Abstract

In a system where the power is controlled by a microprocessor, power error logouts normally consist of data bits. In order to analyze a logout, the user must interpret the data bits. It is desirable to provide a program which can analyze the data bits from the power logout and display the logout information in a user friendly format. Such a program would have three significant advantages: 1. An engineering evaluation of the sequence of events leading up to the error would be provided. This would help the user to determine the most logical failing power component. 2. A display of the hardware control latches and the error latches, related to the power fault, would be provided. 3. A display of the actual names of the hardware control latches and the error latches would be provided. Fig.
