Control Tool Does not Check Phases for Ground Being Placed and the Adjacent Devices (Doc ID 2269837.1)

Last updated on APRIL 24, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Utilities Network Management System - Version to [Release 1.12 to 2.3]
Oracle Network Management for Utilities - DMS - Version to [Release 1.12 to 2.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If you have a multi-phase switch connected to a device with a subset of those phases, it is possible to place a ground that has no common phases with the second device.

Users should not be allowed to put a ground between two devices of differing phases.

The issue can be reproduced on an OPAL with the following steps:

1. Copy ~/data/patches/done/2414.mb to ~/data/patches
2. Edit 2414.mb
3. Search for "ADD fuse_oh 1536"
4. Change the PHASES entry for that from
    PHASES = 4;
    PHASES = 7;

5. Save your changes
6. Build the map
Patch -diff 2414.mb

7. In Web Workspace, get authority for all zones
8. Start a viewer and search for device "F1112"
9. Bring up the Control tool for the fuse.
10. Select B phase.
11. Select Ground.

The dialog lists all three conductors, even though the downstream one has no common phases with the action.

12. Cancel the action.
13. Revert your changes in ~/data/patches/2414.mb
14. Rebuild the map.
