 bringing a whole host of new features to help users. 

Support for the latest functions from IEC 61869-9 and IEC 61850-9-2 Ed2.1

The new version 4.30 of Test Universe, Omicron’s solution for advanced settings-based protection testing, expands the possibilities when testing with Sampled Values (SV). Configurable datasets with up to 32 values are now supported. The output of the Optional Fields offers new settings and the scope has been adapted to the latest developments in the IEC standard. The generation of up to three SV streams is now also possible with the CMC430.

Extended functionality of the client/server module

For tests that require a large number of binary outputs or even the use of several ISIO200 devices, the virtual binary outputs are now also supported. Furthermore, control operations can be performed for excitation of the devices under test. In addition, the reuse of tests has been improved, device names can now be renamed easily. 

New start page and other improvements

The revised design of the start page simplifies access to both the OMICRON Control Center (OCC) and the Protection Testing Library (PTL) for performing automated tests as well as to the most frequently used test modules. Two new states have been added to the automated evaluation of test results in the OCC for clearer visualisation. In addition to improvements based on customer feedback, the usability and testing procedure of the PQ test templates have been optimised.

Omicron Test Universe 4.30 will be available from September 2021.
