This course provides information and hands-on exercises that will enable the student to understand ICCP associations and define them in an PowerOn Reliance database. Students will configure the PC and PowerOn Reliance ICCP software, and use various utilities to effect datalink transfers.

The class includes an overview of the TASE.2/ICCP and MMS standards, an explanation of the mapping between TASE.2 objects, and the PowerOn Reliance database; procedures to configure the ISO network software; procedure to populate the PowerOn Reliance database for ICCP associations; and the actual transfer of data between two (fictional) control centers. The class will enable Engineering/ Programming staff to configure the PowerOn Reliance system ICCP software and to initialize and use
the ICCP datalink.
