OPAL-RT's C37.118 slave I/O interface allows instantiating multiple C37.118 slave sessions that can be used to report data to a C37.118 master, which is typically a PDC (Phasor Data Concentrator). It has been implemented according to the IEEE Std C37.118.2-2011 standard. Using a standard network interface card, this protocol can be easily and rapidly integrated into any simulation model.
This driver provides an asynchronous TCP/IP communication interface and an IP aliasing mechanism allowing to assign different IP addresses to each slave/outstation instance even if a single physical network interface (i.e., ethernet port) is used.
Product Selection Guide
C37.118 Slave requires software license OP3271, which comes with 50 data points (Visit this website more information on data points). If additional data points are required, then they may be added via product OP3050.
Since real-time simulators come with one available ethernet port, if additional physical ethernet ports are required on the real-time simulator, these can be added via kit. Note that for applications requiring many ethernet ports, the OP4510 platform is not recommended.
C37.118 Slave can be added to real-time simulators without the need of additional hardware but a time synchronization modules to maintain high-precision synch and time stamping may be required depending on the application. For more information on precision timing, please visit the following page.
