An IEEE 1588 Performance Testing Dashboard for Power Industry Requirements



Julien M. Amelot, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Clement Vasseur, Jeffrey Fletcher, Dhananjay Anand, James Moyne


The numerous time synchronization performance requirements in the Smart Grid entails the need for a set of common metrics and test methods to verify the ability of the network system and its components to meet the power industry's accuracy, reliability and interoperability criteria for next-generation substations. In order to develop viable test methods, an IEEE 1588 Testbed for the power industry has been established. To ease the testing, monitoring and analysis of the results, a software-based testing dashboard was designed and implemented. The dashboard streamlines the performance testing process by converging multiple tests for accuracy, reliability and interoperability into a single interface. The dashboard enables real-time visualization and analysis of the results. The paper will detail the design and implementation of the IEEE 1588 Power Industry Performance Testing Dashboard as well as an update of the preliminary findings from the testbed.
