Optimum Maintenance Management of Protection Systems with OMICRON's ADMO

Proper functioning of the protection system has a major impact on the reliability of the bulk electric system. Cost-effective maintenance management in the field of protection engineering requires IT-supported planning and organization. ADMO, the tailor-made and easy-to-use database software for central planning and administration of all the inspection and maintenance work on protective system, helps users keep track of scheduled maintenance, and facilitates all of the documentation related to it with minimum effort and maximum efficiency. For all assets managed with ADMO, asset data, location, maintenance cycles and all associated test documents are stored and available at any time. ADMO supports the requirements of the new NERC PRC-005-2 standard "Protection System Maintenance".

Every protection relay requires an individually configured setting. The settings management process involves different individuals or groups of individuals that work together and coordinate their actions. There are a lot of related tasks which have to be considered, coordinated and tracked. Setting calculation for an individual relay needs to consider the characteristics of the network, the protected object and settings of other relays. Regulatory requirements, protection concepts and company standards need to be met and documented. With ADMO, users can conveniently and securely manage file versions while capturing the changes and the reasons behind each change. ADMO allows them to manage the condition of status revision, planned setting changes and settings currently active in the relay.

Relay testing during commissioning and maintenance plays an important role for settings verification. In many cases there are some changes during commissioning or a final setting value can only be determined during commissioning. ADMO enables users to detect which utilities need their firmware versions to be upgraded at a glance prior to the commissioning process. In ADMO, the file that's required for the firmware upgrade is attached to the commissioning event. Thus, users can easily access it from their offline copy of the database. During a commissioning event, users also have access to the setting revision that needs to be applied and can efficiently document all of the changes during commissioning.
