Avacha Platform — is the basis of digital instrument transformers. Avacha provides IEC 61850 support for instrument transformers in the shortest-possible time with minimum investments.

Avacha — is the unified digital interface for different types of instrument transformers. An instrument transformer could have different rated voltage, operating principles, configuration, but have one and the same digital interface – Avacha.

Today Avacha is available in optical CTs and VTs by Profotech – one of the world’s leading optical instrument transformer manufacturers and currently being integrated with apparatus by other manufacturers.

TEKVEL, the developer of Avacha Platform, believe that the appearance of such a device on the market will help to significantly accelerate the process of creation and implementation of digital instrument transformers, as well as significantly improve their quality in the implementation of digital data transfer protocols. This development, ultimately, will create a more economical and technologically advanced electric grid facilities of the new generation of digital substations.

Disrespectful Sampled Values subscriber behaviour

Teaser: Some IEDs require that SV (or maybe GOOSE) messages on ingress port of the IED have proper VLAN tag (as configured in the subscription), thus resulting in failure to receive the untagged messages (or messages with another VLAN ID tag). Such behaviour of an IED is wrong but sometimes you can meet this. Read the full article to dig into the details.

When GOOSE can't fly!

Everyone who ever dealt with the commissioning of IEC 61850 based systems had situations when there were problems in establishing successful GOOSE communications between IEDs. The reasons for that are always different. There may be a fault of the commissioning engineer, a fault of the vendor or it may be a fault of both parties at the same time. We have faced such situation recently and this was the case when one could blame... decide yourself who is to blame in this situation, having read this note about nuances in configuring GOOSE-communications between IEDs of two different vendors.

GOOSE-messaging has been covered a lot in many technical papers and to add anything valuable to the subject is rather difficult. But we will try. And functional constrained data will help us with that.
