Implementering av OPC server för SNMP nätverksövervakning av FACTS anläggningar (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The goal of this thesis work was to implement a functional OPC server monitoring network devices in ABB/FACTS applications through the SNMP protocol. The work was divided into four different parts, analysis, design, implementation and verification. Different OPC server source codes and different SNMP libraries were analysed. After completing the analysis, Advosol source code and an SNMP library by Oliver Griffet was chosen. The design included determining which SNMP information was relevant. By choosing the relevant information in an early stage, the implementation phase was programming and done in a Visual Studio environment in C#. During the implementation phase the author also got familiarized with InTouch for the HMI window where the SNMP information was shown. A specific SNMP information window was also created in the user interface within InTouch. By implementing the SNMP library within the OPC server the author was able to demonstrate a working application concept at the end of the thesis work. 

Abstract [sv]

Målet med detta examensarbete var att implementera SNMP-funktionalitet i en OPC-server som ska övervaka ABB/FACTS nätverksutrustning. Arbetet var uppdelat i fyra olika faser, analys, design, implementation och verifikation. Under analysfasen så testades olika OPC-serverkällkoder och SNMP-bibliotek för att se vilka som skulle fungera bäst för ABB/FACTS utrustning. Slutligen valdes Advosols källkod och ett SNMP-bibliotek av Oliver Griffet. Vid designfasen fick programmet sin stomme och det bestämdes vilken SNMP-information som var relevant för arbetet. Under implementationen så användes Visual Studio som utvecklingsmiljö och programmet skrevs i C#. En testsida i InTouch som är HMI systemet i ABB/FACTS anläggningar skapades för att kunna visa SNMP- informationen. Genom att implementera ett SNMP-bibliotek i en OPC-server så kunde författaren vid slutet av examensarbete demonstrera ett fungerande koncept med en OPC-server för SNMP-övervakning av ABB/FACTS nätverksutrustning.
