Sequence of Events Recorder & Playback

Monitor   Predict   Control
Sequence of Events Playback is especially useful for root cause and effect investigations, improvement of system operations, exploration of alternative actions, and replay of what-if scenarios. ETAP Event Recorder & Playback capabilities translate into reduction of maintenance costs and prevention of costly shutdowns.

Event Recorder & Playback Key Features

  • Recording the sequence of events (SOE & SER)
  • Replay Archived Historian Data
  • Improve Operator Knowledge
  • Predict System Behavior On-Demand
  • Investigate Cause & Effect
  • Explore Alternative Actions
  • Replay “What If” Scenarios



Sequence of Events Playback Historian

Sequence of Event (SOE) provides a complete picture of the electrical network from the archived data. This includes playback of a previously recorded monitored data, calculated system parameters, sequence of events, and message log.

Sequence of Event Recorder (SER) provides seamless retrieval of data from the ETAP historian for any events from any ETAP console. The playback data is stored in an ODBC/SQL database and can be transferred to any user with the appropriate authorization.

Sequence of Events Playback Console

The system operator can control playbacks to re-run at original or accelerated speeds, single-step, fast-forward, or rewind through the message log. Playback resolution is operator controlled and determined by the scan rate of field devices. Since full simulation capabilities are available to the system operator at any point during the replay, the operator can explore the effects of alternative actions at any point of recorded data.
