2. Introduction WSOS is a software package developed by Nu-Lec Industries to support their range of automatic circuit reclosers and sectionalisers with intelligent electronic controllers. More recently WSOS has developed its own features for which the controllers must provide software support.
3. Features This presentation provides an introduction to the following WSOS software functions: User Defined Curves Automatic Data Retrieval Batch Change Configurable IOEX Configurable DNP3 Change of State Monitoring System
4. User Defined Curves This feature is two tools in one: Curve Viewer Curve Editor The Curve Viewer allows WSOS users to view standard and modified curves. The Curve Editor allows standard curves to be edited or new curves to be created graphically. This feature requires WSOS 4.14+
5. Curve Viewer Overview The Curve Viewer is designed to show graphically how a protection curves shape is affected when curve modifiers are applied. Phase and Earth protection settings can be modified in WSOS and the changes viewed straight away. Other curves can be displayed on the same graph to allow comparisons with settings for other trips on the same or other reclosers.
6. Viewing Curves To view a protection curve it is first necessary to select a protection group and a trip number/type from within WSOS to display the Trip 1, 2, 3, 4, Single Shot or Work Tag Settings screen From here the Curve Viewer can be launched by clicking the View Curve button.
7. Curve Viewer When launched the Curve Viewer displays the selected Trip numbers curve with all modifier settings applied. 300A 17.19s

11. Viewing Curve with Global Modifier Maximum Time 20.0s
12. Viewing Multiple Curves
13. User Defined Curve Editor Overview The curve editor is a Microsoft Excel based application launched from within WSOS. It is used to edit user defined protection curves by typing values into a table or by dragging individual points on the graph itself. Built-in functions allow the curve to be manipulated around a selected point on the curve. Range functions allow the curve to be modified across a number of points.

16. Select Comparison Curve to Open Select Comparison Curve
17. Creating New Curves The easiest way to create a new curve is to: load a comparison curve, match the User Defined Curve to it, Hide the Comparison Curve, make edits to the User Defined Curve, save the curve under a new name.
18. Select Match Hide Comparison
19. Save Curve As
20. Select User Defined Curves Curve Selection attaches user defined curves to WSOS switchgear files which can then be written to switchgear controllers.
21. Automatic Data Retrieval
22. Automatic Data Retrieval Uploading history files such as the Event Log and Maximum Demand records from remote switchgear is a costly time consuming exercise. Automatic Data Retrieval was developed to automate this process.
23. Automatic Date Retrieval Operation ACR001 ACR002 ACR003 Configuration: ACR001 Event Log Start Time ACR002 Event Log 02:00 ACR002 Event Log Data Retrieval Options: Event Log Average Demand Weekly Demand Monthly Demand Configurable History Read Switchgear Settings Compare Switchgear Settings PC Clock Synchronisation 01:5801:5902:00 Event Log Event Log Event Log
24. Automatic Data Retrieval - Overview Automatic Data Retrieval allows selected history files to be automatically uploaded from selected switchgear during pre- determined time periods on a regular basis. The current status of the upload procedure for each switchgear can be displayed by WSOS. If WSOS can communicate with the switchgear this feature can be used. A level 50 WSOS licence is required for ADR.
25. Automatic Data Retrieval Screens There are three ADR screens that are launched from the Customise menu. Option Configuration Select which data you want uploaded from each device. Switchgear Selection Select when and how often to upload from each device. Switchgear Status A summary on the status of the Automatic Data Retrieval for each device.
26. Selecting ADR Screens
27. Option Configuration Screen This screen is used to configure what is to be automatically uploaded for each switchgear. Communications settings for ADR can be different to the default settings for the switchgear.

29. Switchgear Selection Screen This screen is used to configure what day and times the data is to be automatically uploaded for each switchgear.
30. Switchgear Selection Setup This screen is used to configure what day and times the data is to be automatically uploaded for each switchgear.

33. Batch Change
34. Batch Change The WSOS Batch Change feature allows remote users to make changes to critical settings in a group of automatic circuit reclosers and/or load break switches where these changes are deemed necessary due to expected events such as bushfires or storms. The required setting changes for each switchgear device can be configured in advance at the remote WSOS computer and the changes for all devices executed with a single command or at a predetermined time.

42. Input/Output Expander Module (IOEX Module)
43. Input/Output Expander Module (IOEX Module) The Input Output Expander (IOEX) card enables easy interfacing of additional external equipment to Nu-Lecs Pole Top Control Cubicle (PTCC). This module allows the power utility to connect items such as external protection relays or an RTU as required. The IOEX has: 12 optically isolated inputs and 8 voltage free output contacts.
44. IOEX Standard Map Inputs and Outputs Standard Mapping has 8 used inputs and 4 spare Some inputs have logic conditions applied Standard Mapping uses all 8 available outputs. Output 8 operates according to applied logic. Inputs Outputs
45. IOEX Standard Map Inputs and Outputs Up to 8 outputs can be configured. Each output can be configured to operate for a given status. Outputs Output 1 Switchgear Tripped Output 4 Lockout Output 8 Maintenance Required
46. Configurable IOEX Custom maps can now be created for an IOEX card and loaded into a CAPM directly from WSOS. The types of actions that can be mapped to each input or output is dependent on the software version loaded in the CAPM. When the tool is started the user is asked to input the software version. This is then used to retrieve a valid set of points to use when constructing logic within the tool.

48. Custom Mapping
49. Configurable IOEX Scope The Configurable IOEX tool allows WSOS users to generate custom I/O mappings for an Input Output Expander Card (IOEX). Logic can be applied to each point with up to five sets of logic or actions for each input and one trigger action for each output. The Configurable IOEX Tool can only create mappings that are compatible with CAPM software versions 027-07.xx (CAPM 4) and 527-07.xx (CAPM 5) or higher. The Tool can be used to read mappings from previous versions of software but can only create files for use with the newer software versions.
50. Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3)
51. Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3) DNP3 is a communications protocol commonly used in the Electricity Supply Industry for the control and monitoring of switchgear devices. The Nu-Lec DNP3 implementation allows users to interface their controllers to a SCADA system with a DNP3 master station. The implementation includes a standard map of points for this purpose. Binary Input Points Analogue Input Points Counter Points Binary Output Points Analogue Output Points
52. Standard ACR Map
53. Configurable DNP3 Custom DNP3 maps can now be created and loaded into a controller directly from WSOS. The mappings and I/O logic are created using the tool and saved to a DNP3 mapping file on the WSOS co
