Data analysis is the key to understanding and solving engineering problems on the distribution system.
PMI offers three types of software tools to speed the analysis process, and help manage the wealth of information available from modern power quality recorders and distribution sensors. These software suites and how they are best used are described in this paper.
These software suites are ProVision, Canvass and PQ Canvass. ProVision is a PC based platform which provides detailed PQ investigations and complex data analysis for all PMI recorders. Canvass, intended for PMI's Boomerang and Cell Revolution, analyzes distribution systems, voltage regulation and more. PQ Canvass works with PMI's Cell Guardian for PQ alerting and investigating.
While all three suites can display stripcharts, histograms, and daily profiles, and also show tabular reports, their best uses are different, and they work with different types of equipment...
