IRIG-B Distribution in Multiple Time Zones Simultaneously

Tekron was approached by an integrator who, in a single installation, required an IRIG-B signal with a local time offset, as well as a second signal with UTC time. In the power industry, such requirements are not common and for this reason, the client had originally installed two clocks – a costly solution to a seemingly simple problem. Tekron, with the TTM 01-G were able to provide a solution using a single clock, in a compact form factor. This highly cost-effective solution also helped the customer in reducing the risk of equipment failure within their network.

Thanks to all our customers, partners and visitors for a great DTech2016! See you all next year at Booth: 2047, DistribuTech 2017, Jan 31-Feb 02, San Diego Convention Center, SD, CA, USA.

Parallel Redundancy Protocol & Precision Time Protocol

Learn how an Engineering Procurement Company implemented a dual network arrangement using Parallel Redundancy Protocol and Precision Time Protocol to synchronize their client's end devices that did not support either PRP or PTP while keeping costs down and minimizing points of failure with the help of Tekron PRPTP Translator. This unique time sync solution connects directly with a PRP network and translates PTP packets into legacy time signals such as IRIG-B.

GPS Redundancy in Smart Substations

With the evolution of technologies such as Line Differential Protection, Phasor Measurement and Sampled Values, Smart Substations require a new unprecedented level of accuracy and time sync availability, not previously required in the Industry. The Transmission System Operators in Philippines required a GNSS Clock designed and built for substation applications. The solution required the Substation clock to provide time synchronization to facilitate their IEC 61850 aspirations (PTP Power Profile, NTP, Optical PPS), and in addition support legacy time protocols (IRIG-B, serial time strings, 1 per 10). Moreover, the system required multiple levels of failover; where in the event of GNSS outage, the clock will revert to the Telecommunications Network and sync to the PTP Telecom profile Grandmaster, or in the absence of PTP availability on the Telecommunications network, revert to its own internal Atomic Clock reference module.

Precision Time Protocol-PTP: Challenges & Solution

With the growing need to upgrade substations and other mission-critical applications through the implementation of Precision Time Protocol (PTP: IEEE 1588) while supporting the legacy IRIG-B time code, learn how a major U.S. utility on the East Coast managed to meet the challenging requirements with Tekron's NTS 03-E GPS clock and Tekron's PTP Translator.
