Protection Suite v5 is the modern replacement of Doble ProTesT software that now also replaces Doble F6TesT software.
Protection Suite Administrator Database
PowerBase Direct Module
Protection Suite 5.0 provides a robust platform for a variety of test techniques:
Protection system equipment tests available in Protection Suite 5.0:
Transducer and Metering Devices
Provides an interface to record battery configurations and capture inspection data.
Protection Suite 5.0 has multiple ways to capture notes and work with documentation within test plans. The tools include an embedded word processor and test steps specifically designed to open/edit document references or custom forms built within the application. These tools allow companies to continue use of instituted documentation, such as PDF test forms and spreadsheets, and save manually-entered test data into PSX files.
Create messages that display when Protection Suite users initiate particular tests. Embed pictures to show connections or other visual details. Require written responses from testers at certain points during a test procedure. Import/export spreadsheets into tests that recognize embedded formulas as testers enter values in particular fields.
Protection Suite 5.0 test plans also provide the ability to run external programs and exchange data. Use this capability to:
Test IEDs with Protection Suite 5.0 and your F6150sv power system simulator. Protection Suite and the F6150sv support virtual I/O (GN/GP) options to match IEC 61850 test configurations. Up to 1024 GN and 1024 GP are allowed.
Use Doble 61850 TesT software to discover an IED (data model and configuration) and build a GCX file that contains the virtual inputs and outputs to test in the system logic. Use Protection Suite 5.0 to import the GCX file and reconfigure the F6150sv for network traffic scanning of GSE messages during IED tests. Protection Suite is used to configure the 6150sv test set to apply sampled values (SV) and GSE simulations to functionally test, receive status messages and collect data from IEC 61850-compliant devices.
Protection Suite stores data in XML files with the .psx extension. Each PSX file is the complete asset record of a given relay or other P&C device tested with Protection Suite. PSX files contain:
Protection Suite offers multiple solutions for data capture and management:
Protection Suite PSX files are the basis for reports. Generate Pass/Fail summaries and/or Test Detail report types and print/save as PDF, Word or Excel files. Use filters to narrow results to specific details for any search performed.
Protection Suite Admin DB provides a secure repository that tracks assignments of PSX files among individual users as they log into the database from Protection Suite. Authentications and upload/download recording simplify administrative supervision over team activities.
Protection Suite Admin DB is recommended for small-to-medium-sized teams with limited administrative resources. Protection Suite Admin DB is a Protection Suite license add-on that works with Advanced, Professional and Office editions and is available with v.5.2.
NOTE: Implementation requires the setup of a network server that will host the Protection Suite Admin DB database. This setup is not a service offered by Doble. Please consult your company’s IT department.
The PowerBase Direct Module connects Protection Suite software to the PowerBase database management system. PowerBase administrators attach PSX files into PowerBase relay records that export through PB Direct to be used with Protection Suite software.
PB Direct makes it possible for data that is managed in PowerBase to appear in Protection Suite PSX files while keeping existing Protection Suite macros in place. This non-disruptive management and productivity solution controls the start-to-finish procedures expected when performing work assignment tasks in addition to hands-on device testing.
The PB Direct module is a PowerBase v.7.2 feature that supports Protection Suite v.5.2.
