SISCO’s GOOSE Blaster is a simulation tool for the test engineer that can simulate GOOSE and Routable GOOSE (R-GOOSE) messaging for any IEC 61850 based IED in a substation. The GOOSE Blaster allows the test engineer to import a Substation Configuration Language (SCL) file containing descriptions of GOOSE control blocks for one or more IEDs. The test engineer can then configure a sequence of messaging with any parameter values and any timing for the published GOOSE creating normal and abnormal scenarios. Once the scenarios are configured the GOOSE Blaster creates a compiled version of the scenario and then executes the scenario with maximum performance.
- Simulate GOOSE and R-GOOSE messaging for IED functional testing
- Simulate invalid and out of sequence messaging for resiliency and reliability testing
- Simulate large numbers of IEDs and GOOSE messages for network load testing
