The Profile Tracking Period attribute determines the time period for the Current Profile and Previous Profile attributes in the Profile tab. This is customarily set to the utility’s billing period. If you change the Profile Tracking Period, the Current Profile is copied to the Previous Profile, and a new Current Profile is started. When Manual is selected, the Current Profile and Previous Profile are only changed when the user commands the DLLR object to Reset Profile. Possible settings include:

  • Manual

  • Hourly

  • Daily

  • Weekly

  • Monthly

Table 1 describes when the start and end times are set based on the tracking period.

The moment when the Reset Profile command is issued.

Always Not Specified

There are three exceptions to when the Start Times and End Times can vary from what is shown in Table 1. The Start Times and End Times differ when:

  • a Reset Profile command is issued to the DLLR object while in Shed or Monitor Only mode

  • a Reset Initialization Parameters command is issued to the DLLR object while in Monitor Only mode

  • the controller is downloaded or reset

Note: The Start Times and End Times are not reset when DLLR changes from Monitor Only mode to Shed mode. Also, when the DLLR object is disabled, the current profile is copied to the previous profile, the current profile values are all set to 0, and the times are all set to undefined.
