How to Use the LabVIEW Electrical Power Toolkit for Power Measurement and Analysis
The LabVIEW Electrical Power Toolkit is a software add-on for LabVIEW that provides VIs to help you create applications for measuring, analyzing, monitoring, and recording electrical power data and phenomena. You can use the toolkit with various NI hardware platforms, such as CompactRIO, CompactDAQ, and PXI, to perform power measurement, power quality measurement, synchrophasor measurement, and protection device implementation. The toolkit complies with several international standards for power measurement and analysis.
The Power Measurement VIs enable you to measure electrical power parameters and perform harmonic analysis on single-phase or three-phase systems. You can use these VIs to calculate parameters such as voltage, current, active power, reactive power, apparent power, power factor, frequency, total harmonic distortion (THD), and individual harmonics. You can also use these VIs to generate reports in HTML or PDF format.
Power Quality Measurement
The Power Quality VIs enable you to perform power quality measurement on single-phase or three-phase systems. You can use these VIs to measure parameters such as voltage dips and swells, voltage interruptions, voltage unbalance, flicker, rapid voltage changes (RVCs), and transients. You can also use these VIs to generate reports in HTML or PDF format.
The Synchrophasor VIs enable you to perform synchrophasor measurement on single-phase or three-phase systems. You can use these VIs to measure parameters such as phasors, frequency, rate of change of frequency (ROCOF), and positive sequence components. You can also use these VIs to stream synchrophasor data using the IEEE C37.118 protocol.
Protection Device Implementation
The Protection VIs enable you to implement protection devices on single-phase or three-phase systems using the CompactRIO platform. You can use these VIs to implement devices such as overcurrent relays, distance relays, differential relays, directional relays, and reclosing relays. You can also use these VIs to generate COMTRADE files for recording protection events.
How to Download and Install the Toolkit
You can download the LabVIEW Electrical Power Toolkit from the NI website[^1^]. The toolkit is compatible with LabVIEW 32-bit Full or Professional Development System. You also need to install the LabVIEW FPGA Module and the LabVIEW Real-Time Module if you want to use the toolkit with CompactRIO devices. If you want to use the toolkit with NI DAQ devices, you need to install NI-DAQmx driver software as well.
How to Access the Help and Examples
You can access the help for the toolkit from HelpÂ»LabVIEW Help in LabVIEW. The help provides information about the toolkit features, VIs, examples, and standards compliance. You can also find examples for the toolkit from HelpÂ»Find Examples in LabVIEW. The examples demonstrate how to use the toolkit VIs with different hardware platforms and applications.
