Introduction to the ProPower 3 Software

The ProPower3 (PP3) software can be used to communicate with a Profile Portable Energy Monitor to download survey data and change the unit's settings and recording modes/parameters.

The same software provides comprehensive data analysis tools allowing the user to gain a good understanding of the energy use recorded during a Profile survey.

For details of the Profile's capabilities and instructions in its use please refer to the hardware documentation.

System Requirements

The ProPower 3 software relies on the Java Run-time Environment. This is however included within the software installation routine so no other installations are required.
For PC installation Window 7 or later is required.
For Mac, macOS 10.8 "Mountain Lion" or later is required.
PP3 is a 64 bit application and hence requires a 64 bit environment in which to run.

For communications with a Profile Portable Energy Monitor, it is also necessary to install the USB drivers. Drivers appropriate for your operating system can be downloaded from https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm and should be installed before connecting a Profile to a USB port on your computer.

Installation of ProPower 3

To install the ProPower3 software on your machine;
PC; Extract the PP3-Setup-V*.exe installation package from the downloaded PP3-Setup-V***-PC.zip file and run it. Follow any on screen instructions.
Mac; Extract the ProPower3.app file from the downloaded PP3-Setup-V***-Mac.zip file, and copy it to a suitable location.

Before installing a later version of the ProPower 3 software, it is advisable to first uninstall any existing version.
The ProPower 3 software can be uninstalled in the usual way via the Windows Control Panel, or on Mac by deleting the ProPower3.app file.

ProPower 3 Startup

Once installed ProPower 3 can be started via the desktop or start menu shortcuts in Windows, or via the ProPower3.app file on Mac.
These can be identified by the PP3 icon;

If this option is not ticked the user will be required to select a comms port before communications with a Profile will be attempted.

Communicating with a Profile

N.B. Profiles with USB Connection
The Profile Portable Energy Recorder use a USB connection (‘USB Mini B’ type) to connect to the PC. It is vital that the USB drivers are installed before the Profile is connected to your PC’s USB port.

A version of the USB connection drivers will be located on the PP3 installation disk. For the latest version for your operating system please visit https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm.
The USB drivers installation file will be of the form ‘CDM21216_Setup.exe’ (Windows. Version number may vary). Please run this file to install the USB drivers before connecting the Profile to a USB port.

Logging On to a Profile

Before it is possible to download survey data, or change Profile settings, a connection to the Profile must be established. You must therefore Log On to the Profile.

Before attempting to Log On to a Profile please ensure that it is powered and connected to a USB port on your computer. Please also ensure that (as per the note above) USB drivers suitable for your computer have been installed.

Communications with a connected Profile can be instigated either via the 'Log On to Profile' option on the File menu, or via the 'Log On' button on the 'Select Data File....' box;

Menu bar - File menu

Select Data File, OR Log On selection

When either of these is clicked, the PP3 communications ('Profile Data Download & Setup') screen will open as a new window.

If the 'Automatically scan available ports for Profile' option in PP3 Settings is ticked, the PP3 software will automatically begin scanning available comms ports for a Profile;
Profile comms - looking for a Profile screen shot

If the 'Automatically scan available ports for Profile' option in PP3 Settings is not selected, then the user must manually select the comms port to which the Profile is connected before clicking the 'Log on' button;
Profile - Select Comms Port screen shot

N.B.
Even though you are connecting the Profile to a USB port, Windows assigns a comms port number to it.
The comms port number in use can be seen in Windows Device Manager. The Profile will appear as 'USB Serial Port' in the 'Ports' section, with the comms port number shown after the description. When a Profile is connected, a 'USB Serial Converter' entry will also be present in the 'Universal Serial Bus controllers' section.
Device manager showing connected Profile

Tip
In general it is easier to allow the PP3 software to scan for the connected profile automatically (tick the 'Automatically scan available ports for Profile' option in PP3 Settings).
Over time however, if you frequently connect & disconnect different hardware to your computer's USB ports, you may find that some comms ports become permanently assigned by Windows and unavailable*.
When this occurs it may take some time for the PP3 software to scan all available ports and find a connected Profile.

As an alternative, the 'Automatically scan available ports for Profile' option in PP3 Settings can be unticked, the comms port number in use by the Profile can be checked in Device Manager and that port selected before manually logging on.

[*Doing so is beyond the scope of this document and is not necessarily advisable, but instructions can be found on the internet detailing how to remove (uninstall) these 'hidden comms ports'. If you decide to do this please be careful, and do not uninstall anything that relates to connected equipment]

Once successfully connected to a Profile, the software will display live readings on 6 dials, and above the dials a selection of the current Profile setting;

Downloading Survey Data

Once logged on to a Profile, the Download Survey Data option becomes available on the Communications menu. The 'Download Survey Data' button is also enabled. Either of these can be used to open the 'Set Survey Download Parameters' window;

Set Survey Download options screen shot

1. Set the start date of the data you wish to download.

2. Set the end date for the data you wish to download.

3. Set the file (location & filename) to which the data should be saved.

4. Click 'Download Data' to start the data download.

N.B.
a) Data will be downloaded for whole days inclusive of the start & end dates selected. When analysing the survey data, options exist to set alternate start and end dates & times.
b) The data is downloaded as raw text. If the file selected for the data already exists, it will be overwritten.
c) Long surveys, particularly those using short integration periods can take a little time to download. Please do not disconnect the Profile during the downloading of data.

Once all selections have been made, and the 'Download Data' button clicked, data download will begin and an indication of the download in progress will be shown;
Screen shot of Profile survey data being downloaded
On completion of the download, the download parameters window will close and the software will return to the main Data Download & Setup window.
The data file created can now be loaded into the PP3 software for analysis.

Profile Hardware Settings

The default settings configured when your Profile was supplied are suitable in most circumstances.
It is however possible to change these if required via the Data Download & Setup area of the PP3 software.

N.B.
Please be careful when changing the settings of your Profile. Some settings can lead to incorrect or misleading data being recorded during surveys.
Changing some settings will also lead to the Profile's memory being cleared.

In order to change the settings in your Profile it must be connected to your computer and the PP3 software must be logged on to it.

Three areas exist that allow changes to be made to the Profile settings. All three are accessed via the Profile Settings menu.

Logging & Clock Setup;

Screen shot of Profile logging & clock settings
Current Date & Time - displays the date & time as read from the Profile internal clock
Set Date & Time - set the Profile's date & time.    
Logging Period - click the Change Period button to toggle between available logging periods
Automatic or Manual Logging Start - click the Toggle Autolog button to switch between auto & manual logging
Logging Start Time - when in manual logging mode, set the date & time at which logging should  start (this option is available only when Logging Start is set to 'Manual'.
Clear memory - clear the logger memory of previously recorded survey data.

N.B.
For most surveys 30 or 15 minute logging periods are suggested and Auto Logging should be set.

 Logging Period:
Although setting the logging period to a smaller duration will store data with more definition (more data records will be stored), recorded figures are no less accurate at the longer logging period settings.

E.g. Over a 30 minute survey the kWh usage recorded on 15 min periods might be 10 kWh & 20 kWh.
On 5 min intervals, they might be 3 kWh, 4 kWh, 3 kWh, 4 kWh, 6 kWh & 10 kWh - the totals over the 30
minutes are the same, the 5 minute period data just gives more data points.
The default of 30 or 15 minute recording intervals is sufficient for most surveys. Lower recording intervals are
only advised where the user needs to know what fluctuations occurred within those default periods.

Logging periods available for the user to set are 60, 30, 15, 10, 5 or 1 minute.

Intervals of less than 1 minute are available for selection but the PP3 software can not be used to analyse data recorded using them. The recording capacity is also greatly reduced so using them is not recommended.

Automatic or Manual Logging Start:
In automatic logging mode the Profile will log whenever it is powered (please note that the installation 'auto phasing' routine should be completed whenever the Profile is installed for a survey - see the Profile Installation Guide).

In manual logging mode the Profile will start logging only at the date & time set. This can be useful when using the shorter logging periods.
However, when analysing the survey data in PP3 it is easy to select any start/end date & time for reports & charts, so it is usually not necessary to set the Profile to manual logging mode.

Clear Memory
It is not usually necessary to manually clear the Profile's memory after each survey. When the memory capacity is reached the memory will wrap around overwriting the earliest data stored.

Tip
Profile memory Capacities;
30 minute periods - 12 weeks
15 minute periods - 6 weeks
10 minute periods - 4 weeks
5 minute periods - 2 weeks
1 minute periods - ~2days

Current Setup;

Screen shot of Profile Current Settings
Full Current Range - the current range presently in use by the Profile. Click the Toggle Range button to switch between available current ranges (available only in Manual Ranging mode).
Auto/Manual Ranging - click the Auto/Manual button to toggle between automatic and manual current ranging.
Full/Part Current Mode - click the Part/Full button to toggle between current modes.
Existing CT Ratio - displays the CT ratio in use (only when Part Current Mode is in use)
Set CT Primary - enter the required CT primary in the box and click the Set CT Primary button to  change the CT ratio (only available when Part Current Mode is in use).

N.B.
For most surveys the Profile should be left in Automatic Current Ranging & Full Current modes.

Full Current Range & Auto/Manual Ranging
The Profile can be set to one of four current ranges, 0-6A, 0-120A, 0-500A, & 0-2000A.
In Auto Ranging mode, the Profile will automatically switch to the most suitable range as the current being measured fluctuates.
This can be manually overridden by setting the Profile into Manual Ranging, and manually fixing the Current Range.
Please bear in mind that when Manual Ranging is selected, if the current moves out of the selected range recorded data will not be accurate.

Full/Part Current Mode & CT Ratio/Primary
In some circumstances the Profile coils can be installed around 5A CT output tails rather than the actual supply cables.
In this scenario the Profile should be set to Manual Ranging and Part Current mode, and the CT Primary set to match the primary current rating of the CTs.
The Profile will then set itself into the 0-6A measurement range and will automatically multiply up the measured current using the set CT ratio.

Voltage Setup;

screen shot of Profile Voltage settings
LV/HV Mode - select low or high voltage operation (Profile V only. Please see hardware guides for more information on monitoring of HV circuits).
Auto/Manual Voltage Ranging - click the Auto/Manual button to toggle between automatic and manual voltage ranging.
Phase Mode - click the 1 or 3 Phase button to toggle between single and three phase operation (available for selection only in manual ranging mode although setting is retained in automatic mode).

N.B.
For most surveys the Profile should be left in Automatic Voltage Ranging mode.

Auto/Manual Voltage Ranging & 1 or 3 Phase modes
In normal use the Profile should be left in Automatic Voltage Ranging mode. Manual voltage ranging is used for monitoring of HV circuits (when VTs are in use).
However, in order to set the Profile into single phase mode, it must first be set to manual voltage ranging.
Once single phase mode has been enabled, the Profile should be set back to automatic voltage ranging.

Tip
For most single phase surveys it is not necessary to set the Profile into single phase mode.
Instead, simply use the phase 1 (red/brown) coil, ensure that the voltage in use is from the same single phase supply, and follow the usual 'auto phasing' routine (see the Profile Installation Guide: Single Phase Energy Monitoring Surveys).

Analysing Survey Data in ProPower 3

Loading a Profile Data File

Once the raw survey data file has been downloaded from a Profile, it can be loaded into the ProPower 3 software for analysis.
The 'Select Data File....' box is available when PP3 is first started but can also be accessed at any time by selecting 'Load Data File' from the 'File' menu.

ProPower 3 File menu

ProPower 3 - Load Data File

1. Set the path to the saved Profile data file either by typing in the full path to the file (including the filename) or by clicking 'Browse' to select the file.

2. Set a survey title. This is used as a heading for report & chart.

3. Set the data multiplier. This can be used to multiply the recorded data if a survey was performed with the Profile coils around only one of two sets of balanced supply cables for example.
In most cases it should be left as 1.

4. Click 'Load Data' to load the selected data file.
Once the survey data file is loaded, the Summary Report will automatically load.

Summary Report

The Summary Report details various parameters from the loaded data file including consumption figures, period demands, phase balance & more.
ProPower 3 Summary Report screen
When first opened the report will include data from the whole of the loaded data file.
Alternate start and end dates & times for the report can be selected via the toolbar. After clicking 'Apply' the new start & end times will be used to recalculate the Summary Report figures.

N.B.
a) The 'Min' figures in the Summary Report exclude zeros.
b) Night time is defined here as 00:00 to 07:00.
c) The 'Projected Month' & 'Projected Year' figures are intended as a guide only. They simply divide the total figures by the number of days included in the summary report before multiplying by 30 or 365 respectively.

The 'Summary' menu on the main menu bar, and the context (right-click) menu provide options for saving or exporting the Summary Report.
PP3 Summary MenuPP3 Summary Report Context Menu

XLS Report

The XLS report can be created at any time after a data file had been loaded. By default it uses a template .xls file that is included within the ProPower 3 program.
To create an XLS Report select the 'Build XLS Report' option from the Reports menu

To make production of the XLS report possible, the computer in use must have software installed capable of opening Microsoft Excel® (.xls) file. The XLS report will open directly in this program

The raw, period by period demand and consumption data is loaded into the first two spreadsheet tabs/worksheets.
On subsequent worksheets various functions can be used, linking to the first two worksheets to produce the report data.

Using the XLS Report functionality, it is possible to create a custom report to suit your exact needs.
To do this, a custom template .xls file can be created using Microsoft Excel® or another spreadsheet program.
The first two worksheets of any xls template should be left as they are in the default template to allow the PP3 software to populate them with the period by period demand & consumption data from the loaded survey file.

Once created the custom xls file should be saved to a suitable location and the path to it set in the XLS Report area of the PP3 Settings.

N.B.
a) The XLS report produced will include data for the latest date & time range applied to either the Summary Report or a PP3 Chart.
b) To make production of the XLS report possible, the computer in use must have a program capable of opening Microsoft Excel® (.xls) files installed.
c) Only a single XLS Report can be viewed at a time, so please save/close each report as required before attempting to load a second XLS report with a different start & end range.

Tip
When creating your own template .xls file, use the supplied default template as a basis for it.
The first two tabs/worksheets (named Survey_Demand_Data & Survey_Consumption_Data) are populated by the PP3 software, all other worksheets link to the data in the first two tabs/worksheets using various functions.
There is also some formatting in these first two worksheets that ensures the XLS Report can be produced successfully, and that the functions used operate correctly.
It is therefore essential that the first two worksheets (named Survey_Demand_Data & Survey_Consumption_Data) above are present and unchanged in any custom xls template file used.

PDF Report

The PDF report can be created at any time after a survey data file has been loaded. To create an PDF Report select the 'Build PDF Report' option from the Reports menu

The pages to be included in the report can be set within the PP3 Settings area.

N.B.
a) The PDF report produced will include data for the latest date & time range applied to either the Summary Report or a PP3 Chart.
b) To make production of the PDF report possible, the computer in use must have a program capable of opening Adobe Acrobat® (.pdf) files.
c) Only a single XLS Report can be viewed at a time, so please save/close each report as required before attempting to load a second XLS report with different options or a different start & end range.

Tip
The PDF report can take some time to build, so it is advisable to select only the options required in the PP3 Settings.

ProPower 3 Charts

The PP3 Charts allow graphs to be displayed for any of the electrical units available in or calculated from the Profile survey data file. Graphs can include individual phases or phase totals, over any date/time period within the range of the loaded survey file.

Any number of chart pages can be opened (within the capabilities of the computer in use!) via the 'View Chart' button on the main PP3 (Summary Report) screen, or via the 'View Charts' option on the 'Data menu. Each chart opens in an individual window.
ProPower 3 Bar Chart screen shot

N.B.
a) Subject to the caveat in b), when first opened the chart produced will include data for the latest date & time range applied to either the Summary Report or a PP3 Chart.
b) On first opening a chart window you may be presented with the following warning;

PP3 Chart Screen Limit Warning

This warning is displayed when the number of data points in the date/time range selected exceeds the number that the monitor in use can display (no. of data points > screen width pixels).
In order to prevent the chart taking too long to load, the end date/time has been adjusted so that the number of data points does not exceed the screen width.

Charts can be displayed as stacked bars, lines, pie charts. When the stacked bar or line chart option is selected for the main chart, an overlay line chart can be added with its scale on the right-hand side of the chart window.

At the bottom of each chart window is displayed the chart key and associated totals or average values relating to the unit being displayed.
