Step 4: Monitoring Simulation Results with ScopeView

See also: ScopeView

In the HYPERSIM toolbar, click ScopeView.

See Overview of ScopeView for a detailed description of ScopeView options.

For this tutorial, open a prepared template.

Click the folder icon with a T in the upper right corner, and browse to the directory: C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\HYPERSIM and select the xml template file HVAC_500kV_6Bus.xml.

The acquisition parameters are saved along with the template, so there is no need to apply changes for this tutorial.

However, here are the basics for acquisition parameters:

You can bring up the Acquisition Parameters by pressing the designated button on the toolbar.

Start TimeTime at which the acquisition starts after pressing the Play button, in seconds.
Time LengthDuration of the acquisition, in seconds.
Sampling RateNumber of samples per second used to represent a signal. This number must be an integer multiple of the step size. Otherwise, a linear interpolation of the data points is processed by the acquisition spooler before sending the data to ScopeView (i.e. before the graphs appear).


# AcquisitionNumber of consecutive acquisitions to process. This mode is used specifically with events programmed to change over multiple acquisitions, such as incremental, Gaussian or uniform Gaussian (in the breaker model).
SyncIf checked, as soon as you press Play, the acquisition spooler waits for the voltage (at the bus to which the POW is attached) to cross a specific level (by default, 0) on a specific phase (by default, A), with a specific slope (by default, positive). 

Only then will the acquisition start, as well as the timing for the various events programmed.

TriggerIf checked, the various events programmed occur.
ContIf checked, acquisitions are performed continuously.

 After setting the appropriate acquisition parameters, start an acquisition. The results should appear in the scope window.

  • A fault occurs on Bus WED7 on phase A at 0.028 second. The protection system isolates the line by opening line breakers at 0.1 second.
  • The fault is cleared and the line is brought back to service at 0.2 seconds.
  • Fault currents as well as bus voltages and breaker currents (for both sides of the line) can be monitored in ScopeView.
