Creating a Custom Display

The Custom Display can be used to create a single line diagram or visualize other substation data from multiple IEDs.

Multiple custom displays can be created for a workspace. These custom displays are saved as part of the workspace so that they can be loaded with the workspace.

Adding Data Objects to the Custom Display

1) Select the Data Miner tool on the left side and select data objects

2) Select the Custom Display on the right side

3) Drag data objects from the Data Miner onto the Custom Display. This will add the data objects to the display as a graphical tile.

4) The value (and time/quality if available) for the data object is retrieved using GOOSE, reports, or polling based on how the Data Retrieval Method is set.

Example: in the example below, Report and Polled are selected as data retrieval methods. When the object is added to the display, the tool establishes a connection to the IED with this data and requests the data from the IED through a report (if available) or by polling the data object directly from the IED. GOOSE could be used if selected.

Add Single Line Symbols

Symbols for a single line diagram are located in the Palette on the right. These can be added by dragging a dropping to the Custom Display.

Add Custom Labels

Custom labels can be added from the Palette.
