Description

本発明は、情報処理装置、管理装置、情報処理システム、及びプログラムに関し、特にそれぞれの入力電源の系が異なり、並列運転され、また警告レベルの異常電位も検出し通知する複数の電源部を含む情報処理装置、これらより警告レベルを含む電源の異常通知を受け予防的に対処する管理装置、これらを含む情報処理システム、及びプログラムに関する。   The present invention relates to an information processing device, a management device, an information processing system, and a program, and particularly includes a plurality of power supply units that have different input power supply systems, are operated in parallel, and also detect and notify an abnormal potential at a warning level. The present invention relates to an information processing device, a management device that proactively receives a power supply abnormality notification including a warning level, an information processing system including these, and a program.

電力供給が比較的不安定な、例えば欧米などでは、電源部を二重化構成などにして、複数の電力会社と契約し、二つ以上の電力供給を行っていることがある。   For example, in Europe and the United States where power supply is relatively unstable, there are cases where two or more power supplies are made by contracting with a plurality of power companies with a dual power supply unit.

日本国内においても、昨今の電力自由化の推進から、近い将来、複数の電力会社からの電力供給も現実のものになると予想される。   Even in Japan, with the recent promotion of electricity liberalization, power supply from multiple power companies is expected to become a reality in the near future.

そして、競争原理に則り、電力の低料金化が進むと考えられるが、それに伴って供給クオリティーの低下という弊害も免れないものと考える。   And, in accordance with the principle of competition, it is thought that the price of electric power will be lowered, but along with that, we think that the harmful effect of a decline in supply quality is inevitable.

また、商用電源が不安定な場合に、負荷側の障害の発生や蓄電池の放電回数の増加を防ぐ様にした装置として、下記の無停電電源装置がある。   In addition, there is the following uninterruptible power supply as an apparatus that prevents the occurrence of a failure on the load side and the increase in the number of discharges of the storage battery when the commercial power supply is unstable.

商用電源を入力として整流し、蓄電池に蓄え、これを交流電力に変換するインバータと商用電源入力を直結するバイパス回路と、異常発生履歴から商用電源の安定性を監視し、商用電源が所定の時間以上継続して安定しているときはバイパス回路を選択し出力し、商用電源に異常が発生したとき、所定の時間が経過するまでインバータを選択し出力する(特許文献1参照)。   Rectify commercial power as input, store it in a storage battery, convert this to AC power, bypass circuit that directly connects commercial power input, and monitor the stability of commercial power from the history of occurrence of abnormality. When the power supply continues to be stable, the bypass circuit is selected and output. When an abnormality occurs in the commercial power supply, the inverter is selected and output until a predetermined time elapses (see Patent Document 1).

このような仕組みにおいて、さらに、定格電位と最低許容電位との範囲内で、電圧の低下と認められる電位を、警告すべき電位状態(警告電位状態)とみなし、検出することのできる電源異常検出回路111或いは121を備えている。   In such a mechanism, a power supply abnormality detection that can detect a potential that is considered to be a voltage drop within the range of the rated potential and the minimum allowable potential as a potential state that should be warned (warning potential state). A circuit 111 or 121 is provided.

警告電位状態とは、図2の(2)に示す様に、最低許容電位以上ではあるが、瞬間的な警告レベル以下の低下を起こした状態である。尚、図2の(3)は、DC電源出力レベルが、瞬間的ではあるが最低許容電位を下回り、システム運転を継続できない障害電位状態を示し、(1)は警告電位を下回らない、無視できる電位状態(警告電位に達していない状態)を示す。   As shown in (2) of FIG. 2, the warning potential state is a state in which a drop below the instantaneous warning level occurs, although it is above the minimum allowable potential. Note that (3) in FIG. 2 indicates a failure potential state in which the DC power output level is momentarily below the minimum allowable potential and the system operation cannot be continued, and (1) does not fall below the warning potential and can be ignored. Indicates a potential state (a state where the warning potential has not been reached).

尚、定格電位>警告電位>最低許容電位であり、供給電位が警告電位から最低許容電位の範囲に達すると電源異常検出回路111,或いは121が警告状態と判断する。   Note that the rated potential> the warning potential> the minimum allowable potential, and when the supply potential reaches the range from the warning potential to the minimum allowable potential, the power supply abnormality detection circuit 111 or 121 determines that the warning state has occurred.

次に、診断プロセッサ15が電源異常通知を受信したときの処理を図3のフローチャートを参照し説明する。   Next, processing when the diagnostic processor 15 receives a power failure notification will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

1系電源部11,或いは2系電源部12の何れかが警告電位状態を診断プロセッサ15に通知すると、診断プロセッサ15は、その電源部の運転停止状態によるものか否かを判断する(ステップA1)。運転停止状態でなければ、その発生日時を履歴情報として履歴部151の記憶部に記録する(ステップA2)。   When either the 1-system power supply unit 11 or the 2-system power supply unit 12 notifies the diagnosis processor 15 of the warning potential state, the diagnosis processor 15 determines whether or not it is due to the operation stop state of the power supply unit (step A1). ). If the operation is not stopped, the date and time of occurrence is recorded as history information in the storage unit of the history unit 151 (step A2).

診断プロセッサ15内の解析部152では、事前に指定された単位時間内に、異常電位を検出した回数をカウントし、事前に定められた回数を越えたか判定し越えた場合に(ステップA3)、通報部153を呼び出し、通報部153は回数と時刻を保守員端末2或いはコンソール(オペレータコンソ−ル)3に通報する(ステップA4)。   The analysis unit 152 in the diagnostic processor 15 counts the number of times that an abnormal potential is detected within a unit time designated in advance, and when it is determined whether or not the number of times determined in advance has been exceeded (step A3), The reporting unit 153 is called, and the reporting unit 153 reports the frequency and time to the maintenance staff terminal 2 or the console (operator console) 3 (step A4).

例えば、連続7日の間に10回を越えたら通報したり、あるいは、24時間に2回を越えたら通報するように自由に指定することができる。   For example, it is possible to freely specify that notification is made when 10 times are exceeded within 7 consecutive days, or notification is made when 2 times are exceeded in 24 hours.

この結果から、給電が不安定な状態であると判断した場合には、もし、このとき、片系の電源供給だけでシステム稼動させていた場合に、もう片系の電源を立ち上げ、給電を二重化させておくことで、近い将来、起こり得るかも知れない停電や瞬断に備え、システムダウンを未然に防止することが可能となる。   From this result, if it is determined that the power supply is unstable, if the system is operating with only one system power supply, the other system power is turned on and power supply is performed. By making it redundant, it is possible to prevent a system from going down in preparation for a power failure or instantaneous interruption that may occur in the near future.

更にステップA4で、保守員端末2或いはコンソール(オペレータコンソ−ル)3への通知の他、データ処理部13のOS131にも通知する様にすることで、システムの使用状況により、致命的な場面を回避するために、OS131がシステムを自らシャットダウンさせることも可能となる。   Furthermore, in step A4, in addition to notifying the maintenance staff terminal 2 or the console (operator console) 3, but also notifying the OS 131 of the data processing unit 13, a fatal situation may occur depending on the usage status of the system. In order to avoid this, the OS 131 can shut down the system itself.

例えば、OS131は、走行状態や一度起動され待機している状態のAP(アプリケーションプログラム)等のそれぞれに終了指示をし、AP等は他装置と通信中であれば打ち切りを相手に通知し、また仕掛かり中の処理を終えファイルへの反映をし、使用中ファイルのクローズを要求し終了処理をし、OS131に終了を通知する。OS131は全てのAP等から終了通知を受けシャットダウンする。   For example, the OS 131 gives an end instruction to each of the running state and the AP (application program) that has been started and is in a standby state. If the AP is communicating with another device, the OS 131 notifies the other party of the termination. The processing in progress is finished and reflected in the file, the close of the file in use is requested, the termination processing is performed, and the OS 131 is notified of the termination. The OS 131 receives an end notification from all APs and shuts down.

尚、電源異常検出回路111や電源異常検出回路121が、電源部を運転停止させたときの電圧降下については、診断プロセッサ15への通知を事前に抑止する例もありこの場合は、診断プロセッサ15はステップA1は実行しない。   There is an example in which the power failure detection circuit 111 or the power failure detection circuit 121 suppresses the notification to the diagnostic processor 15 in advance about the voltage drop when the power supply unit is shut down. Does not execute step A1.

また、ステップ3の判定処理を開始するトリガを事前に指定された単位時間とせずに、ステップ2で履歴を追加した場合にその電源部の記録をチェックするようにしてもよい。   In addition, when a history is added in step 2 without setting the trigger for starting the determination process in step 3 as a unit time specified in advance, the recording of the power supply unit may be checked.

次に、保守員端末2或いはコンソール3(要求元装置)から電源異常徴候の統計情報を取得する動作について図4のフローチャートを参照し説明する。   Next, the operation of acquiring statistical information on power supply abnormality signs from the maintenance staff terminal 2 or the console 3 (request source apparatus) will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

診断プロセッサ15の解析部152は要求元装置から統計情報要求を受けると(ステップC1)、確認したい期間の内の開始日時を取得する(ステップC2)。   When the analysis unit 152 of the diagnostic processor 15 receives the statistical information request from the request source device (step C1), the analysis unit 152 acquires the start date and time within the period to be confirmed (step C2).

ここで開始日時を取得するとは、入力指示メッセージあるいは入力画面情報を要求元装置の要求元プログラム(診断プロセッサアクセスプログラム、或いはブラウザ)に送信し、表示を行わせ、その応答としての入力情報を要求元プログラムから受信することである。   To acquire the start date and time is to send an input instruction message or input screen information to the request source program (diagnostic processor access program or browser) of the request source device for display and request input information as a response It is received from the original program.

解析部152は、確認したい期間の内の終了日時を取得し(ステップC3)、更に時間間隔の指定を取得する(ステップC4)。解析部152は、履歴部151を通じて、過去に遡って、対応する期間の記録を履歴記憶部より読み出し(ステップC5)、異常電位が検出された回数を単位時間毎カウントし、電源部の系毎に統計処理をし一覧情報を作成し、通報部153に渡す(ステップC6)。   The analysis unit 152 acquires the end date and time within the period to be confirmed (step C3), and further acquires the designation of the time interval (step C4). The analysis unit 152 goes back to the past through the history unit 151, reads the record of the corresponding period from the history storage unit (step C5), counts the number of times the abnormal potential is detected per unit time, and Then, statistical processing is performed to create list information, which is passed to the reporting unit 153 (step C6).

通報部153が一覧情報を要求元装置の要求元プログラムに送信し、画面表示させる(ステップC7)。   The reporting unit 153 transmits the list information to the request source program of the request source device to display the screen (step C7).

一覧表示の一例を図5(1)、及び(2)に示す。(1)は、開始日時を2005年6月6日00時00分00秒とし、終了日時を2005年7月24日00時00分00秒迄とし、間隔を24時間とした場合の例である。   An example of the list display is shown in FIGS. 5 (1) and (2). (1) is an example in which the start date / time is set to June 6, 2005, 00:00:00, the end date / time is set to July 24, 2005, 00:00:00, and the interval is set to 24 hours. is there.

ここで*は1回を表すようにしてもよいが、10回や100回を表すようにする例もある。   Here, * may represent one time, but there is an example in which it represents 10 times or 100 times.

(2)は、開始日時、終了日時は(1)と同様とし、間隔を168時間(1週間)とした場合の例である。   (2) is an example in which the start date and time and end date and time are the same as in (1) and the interval is 168 hours (one week).

この統計情報を元に、保守員は、電源部それぞれの系の安定具合を認識することが可能となり、必要ならば、比較的安定している系のみ残して、もう片系の電源を落とすことができる。   Based on this statistical information, the maintenance staff can recognize the stability of each power supply system, and if necessary, leave only the relatively stable system and turn off the other system. Can do.

次に、本発明の情報処理システムの第2の実施形態について図面を参照して詳細に説明する。図6は本発明の第2の実施形態の全体構成を示したブロック図である。   Next, a second embodiment of the information processing system of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the drawings. FIG. 6 is a block diagram showing the overall configuration of the second embodiment of the present invention.

本実施形態では、1系電源部11B,2系電源部12Bのそれぞれは診断プロセッサ15Bに運転状態通知を送信し、診断プロセッサ15Bから各電源部に運転指示を行う。   In the present embodiment, each of the 1-system power supply unit 11B and the 2-system power supply unit 12B transmits an operation state notification to the diagnosis processor 15B, and issues an operation instruction to each power supply unit from the diagnosis processor 15B.

即ち、診断プロセッサ15Bが、障害の徴候としての異常電位を検出した回数をカウントし、事前に定められた回数を越えた場合に、自動的に、片系運転かどうかをチェックしそうであれば、もう一方の系の電源を立ち上げ並列運転状態にしておく。   That is, if the diagnostic processor 15B counts the number of times that an abnormal potential as a sign of a failure is detected and exceeds a predetermined number of times, if it is likely to automatically check whether it is a single system operation, Power up the other system and leave it in parallel operation.

解析部152は異常電位を検出のカウントが、事前に定められた回数を越えた場合に電源制御部154を呼び出し、電源制御部154は、運転状態をチェックし、片系運転状態であれば、もう一方の系の電源の運転を指示する。   The analysis unit 152 calls the power supply control unit 154 when the abnormal electric potential detection count exceeds a predetermined number of times, and the power supply control unit 154 checks the operation state. Instruct the operation of the power supply of the other system.

履歴部151、解析部152、通報部153、電源制御部154は、診断プロセッサ15Bを各部に対応のプログラムで制御することで実現する。   The history unit 151, the analysis unit 152, the notification unit 153, and the power supply control unit 154 are realized by controlling the diagnostic processor 15B with a program corresponding to each unit.

図7は1系電源部11Bの構成を示したブロック図である。1系電源部11Bは、電源異常検出回路111と、定電圧制御機能の付いたAC/DC変換部112と、コンデンサ113と、入力スイッチ回路114,給電スイッチ回路115を含む。   FIG. 7 is a block diagram showing the configuration of the 1-system power supply unit 11B. The 1-system power supply unit 11B includes a power supply abnormality detection circuit 111, an AC / DC conversion unit 112 with a constant voltage control function, a capacitor 113, an input switch circuit 114, and a power supply switch circuit 115.

電源異常検出回路111は、電源レベルモニタ回路1111と、モニタ回路用電源部1112を含み、モニタ回路用電源部1112は、制御用電源を入力とした充電回路と電池(バッテリ)を含み、充電電圧と電池電圧を並列にして、電源レベルモニタ回路1111に供給されている。   The power supply abnormality detection circuit 111 includes a power supply level monitor circuit 1111 and a monitor circuit power supply unit 1112, and the monitor circuit power supply unit 1112 includes a charging circuit and a battery (battery) having a control power supply as input, and a charging voltage And the battery voltage are supplied in parallel to the power supply level monitor circuit 1111.

電源レベルモニタ回路1111は、AC/DC変換部112の出力電位と警告電位との比較器、前記出力電位と最低許容電位との比較器、警告電位と最低許容電位の各電位発生回路等を含む。
The power supply level monitor circuit 1111 includes a comparator between the output potential of the AC / DC converter 112 and the warning potential, a comparator between the output potential and the minimum allowable potential, each potential generation circuit for the warning potential and the minimum allowable potential, and the like. .
.

入力スイッチ回路114は自己ホールド機能も持つリレー回路で、給電スイッチ回路115は、FET(電界効果トランジスタ)スイッチ及びそのゲート駆動状態を保持する回路、或いは自己ホールド機能も持つリレー回路等である。   The input switch circuit 114 is a relay circuit that also has a self-hold function, and the feed switch circuit 115 is a circuit that holds an FET (field effect transistor) switch and its gate drive state, or a relay circuit that also has a self-hold function.

2系電源部12Bの構成も同様である。1系電源部11Bの動作概要を説明すると、入力オントリガ信号を通じ駆動電圧を受けると、入力スイッチ回路114がメイクし、AC/DC変換部112にAC入力が供給され、この出力や制御用電源が立ち上がり、入力スイッチ回路114の自己ホールドが働きメイク状態が保持される。   The structure of the 2 system power supply part 12B is also the same. The operation outline of the 1-system power supply unit 11B will be described. When a drive voltage is received through an input on trigger signal, the input switch circuit 114 makes up, and an AC input is supplied to the AC / DC conversion unit 112. The input switch circuit 114 self-holds and the make-up state is held.

コンデンサ113が充電されると、電源レベルモニタ回路1111の定格電圧信号がオンとなり、診断プロセッサ15Bから、給電オントリガ指示を受け、給電スイッチ回路115をオン(導通)状態にし、1系DC出力もデータ処理部13に供給される。   When the capacitor 113 is charged, the rated voltage signal of the power supply level monitor circuit 1111 is turned on, the power supply on trigger instruction is received from the diagnostic processor 15B, the power supply switch circuit 115 is turned on (conductive), and the 1-system DC output is also data. It is supplied to the processing unit 13.

又、給電スイッチオン状態がアクティブになり診断プロセッサ15Bに通知される。   In addition, the power supply switch ON state becomes active and is notified to the diagnostic processor 15B.

次に、診断プロセッサ15Bが電源異常通知を受信したときの処理を図8のフローチャートを参照し説明する。   Next, processing when the diagnostic processor 15B receives a power failure notification will be described with reference to the flowchart of FIG.

1系電源部11,或いは2系電源部12の何れかが警告電位状態を診断プロセッサ15Bに通知すると、診断プロセッサ15Bは、その電源部の運転停止状態によるものか否かを判断する(ステップB1)。運転停止状態でなければ、その発生日時を履歴情報として履歴部151の記憶部に記録する(ステップB2)。   When either the 1-system power supply unit 11 or the 2-system power supply unit 12 notifies the diagnosis processor 15B of the warning potential state, the diagnosis processor 15B determines whether or not it is due to the operation stop state of the power supply unit (step B1). ). If the operation is not stopped, the date and time of occurrence is recorded as history information in the storage unit of the history unit 151 (step B2).

診断プロセッサ15B内の解析部152では、事前に指定された単位時間内に、警告電位を検出した回数をカウントし、事前に定められた回数を越えたか判定し越えた場合に電源制御部154を呼び出す(ステップB3)。
電源制御部154は、両系の給電スイッチがオン状態かチェックし片系の給電スイッチのみがオン状態であれば(ステップB4)、給電スイッチがオフの系の定格電圧信号がアクティブでなければ(ステップB5)、入力オントリガを駆動する(ステップB6)。
The analysis unit 152 in the diagnostic processor 15B counts the number of times that the warning potential has been detected within a unit time specified in advance, and determines whether the predetermined number has been exceeded or not. Call (step B3).
The power supply control unit 154 checks whether the power supply switches of both systems are on. If only one power supply switch is on (step B4), the rated voltage signal of the system where the power supply switch is off is not active (step B4). In step B5), the input on trigger is driven (step B6).

定格電圧信号がアクティブになったとき(ステップB7)、或いはステップB5でアクティブであれば、給電オンのトリガ指示を行なった後、給電スイッチオン状態を確認する(ステップB9)。   When the rated voltage signal becomes active (step B7) or if it is active in step B5, a power-on trigger is instructed, and then the power-supply switch on state is confirmed (step B9).

通報部153を呼び出し、通報部153は異常発生回数と時刻と所定の条件に達した旨と、並列運転されている電源部の有無と、片系運転であった場合の他方の系を運転状態(DC出力供給状態)に出来たかどうかを保守員端末2或いはコンソール3に通報する(ステップB10)。   The reporting unit 153 is called, and the reporting unit 153 indicates that the number of occurrences of the abnormality, the time, the predetermined condition has been reached, the presence / absence of the power supply unit that is operated in parallel, and the other system in the case of one-system operation. The maintenance staff terminal 2 or the console 3 is notified as to whether or not the DC output supply state has been achieved (step B10).

尚、ステップB4で、両系の給電スイッチがオン状態であれば、通報部153を呼び出し、通報部153は異常発生回数と時刻と所定の条件に達した旨を通報する。   In step B4, if the power supply switches of both systems are in the on state, the reporting unit 153 is called, and the reporting unit 153 reports that the number of times of occurrence of the abnormality, the time, and a predetermined condition have been reached.

ステップB5で、給電スイッチがオフの系の定格電圧信号が既にアクティブであれば直ぐにステップB9に進む。   In step B5, if the rated voltage signal of the system whose power supply switch is OFF is already active, the process proceeds to step B9 immediately.

また、保守員端末2或いはコンソール3(要求元装置)から電源異常徴候の統計情報を取得する動作については前記第1の実施形態と同様である。   Further, the operation for acquiring the statistical information of the power supply abnormality sign from the maintenance staff terminal 2 or the console 3 (request source device) is the same as that in the first embodiment.

以上の第2の実施形態の説明では、給電スイッチオンの指示も診断プロセッサ15から行う例で説明したが、入力オントリガを受けた後、出力が定格電位状態になると、電源部11や12が自動的に給電スイッチをオンにする様にしてもよい。   In the above description of the second embodiment, the example in which the power-on switch is instructed from the diagnosis processor 15 has been described. However, when the output becomes the rated potential state after receiving the input-on trigger, the power supply units 11 and 12 are automatically activated. Alternatively, the power supply switch may be turned on.

また、スイッチを介さずにAC入力電源が入力される小容量の充電回路と電池との並列出力とで、モニタ回路用電源を含む電源部の制御用電源を供給する構成にしてもよい。   Further, the power supply for control of the power supply unit including the power supply for the monitor circuit may be supplied by the parallel output of the battery with the small capacity charging circuit to which the AC input power is input without going through the switch.

この様にすれば、診断プロセッサ15からの入力オントリガを通常のドライバ出力等に出来る。   In this way, the input on trigger from the diagnostic processor 15 can be set to a normal driver output or the like.

この様に、第2の実施形態では、診断プロセッサ等の管理装置が、電源部からの警告レベルの通報を監視し、給電が不安定な状態であると判定した場合には、片系運転かをチェックしそうであれば、もう一方の系の電源部を立ち上げ、給電を二重化(並列運転)にしておく。従って、オペレータや保守員に依存することなく、近い将来起こり得る停電や瞬断に備え、システムダウンを未然に防止することが可能となる。   As described above, in the second embodiment, when the management device such as the diagnostic processor monitors the warning level notification from the power supply unit and determines that the power supply is unstable, the operation is one-system operation. If it is likely to be checked, the power supply unit of the other system is started up and the power supply is duplicated (parallel operation). Therefore, it is possible to prevent the system from going down in preparation for a power failure or instantaneous interruption that may occur in the near future without depending on the operator or maintenance personnel.

以上の第1や第2の実施形態の説明では、情報処理装置の電源部も含めた状態管理、制御を行う管理装置を診断プロセッサ15としたが、サービスプロセッサ等であってもよい。   In the above description of the first and second embodiments, the management device that performs state management and control including the power supply unit of the information processing device is the diagnostic processor 15, but may be a service processor or the like.

以上の第1や第2の実施形態の説明では、情報処理装置の電源を、1系電源部と2系電源部を備える二重化構成の例で説明したが、三重化以上の構成であっても、同様に構成できる。   In the above description of the first and second embodiments, the power supply of the information processing apparatus has been described as an example of a duplex configuration including a 1-system power supply unit and a 2-system power supply unit. Can be configured similarly.

即ち、管理装置が運転状態の各電源部から、異常通知を受ける様にし、各電源部毎の異常履歴を記録するようにし、設定された周期のタイミングになると、各電源部毎の異常履歴記録を順次読み出し、異常発生回数が設定された所定の条件に達するかを判定すればよい。   That is, the management device receives an abnormality notification from each power supply unit in the operating state, records an abnormality history for each power supply unit, and records an abnormality history for each power supply unit at the set cycle timing. May be sequentially read out to determine whether the predetermined number of occurrences of the abnormality has been reached.

また、所定の条件に達すると判定されると、2台以上の並列運転状態かをチェックし、そうでなければ、2台以上の並列運転状態に設定する。   If it is determined that a predetermined condition is reached, whether or not two or more units are in parallel operation is checked. Otherwise, two or more units are set in parallel operation.

本発明は、高い可用性と信頼性が要求される大型の情報処理システムに適用できる。   The present invention can be applied to a large information processing system that requires high availability and reliability.
