Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) unveiled a new release of its ACSELERATOR Meter Reports SEL-5630 software. This version includes support for dynamic viewing tools, faster database interrogation and offline demonstrations.
The software, says SEL, helps users organize, visualize and optimize energy usage, using data from SEL-734 advanced metering systems, SEL-735 power quality and revenue meters and SEL751A feeder protection relays. It trends energy consumption data, enabling operators to avoid peak demand charges and optimize a schedule that moves overlapping electric processes to off-peak hours. Additionally, the software offers tools to diagnose voltage disturbances using historical data, so the user can assess the impact and improve system operation. The company said with ACSELERATOR Meter Reports, anyone can visualize data, filter events, add labels to data points and find the max, min or difference in a user-friendly interface.
