Configuring Advanced PQ using ION Setup

Use ION Setup to configure your meter’s power quality (PQ) monitoring and logging settings for IEC 61000-4-30, EN 50160, IEEE 519 and Rapid Voltage Change (RVC).

The meter’s PQ frameworks are designed with logical dependencies. IEC 61000-4-30 must be enabled first if you want to monitor and record PQ parameters for EN 50160 or IEEE 519. In addition, the Sag/Swell feature must be enabled in order to monitor and detect disturbances such as RVC.

NOTICE
Data Loss
  • Enable IEC 61000-4-30 before enabling other power quality monitoring and recording features.
  • Enable Sag/Swell before configuring power quality disturbance related features.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in data loss.
  1. Start ION Setup.
  2. Open the Setup Assistant for your meter.
  3. Navigate to Power Quality > Advanced PQ Logging.
  4. Select 4-30 Enable and click Edit to configure your meter’s IEC 61000-4-30 logging parameters.
  5. Configure the settings as required:

    IEC 61000-4-30 Setup

    Parameter Description
    Enabled Select if you want to enable IEC 61000-4-30 monitoring.
    NOTE: This option must be enabled when monitoring EN 50160 or IEEE 519 parameters.
    Threshold Specifies the percentage of nominal voltage that defines a disturbance. For example, if you set this to 10% of 120 V nominal, the disturbance occurs when the voltage dips to 12 V and below.
    Hysteresis Specifies the percentage above the Threshold that defines the end of the disturbance. For example, if you set this to 2%, the end of the disturbance occurs when the voltage rises to (10% + 2%) of nominal, or 14.4 V and above.
    Log 4-30 3s measurements Select if you want to enable IEC 61000-4-30 3-second interval data logging.
    Log 4-30 10s measurements Select if you want to enable IEC 61000-4-30 10-second interval data logging.
  6. Click Send to save your changes.

    The Advanced PQ Logging screen shows the new configuration.

  7. Select EN 50160 Enable.
    If you want to delete all logged EN 50160 data, click Reset, then click Yes to confirm.
  8. Click Edit to configure your meter’s EN 50160 logging parameters.
    NOTE: You must enable IEC 61000-4-30 before the meter can start monitoring EN 50160 parameters.
  9. Configure the settings as required:

    EN50160 Configuration Setup

    Parameter Description
    Enabled Select if you want to enable EN 50160 monitoring.
    Nominal Voltage Specifies the nominal voltage value used for EN 50160.
    Nominal Frequency Specifies the nominal frequency used for EN 50160.
    Log EN50160 measurements Select if you want to log EN 50160 parameters. Note that you need to enable EN 50160 monitoring in order to log the parameters.
  10. Click Send to save your changes.

    The Advanced PQ Logging screen shows the new configuration.

  11. Select 519 Enable and click Edit to configure your meter’s IEEE 519 logging parameters.
    NOTE: You must enable IEC 61000-4-30 before the meter can start monitoring IEEE 519 parameters.
  12. Configure the settings as required:

    IEEE 519 Configuration

    Parameter Description
    Nominal Voltage Displays the nominal voltage value used for IEEE 519.
    NOTE: If you change the Nominal Voltage, you must return to this setup screen and manually update the IEEE 519 configuration.
    <Bus voltage options> Select the bus voltage at the point of common coupling.

    Select Disabled if you do not want to log IEEE 519 related data.

  13. After specifying the bus voltage, click Next to configure the IEEE 519 current parameters.

    IEEE 519 Configuration

    Parameter Description
    Maximum short circuit current Enter the maximum short-circuit current at the point of common coupling.
    Maximum demand load current Enter the maximum demand load current at the point of common coupling.
    Ratio This displays the maximum short-circuit to maximum demand load ratio. This is used to determine the voltage and current distortion limits.
  14. Click Next to view the screen that displays the voltage and current distortion limits for the harmonic content.
    Harmonics 2 to 50 and THD/TDD are displayed, with the corresponding set limits for Voltage Distortion % and Current Distortion %.
  15. Click Finish to save your changes.

    The Advanced PQ Logging screen shows the new configuration.

  16. Select RVC Enable and click Edit to configure your meter’s RVC (Rapid Voltage Change) feature.
    NOTE: You must enable the Sag/Swell module before the meter can start monitoring and detecting RVC.
  17. Configure the settings as required:

    Rapid Voltage Change Setup

    Parameter Description
    Enabled
    • Disabled means ION Setup has detected that the Sag/Swell module is disabled. Go to Alarming > Sag/Swell and enable Sag/Swell first, in order for the meter to detect RVC.

    • Yes means RVC monitoring is on. Make sure the Sag/Swell module is enabled, otherwise RVC will not be detected.

    • No means RVC monitoring is off.

    Threshold Specifies, as a percentage, the RMS voltage limit that must be exceeded for an RVC event to occur.
    Hysteresis Specifies, as a percentage, the difference in magnitude between the start and end thresholds for an RVC event.
  18. Click Send to save your changes.

    The Advanced PQ Logging screen shows the new configuration.
