Manual Power measurements visualization

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Valentin Kozlov on 2019-05-23


Hi Team!

I'm testing Manual Power measurements import feature now.

I have several power panels feeded by main power panel with power measuring devices in my setup.

I want to use manual power measurements feature for panel load visualization.

I've create excel spreadsheet and upload it to DCO.

Now I have measured load on Main panels, but it not reflects on connected power consumers.

Main panel:

 

Connected "child":

 

In the same time, if I connect rPDU to Main panel, imported measured load will be transfered to rPDu level and displayed on the tooltip:

 

I assume it happens because of different consumer types, so the question:

How can I display measured power on "child" power panels if I have measures from Main panel breakers?

Do we have any options to "link" measured values to input breaker of power panel for example?

Hello Valentin. I assume the measurements you have displayed above represent the totals for the pdu but you also have breaker level power values?

If yes, then you have to look at sensor mapping the breaker sensors to the breaker poles in the panels inside the pdu's. Once the breaker sensors are mapped to the breaker poles, you should see power data downstream on your rack pdu's and so on.

https://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/display/UADCO8x/Configuring+branch+circuit+monitoring

Keep in mind the power overlay on racks and rack pdu's displays power data in watts/Kw not amps so you will want to map your watts/Kw power data if you have that.

Hi Greg!

I use buit-in transformation according to this article: https://sxwhelpcenter.ecostruxureit.com/display/public/UADCO8x/Importing+manual+power+measurements

So, I fill excel template with values and import it to DCO. It was automatically associated with objects in model and I have measures on breaker level:

In this example I connect power panel (which represent busbar section in my model) to breaker in positions 1-2-3 and rPDU to breaker in positions 4-5-6/

The problem is that measures are not displayed downstream on connected power panel. It's displays fine on rPDU and rack, but not on power panel.

Am I miss something?

No, I think you are correct in that case. The downstream power should be visible on rack pdu's but I do not think it will display on downstream power devices.
