Signal Analyzer

This section describes the Signal Analyzer tool.

Signal Analyzer is a tool used for visualization and analysis of signal data exported within Typhoon HIL software or dynamically imported from HIL SCADA. It shares the same visualization and signal analysis functionality with the Capture/Scope HIL SCADA widget.

After Signal Analyzer is opened, you will notice the similar start-up screen as is the case in HIL SCADA and Schematic Editor: the screen shows recently imported signal data files (Figure 1).

Each time you open a signal data file (Figure 2) or import data from HIL SCADA (Figure 3), a new tab with all visualized signals will be opened.

Note: Signal Analyzer can only open signal data files exported from Typhoon HIL software, which includes CSV (*.csv), HDF5 (*.h5), MATLAB mat (*.mat) and NI TMDS (*.tmds) file formats. If you try to open the same file format generated from another tool, there is a possibility that they will not be opened because of a specific internal file format structure used in Typhoon HIL’s software.

As mentioned above, visualization and data analysis part is identical to the same functionality found in Capture/Scope. Therefore, for detailed explanation how to use various visualization options and data analysis functionality, please consult Capture/Scope documentation (Capture/Scope plotting options)
